Longest Bike Ride Ever

Thanks to those who supported us in our Tour de Cure for Diabetes. It was the longest bike ride Jake and I have done so far on our new road bikes, 70 miles. It was a breeze for Jake but a little more difficult for me. I drafted my pack of 5 the entire way. Thanks team, sorry I'm a pocket hog. We averaged about 18 mph and took advantage of every free goody pit stop available. I only had one melt down about 2 miles before the end.

Wowzers! I do believe that going just a couple of miles is tough for me. 70 is amazing!
