On the advice of Heather H., I stopped in at TrySports in Mt. Pleasant, SC to get some tips on where to ride while in town.
A Dutch guy working there, Thijs van de Kamp, says "meet me here at 7:15." He's about 6'1" 185. I think "Hmmm... ok." He says the island loop is about 30 miles. Perfect. Turns out Thijs is a BEAST! He hasn't been riding long, but the 4th ride he EVER did was up L'alpe D'huez on a STEEL frame a couple years ago. He did it in 1:05. Oh, and his wife was in the Air Force and was the 1st female in the Military Division in Kona this year! Where do I find these people!?
There are no hills in this area, but there's a serious wind all the time. It seemed like we rode into a headwind the entire ride.
Coming back across the bridge on the ride home, Thijs decides to hammer it. No way I'm letting him ride away from me. I pull back up alongside him. He's seems surprised to see me. (I'm guessing he drops most people around here.) This was a serious effort. Holy crap. http://app.strava.com/rides/16971975
