This event popped up in one of my social feeds last month and I knew I had to be there. I even created a team for our self proclaimed riding club and surprisingly almost everyone joined up. We had Gavin, Mike, Marshal, Andy (honorary member and Gavin's future son-in-law) and myself. Having it at Two Roads was great because they have such a variety of beer but the only thing I didn't like was the course because to get to 45 miles you had to do another lap of the top most section of the course.
We went out with the first group and the first part of the course was wonderful because it went down by Long Island.

Today's weather was stellar. Leaving my house it was 51 degrees but in Stratford, with the sun shining brightly it was already 65.
Never got the guy's name, but he was from Glastonbury and he had a broken finger and couldn't change his tube. Can't blame him really because the bead on that tire was damn near impossible to get off the rim.
It took all of us to do it but we got him rolling again and as I was in line for beer I saw him rolling in.
