This was a great group of guys on the coolest mix of bikes possible.

Thanks to all that made the ride, it was an excellent group of strong skilled riders. A big Thanks goes out to Steve for driving the sag vehicle, having water available in that heat was paramount, and a few of us took advantage of the many floor pumps on board as well.
