Congrats to Scott Dexter for completing his first century!! >>I did a lengthy write up here: >>(http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread.php?t=124763) Nice writeup! Very cool! Sounds like you had a really fun ride! (It also sounds like you did quite well! 17.2 over a 100 mile stretch with hills and stuff sounds pretty darn respectable!) >>--warning, it's very bike-geek. Pshht, not! ... Well okay, maybe the gear ratio / tooth count stuff ... But overall it was very accessible for us non-bike folks. >>Got very lucky with the weather, it was hot before and >>record-hot after (today's heat index is near 120 :o) ... Yeah. I've been hearing about that heat thang. Very strange. It's like the whole country has Texas-envy. ;-P Cheers! (I'll raise a glass to you while I'm in Austin this weekend!) RonL.
