To All interested,

Saturday was Stage 2 of the 2011 Tour De Mad Dog.
The Lawrenceburg Loop.

Ride Report:
One tough ride that we generally do in the earlier months of the year. This day was no different. Well, maybe it was. The warmer than normal temperatures warned us that there may be a chance of rain or storms.  The temperatures at the start had people dressing in about every fashion possible. Sleeveless, Arm warmers, jackets, vest,leg warmers and tights. Up to the first stop in Baghdad the weather seemed better that it had been since last October. Peaks of sunshine, Light wind not to hot, not to cold It was kinda like baby bears porridge, just right. The ride from Baghdad to Lawrenceburg was a little different. Left Baghdad with nice conditions then rain came, lightning came, Hail came. I have never seen (jellybean size)hail before on a bike ride. Luckily we had already stopped when this had started. I think all riders got to escape this by taking cover where it could be found. Eventually the hail and rain subsided and we got to continue to Lawrenceburg. This was kinda like Baby bears chair; Just right then Crack,bang a bad break. The third Leg from Lawrenceburg to Mt. Eden started with wet roads but the sun came out quickly and dried them up and brought with it some hills and lightly traveled roads. This seemed to be that day we were all looking forward too. Baby bears Bed,you get the picture. Now what could look forward to for the last leg of our journey. Leaving Mt. Eden we took a right right into some bad headwind, Papa Bears Bed, Finally we got to take a right on 44 for some nice tailwind, Mama bears Bed. Now where to go from here. A left onto Rockbridg. The story appeared to be over here. Back to reality,headwind and hills. Luckily this was not to long of a stretch and we got to 53. Here's where the story started back up again. Seems like the bears found us in there automobiles and chased us back to the start.  Ah, a storybook ride.

Thanks to Steve Rice For Captaining us on the Ride. I have 31 riders listed as finishers.

The Stage Winner was Teresa Ledbetter and the Bonus was for Carbon fiber Frames. There is also a 2 minute difficulty bonus for this ride.
If you see an (*) by your name I have you being on a carbon frame. If I'm wrong and your were not on a carbon frame or I don't have you listed as being on a carbon frame let me know and I will correct your time.
Looks like we will have some movement on the podium. Results to come later after I get the bonus adjusted.
