47 - My final route36 viewsMarco and Ruth decided to stay for lunch. Gary lived nearby, so rode on home. That left me, Alex, Henry and Doug to ride back north to our initial meeting point where the cars were parked. It was a nice ride, apart from the headwinds. It was mostly flat except for one last climb up Edgewood. Alex gave me a ride home (as I had ridden to the start).

Between tulips, bad weather, lost riders, emergency repairs, and of course Ron's crash, this definitely turned out to be an "epic" ride, just not in the way we had thought. I know Bow was as glad as I was that everyone turned out ok in the end.

07 - Waiting at an intersection43 viewsThe first part of my commute was through urban areas, I was busy battling traffic and didn't take too many pictures. Here's one of us waiting at an intersection.

BTW several people thought I was absolutely crazy to ride 50 miles on a full-suspension, small-wheeled bike while carrying a big backpack that was even heavier than the bike.
