We demolished a road biker up the steep hills, we passed her and never saw her again. Alas, that was probably the first and only road biker we will be able to beat. The rest of the day we were beaten by other roadies and mountain bikers. 11km in to the ride, we hit an incredible milestone: 3000km / 3 mega ...
