Quivira Park Bike Group Ride 6 - June 5, 2010

While temperatures were only in the high 70's with overcast skies, the humidity was extremely high which really sapped the energy of the eight riders we had today (actually 9 but Carlo had mechanical issues and had to drop at Quivira Park before we even started).  We completed the Holiday Drive Route and had to detour on 127th Street around the construction between Mur-Len and Black Bob Roads.  The detour took us down Indian Creek Trail from Mur-Len to Black Bob and then we through the neighborhoods around the back of Olathe East High School to 133rd Street where we turned back north on Quivira Road back to Quivira Park.

Our SAG stop was at the Charles J. Stump Park which we use for many of the Quivira Park Bike Group rides.  Pictured from left to right are Ed, Bob, Ron, Joe, Garrett, Greg, Steve, and Rick.  Joe rode his cross bike which did not deter him keeping up with all others on light weight road bicycles.  Garrett and Rick were new riders with us this week and hope they will be back for future rides.

My total distance was a bit over 68 kilometers as I did a warm-up ride and we had a few more Ks with the detour.  The map of my ride can be viewed from my Garmin Connect Account.

For those of you on Facebook please become a fan of the Quivira Park Bike Group Page as I need only a few more fans to obtain a unique URL and thus make it easy for those both on or off Facebook to view.
