Saturday morning, got up extra early to ride. Rode w/ Steve Steele from Hickam to join up with the 7am HACC ride on Schofield Barracks. Left the house by 5:45, to get 20 miles and a good climb up Kunia before the "official" 7am start. We just made it as the group was rolling away from the parking lot. We headed back out onto Kunia to link up with the Tradewinds Team, ended up hammering for about 35 miles up Kole Kole Pass and down to Dillingham Airfield. It was a hot day, and after getting in 60 miles before 9am, I was ready to call it quits, but still had about 30 miles to go. The climb up Pineapple Hill was a hard slog. Garmin died about 7-8 miles before the end, so this graph is missing some crucial stats. Finished just under 90miles...longest ride in over a year....not an easy one with several climbs and riding with a fast group.
