4/30 100 miles -First century of the year!! WahooOOOOOOO!!! Rode the coeur d'alene loop twice with Matt, Tim and Eve.Good luck to Tim who will be doing CDA.
5/7 100 miles -Century ride on Centennial Trail with Lee. Lee is also doing CDA this year and will certainly PR! My seat needed adjustment and I noticed I had a flat when I got home. Maybe it was a slow leak?
5/15 102.1 miles -Lilac Century
5/21 100 miles -Century ride with Jim B, his first of the year.
5/28 91.55 miles -Rode CDA loop with Craig and Erica, killer tempo workout! Good luck to Craig and Erica, they will also be racing CDA this year!
6/4 108.67 miles -Rode the CDA loop twice with James and Haley. Paul did the first loop with us. I was hangin on for my life!
6/5 108.26 miles -Lilac route in reverse, Jim B rode about 18 miles with me. I missed a turn which added the extra 8 miles. I was pretty exhausted after riding back-to-back centuries.
