Humid, Hot and never a true tailwind were the weather conditions for day 2. We departed Vermillion and formed a Lane Hogs / FAB pace line, and what a pace line is was. The Big Blue Tandem in the lead, followed by Snakebite on the Big Dummy drafting behind those two monster bikes is like following 2 semi's down the interstate. The rest of the pace line included: The President, Bald N Surly, The Owner and myself, not to mention 4 or 5 others which do not have blogs to link to. It was a lively pace, about 20 mph +/- depending on hills. We held this group together for about the first 20 miles or so. After this the group split up into several smaller groups for the remainder of the ride. It was hot, it was humid and we really never ended up with true tailwind. I rolled into Sioux Falls about 12:20 glad to beat the worst of the heat.
So that wraps up my 4th MS ride. I had a great time and had the opportunity to ride with a lot of blogger friends. I even had the chance to ride an hour or so with the Mayor, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
As always it was fun to be out on the road, but the greater cause is much more important and hopefully by us all showing up and doing our part we can put and end to MS and then find the next cause to ride for.
