    Love the ride. Did 100. The ride was nice and flat. Other than the wind it was a perfect ride.

    Missed a loop, so ended up with 84 miles. No regrets. Pooped (in the exertion sense!) Windy and warm, as compared to the Udder that was windy and chilly! Regret not stuffing my Under Armor Heatgear top in my bag to swap with the jersey. Would have been much more comfortable.
    Btw, absolutely gorgeous cycling area. Going to plot it on Map My Ride. DEFINITELY going back here for rides!

      CBG ride.... About 40 from Irving and the lakefront to Highland Park and back.... But I was wrong.... there is a short rider (20 mile) ride from the Channel Trail.... I figured to extra 20 round trip from home to the Channel, not Irving.... I'll let you know what I end up doing....

    Just checked weather prediction for Burlington: 74 > 86 degrees. Chance of rain ~ 20%. Winds out of the SSW at 8mph early, up to ~ 12 mph by noon. Update on Friday to follow. I'm planning on doing my second century, so I'll be there to begin when it cooler and calmer earlier. Anyone with the same thought and wanting to join, let me know to set a meetup spot.
