Yeah speed wasn't really a problem - the cars ahead of me were all 80+ until we got to Tomball. Then from Tomball to 45 is probably 15-20 minutes depending on traffic and lights. I should of timed it, but I got home about 20 minutes before my post here. It also rained for about 5 miles (enough to wash off all the bugs).

Map from The Thirsty Parrot to Atascocita area

290/Beltway = 70.7 mi – about 1 hour 17 mins
2920/249/Beltway = 69.1 mi – about 1 hour 27 mins
2920/Cypresswood = 66.2 mi – about 1 hour 41 mins

Haha, I'll post them up tonight... I'm watching my children at the moment, so just doing some quick typing and reading...

And I got home by 2:20pm. Wife was still happy!

Yeah...where's the picture of my cardboard girlfriend? Glad to hear everyone made it home safe. It was a fun run and the pace was just right...only hit triple digits a few times. It was good to meet a few new people.

Looking forward to the next ride with you guys.

By the way... a few people went down on Jimmyz ride today. All is well.
