Sanderson to Del Rio, Tx

Today's ride was supposed to be 111 miles. For me I bagged it at 40 miles. We had a head wind the whole way and I was just tired of fighting it. It is now 6:00 in the evening and there are still nine people still out. They are the 9 people who are still attempting to ride the entire thing. They have now been fighting wind for almost twelve hours. They are some very determined ladies.

I am now back from cheering the riders in. Lois S, Sherry, Connie, Marcie, Jan C. and Laurey completed the entire ride. Great job ladies! Donna and Mary Jo rode until they had to be pulled off the route.

Tomorrow is a short day and even with some wind(prediction for tomorrow is lighter winds but still winds) I figure I can do 43 miles. We do not have to get an early start to complete the ride. Breakfast is at 7:30.

If there is one thing that can break a bike rider, it's the wind.
I am proud of you for getting through 40!

Great job doing 40! I can imagine you were pretty tired with that much wind.
