First ride of season - Acadia National Park - Park Loop plus Cadillac

I was dreading this ride for a number of reasons:
  1. Not well rested and have only ridden 3 times this summer
  2. Its going to rain
  3. Riding with Henry Fox is always hard. Plus Tom Loring has been on the bike and training for an ironman
  4. My bike has a problem with a stripped screw in the derailleur hanger.
The weather was fantasic and a tighten the 2nd screw and the bike was fine. The rest of my fears were realized.  It was a massive suffer-fest and as nice as it was out its never fun to get dropped and then having everyone wait for you a dozen time. 

Trying to hang on right from the start
This machine is fast
