Gila River Valley 200k done.

Gila River Valley 200k done. Quite windy today - flags were on edge and road signs were vibrating. It's great when the wind has your back, not so good into the teeth of the wind. 126 miles in just over 8 hours. I would have finished in well under 8 hrs but my riding buddy had to stop twice for... uh.... GI issues and was dog-ass-slow for the last 25 miles. I do not leave anyone behind when they're not feeling well.

I am whipped - did I mention that the wind was brutal? We had it all day and at one point, were riding directly into it. 11 mph was damn near impossible.
