      Ya, the pace was 13 overall. Last long ride i did with 2 others was 15.5 which was really moving for me. The group only took one break so it was moving along.

    great weather, not hot at all! We averaged a 13 to 14 pace today.

    Sorry Mr T. I went to the Concord parking lot by mistake. I did finally get to Lexington Depot by 9:15, but you had already left. I ended up riding uo and down the minute man trail which was very nice.
