We had an uneventful ride and took it at an easy pace. I was glad not to feel anyone wanted to push it today as I have the 200K tomorrow and a lot to accomplish this afternoon before I can go.
Also caught son Erik's (age 6) baseball game after the ride. He got 3 hits off of the coach pitches and didn't have to use the T at all!! Great job Erik!

Late addition..... I forgot to note that I tried the "ice sock" this morning. Stuff a bunch of ice cubes in a long sock, tie it closed, and drape it over your neck under your jersey on a hot day to help stay cool. The melting water runs down your back.
Very refreshing. In dry heat with low humidity it would be ideal. With our muggy summer weather, the damp jersey never really dries. I will take a sock along tomorrow and probably use it when the heat of the day hits it's worst which will also probably coincide with the last couple of hours of the ride.
