Rode up the coast with Matt. We did 80 miles, and it was hard. our average speed was 20 MPH and we peaked out at 30 mph in some spots. it was quite hard for me and I pushed to keep up with Matt. We slowed down a bit on the last 10-15 miles and I had terrible leg cramps in my right thigh. It was quite hot at 80-90 degrees, even on the coast.
food - I had a couple of gels in the morning, and a couple bottles of powerade and lemonade. i had a 16 oz coke to on the way home. total food intake was probably 500 calories.
