    The intermediate group was great as always, I thrive on the challenge from this group. I showed about 8 miles at 8.1 average speed, can that be right? It felt like it:-). Can't wait till next Wednesday. I will be riding today as well, I plan on being at the same parking lot at about 5:45, hope to see some familiar faces out there
