    Though this was supposed to be my "recovery" day. These guys hammered down QC and made me dig deep to deliver the goods. Always appreciate the challenge, even when my legs are screaming "Enough!!" Thanks guys! Thanks to Al for the lead and the new route. Now, Al can you do something about the wind?? Ha!

    Awesome route,, both long and short routes. The long route extends out a little further then rolls back into the shorter route. Nice flat roads away from the major urban areas. The routes extend out to Gilbert and Queen Creek. See you all out on Sunday!
