PAA 2013 Day One - DATA

A brutal 1st day...there was some serious climbing involved and one windy coast.  This group earned the badge right from the start.  I had a very scary front flat on the 1st major descent, "Bang!" - I had to hang on and ride-it-out straight to stop.  It really shook me - so the apprehension set in on the series twisty tight downhills.  My HR monitor had a max heart rate listed in my data 241bpm but that was from the wind going downhill.  However max was about 192bpm...and yes it hurt.  More on day one later...
