The BackBlast:

YHC arrived just a couple minutes before 6 with no other cyclists @ Wawa.  Suddenly 5 showed up all accumulating some EC with a 5AM start – nice work, men.  Trump and Crabcakes had to depart at 6, leaving the fearless foursome.

No secrets this gloom.  Pre blast announced we’d head to THE hill (it’s been a while), with a quick exploration through new (to some pax) areas of Braden Woods. 

Plan was executed.  A few new or unfamiliar roads in Braden Woods for a couple pax; essentially a circumnavigation of Braden Woods.  Then 2 round trips over I75 and return.  YHC escorted the pax to Hidden River then turned around for home.  The other (3) pax made it back to home / Wawa safely.

Pincher and Cottontail have already murdered all the segments travelled this day, so no more bling for those dudes, but Pincher picked up a couple Local Legends.  Fireball was awarded with a gob of Strava bling – a handful of PRs on his new machine, with a few >25MPH.  YHC felt a lil spicy and picked up a 3rd best on LWR 2015 Sprint segment at the end of Hidden River with Fireball in tow (and only cuz I didn’t announce I’d be hunting).  

Good ride today.  Thanks for letting me lead!
