SS - well I met and exceeded my goal of doing the 50 mile ride on a Single Speed by beating my previous record. Terrific weather. Got passed by tons of folks the first 6 miles as can't go fast on the flat. Clogged climbing O'Neill cell tower trail getting stuck behind slow folks in granny gear. Spun out on big hill on East Ridge in Caspers but pedaled it all regardless. 1 stop up star rise to get heart rate down and otherwise cleaned everything, including Chiquita hill at the top. Mechanical issue with 2 loose bolts on my chain ring. Dove and Antonio wrench stations didn't have the tool to tighten. Shout out to PERFORMANCE BIKES for giving me the torx wrench so I could have it to tighten the bolts the rest of the ride. I did make it. Skunked on the raffle again - they just don't pull my number. Raised $135K today for bikes for Africa and Team Rwanda, so many thanks to the Planning Committee and all the volunteers and sponsors that helped with the event. Another successful Rwanda Ride!

Woke up to major wind. Temps warm but the wind was brutal till 10 am or so. Everywhere seemed to be I was riding into a head-wind. Tough. Just under 1200 riders but $144,000 raised today. Lots of stream crossings. They rerouted the end to avoid riding up to the SCE tower, which was fine by me as getting warm and tired by then. My GPS showed 46 miles exactly and only 4,150 feet of elevation gain. Go figure. Fun raffle event even though I didn't win anything as usual. Big shout-out to all the volunteers to help pull off a successful 11th Annual Rwanda Ride.
