So out of interest I sucked the track list out of my Garmin GPS60CS for the Devil's Creek ride on Sunday.

 

For the morning section, from the campground to lunch in Groveland, the distance was 61.4 miles at an average speed of 24mph taking 2h 35m.

 

On the ride back my GPS shut off for 2 miles. The first part of this leg was 35.6 miles at an average speed of 17mph and took 2h 4m.

 

Once I turned my GPS back on the last section was 15.5 miles at an average speed of 20mph, taking 46 minutes.

 

Now these times and averages include the time we were parked or picking me up and fixing my handle bars, etc..

 

Looking at the track log in Mapquest and Google Earth, it follows precisely the map handed out at registration, so good job navigating Bert (EbarDP48)

Tiger Tom,

 

That looks painful. Hope you're okay.

 

 

A few miscellaneous photos from Sunday.  If anyone would like their name in the photo caption, then shoot me a pm and I'll attach an identity to the mug.

 

Buford Ross decides to air down.

 Mike Driver (right) is applying tape and chewing gum. Rob Parker full of hi-jinks and shenanigans.  Notice the yellow under Rob’s jacket collar.

All excellent photos.  I'll bite and admit the above last photo of the "last minute repair" is me in the blue jacket.  In the background is Rob Parker.  Why are we smiling?  Because that bike we are "tinkering" with does not belong to either one of us!!!  Ha Ha Ha  

 

DRDave ... how'd that front brake feel? 

 

Of course ... JUST KIDDING.   We were just killing a bit of time since when you ride sweep you obviously do not have to suit up and zoom out in any hurry.

 

Hey, in the wild isn't it the way of nature to thin the numbers by way of the stragglers in the herd get picked off by the lions and such? Swampy, we need to talk!!!

 

Thanks to all for making it the event that it was.

Bonus points for anyone who got a photo of that yellow underwear inflated!  (the life vest...  not my fruit of the looms.)

Swampy thanks for a great ride the event was really excellent! Thanks to all for the kind words and well wishes. I had a great time all Saturday and right up to the end of the third whoop as Bert described on Sunday. My awesome wife hasn't even asked about my latest Dennis Kirk order for a new brake light assembly! Got a few weeks off work, will use the time to watch some instructional videos and reread the chapter on whoops. Again, a fantastic event. Take care.

REPLAY:

I just Love John Hartimans take on us standing there looking at Graeme.

I can hear him as he typed the words"and there were about 6 of us looking at Graham with our wisdom..."Dude it would be all swollen & blue by now, you just bumped it a little...nothing broken...lets ride">

 "We come to his aid and he rolls over and comes to his senses. He complains about a sore shoulder but gets on his bike and rides to lunch. At lunch he tells me that his shoulder is sore and he doesn't want to hold us up for the afternoon section. With that we wish him well and he heads back to the truck via SR50 west. So I get an email from him today.. Seems he broke his collarbone in 4 places and is set for surgery this week. He rode half the morning with a collarbone broken in 4 places...." .

....and there were about 6 of us looking at Graham with our wisdom..."Dude it would be all swollen & blue by now, you just bumped it a little...nothing broken...lets ride">

I had the surgery last Tuesday. They put in a plate and screwed the pieces in, bad ass scar top of the shoulder to just off the sternum. Pains not bad and mobility is improved. It was probably the expressed on site wisdom that got me back on and riding. Not sure who said it but the wisdom I remember was "there's no bones sticking out and you wouldn't be able to move your arm around if it was too bad". Using arm signals to get back kinda sucked though.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

 

Chicks dig scars with good stories...  so be sure to come up with some good ones! 

 

Stories, that is...  not more scars.

Graemebo,

You'd be surprised by keeping the mood upbeat & your andrenaline going, what you will & can do after a Richloam Yard Sale. I've broken my Collarbone several times & my shoulder twice, the pain & discomfort ain't no fun, you kicked ass by getting yourself out of there. If you knew what you know now, I am sure you would not have climbed back on your bike. Good luck on the recovery & lets ride! 

John

Swampy, 

Can you post your pics for this ride?

I know you took my picture because you where by the trail two times as I rode past on Saturday with your camera up for a shot.

You must have some special shots from Sunday as well.
