Rode with Rene' and Chris T. on Sunday for a 50+ mile training ride on many of the roads that will be used for the Sub-5. Looks like a great route on the farm roads through Kane County. They are in good shape and some really nice flat straight stretches you can get some good speed going and didn't see a stop light the whole way. We did the first 50 in 2:28 and change. Nice ride Rene' and Chris!!!!!!!!!
