It started very well since I woke up at 5:33 i.e. 2 minutes before my alarm. Also, it wasn't raining, (yet) despite the forecasts.
I assumed I had the time because of these two minutes, but I was too confident and I missed the 6:10 by a few. On the bright side I escorted Leander who was late too, but had no idea where to go. We Caught up with Tony and Eric who had a flat, and then a second one.
Oh it would have been nice to ride Hawk Hill with the group because it was windy... Even better this technique garantees nice PR on strava: http://yfrog.com/5klg6iqj
Anyway, the group at the top was big, I've never seen that many people on a morning ride. I think It was because of the Donuts and Coffee courtesy of Alex and Mission Cycling. This was the highlight of the ride: Thanks guys. I only took coffee because if I ever want to break the 8mn on this ride, I need to trim fat :-)
From there it only went downhill, literally: Rain, one flat tire in the mission, late nanny and one weird email. Looking forward to the next ride.
