D2R2 180k again!

Deerfield Dirt Road Randonnee 180k once more -- Py's all over 10th 180k an 11th all over D2R2 with the past first Mystery ride. So far only skipping 2017 as of the special event of the total solar Eclipse around that same weekend since doing this one the very first time in 2007.

And the biggest news: Using the new Giant Cross bike -- a new D2R2 bike after 10 years! :) Only adjusted teh cassette/derailleur to fit a 42 cassette along with the 40x1 ring.

Wet wet wet and soggy painful slow.... to simply summ it up.
