New PR for 200K distance.

To punish myself for DNF'ing the SIR Spring 200K, I rode a hard 200K with Don and Elaine Jameson, Shane Balkovetz and Jim Jensen. All of them being stronger riders than I was, I had a good time hanging with them (for dear life), and pulled off a sub 9 hour 200K. My first ever.

Notable fact: Shane did this suffering from Pneumonia.

We had occasional splotches of rain, and glorious sun on the finishing stretch on Highway 9. Shane gave me a ride home, and I was most happy. Next week is the ORR 200K, an ACP Brevet that is the first PBP qualifying ride for the year.
