Well, it happened again, another Detour. Wow. First of all, thank you to everyone who came out for the event. Without you, I would need more creativity to provide myself with a lot of imaginary friends for the ride. So thanks for making me appear somewhat sane.
Speaking of which, how about that dancing bear a mile into the ride? Thanks to Mary Lynn for sending us off with a smile, and also putting me up the night prior, cutting down my commute to the start now that I no longer call Manchester home.
And despite my late warning, Glenn came through with the water stop in Hampden again. Hopefully everyone who needed a refill found it.
And of course, many, many thanks to Justin for joining me this year, not just in promoting the event far better than I ever did, but also for his thoughts and opinions along the way. Two heads are better than one, especially when the one is mine.
So now relax, rest up, take a shower (you don't want to know how long it took me to get to that), and we'll hopefully see you again in twelve months, if not sooner!
Welcome to the site for all the latest information about Connecticut's dirty little century, roughly 118miles in early September, about half off paved surfaces. Please start by reading The Basics (this is a link) for information about the ride (if current year Basics is not yet available, the previous year will give a general gist).
Rather than answer individual questions repeatedly, please address questions as "comments" to the MOST RECENT post and I will answer in a blog posting for all to see.
