Friday was done in two parts.  The first 15 miles was with Loy and Zack around the bike paths in Longmont.  The second 15.5 miles was going to Hygiene to meet Richie then turning around and riding back to my house with him.  30.5 miles.  Yearly miles -3179.6.  Weekly miles – 168.4; therefore I need to ride at least 32 miles on Saturday to reach my 200 mile goal.
