    Good ride...advertised pace was 16-18 and we seemed to meet that goal (a little on the high-side though). Chris made the ride but got a flat on Pecos Eastbound and we lost the main group. WELL...Chris broke off at Chandler and 48th and got another flat near Kyrene and had used up his CO2. Needless to say, he had a walk ahead. The weather was perfect...only a little sun with mainly cloud cover. The end was beautiful and cooler than when we started the ride.

    Thanks everyone for the turnout!
