04/29/17 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.
