Ride Review By Ken Frankenbery:

This was my second year doing the 100. A tough day to dress for with 40’s & heavy fog to start at 730 am  but upper 70’s & sunny by noon. Knowing what was coming helped ( 4700 feet of climbing), and having my good friend Juan join me really was a plus. But not doing any group rides made it tough to stay with the pack as I just didn’t feel comfortable with so many riders so close. A rider in front of me had a flat on a fast downhill and that was enough for me so I dropped back & let group go. I picked up a few smaller groups to work with & still had to dig deep into the suitcase of courage after mile 80. A great ride with great company & so lucky to be able to train in Florida!
