|Power and speed unimpressive but steady. No surprises there.|
Data is fun, but beside the point. The Red Rocks Loop, west of LV, was a beautiful ride, with many riders to spur one on. The loop proper is in the upper left corner of the photo:

I started the ride out by headlamp at oh-dark-hundred in order to get back to the conference in a timely fashion, as there were things actually worth attending this AM. This allowed me to be there, iPhone in hand, for the dawn:
On the way back to the hotel, I got passed by a roadie. Initially I raced him, but then decided to practice not getting hooked into racing people who are outpacing me, as I am wont to do in triathlon. With a twinge of regret, I let him go. He started easing up, and slowly the gap closed. I stopped 8 or so meters off his rear wheel and worked on "not drafting" per triathlon rules. It sure was notably easier to pedal when I was "not drafting" this close to someone.
After a solid finish, I freshened up and headed down for some education and socialization.
