Early Birds - South

Did 50 miles in the wet and rain on Saturday, on the Trek. This morning, despite the threat of rain, I headed out to Manorville for the Early Birds ride. Due to weather, other rides, and schedule conflicts, it was about a month since I last joined this ride.
Despite the clouds there was a good turnout of riders. We had favorable winds going out and some tough headwinds on the return. Still, we managed 22 mph average speed for the 52 mile ride. Also, a nice 30 mph sprint at the end, which is typical for the south route.
