(If you have any questions I encourage you to email me).
Here is the Garmin data from the last time I rode this route:
Shooting for about a 16 mph average pace. If possible.
This will probably be about 5 hours riding time, close to 6 hours total time. Bring food and water! Also, at about 11 am we should reach the Newport Back Bay area and there is a convenience mart where we can take a break and buy some food/drinks, so bring a little cash. Sunscreen would be a good idea, too.
Please be a bit early as the posted MeetUp time is Clipped in roll out time.

Look for my blue MINI Cooper with the roof rack on top. I'm riding a Blue AC1 racing bike that is red, white and black in color.
