Sun Up on Day One

Full light at 05:30 on day one of the Rocky Mountain 1200.Full light at 05:30 on day one of the Rocky Mountain 1200.

We started riding with the 90 hour group at 22:00 (10 pm) the previous evening and sun up found Ready2Ride, Eric and me in a line of six with Captain Dave Read, Big Mark Roehrig and one other guy. Over my shoulder Eric is saying, "Hey, we're going to fast!" Nonsense I thought, we can't go too fast. Just ahead of us was a little truck stop where we pulled in for water and a cup of coffee. After looking at the food service situation and the apparent fact there were no waitresses and 20 hungry bikers looking to order breakfast, we decided to continue on leaving Mark and Captain Dave to the mercy of the restaurant. Ondelay Muchachos, Viva la velo muy rapido! Err something like that.
