Sunday afternoon was a wonderful afternoon to go for a ride. The temperatures in the Piedmont of North Carolina was in the low 80s. I rode with the Cat 8 Racing group out of Lewisville, NC on Sunday afternoon. We had approximately 16 riders in the group. Our route was the traditional Flat Louise, which is around 44 miles. Click here for information on the route including a turn by turn cue sheet from the web site of Forsyth Bike. The ride averaged right at 19 mph despite there being a strong head wind no matter which way the group turned. I rode to and from the ride to save gas and get in a little extra mileage. We had a great time on this ride and everyone rode very well.
