The 2005 Honolulu Century
25 September 2005
This Year's theme: BRUTAL
I made it the entire 100 miles---I'm still not sure how; never will I brag again about the ease of Honolulu's
Century ride. Bob Mon and the Hawaii Bicycling League did a bang up job this year. And Japan Airlines got the
visitors here in even larger numbers. The weather for officially being fall was the warmest, most humid day of the year-
which made for extremely uncomfortable conditions and a plethora of ailments ensued.....
From his looks you knew he knew what kind of day it was to be.
Maybe she thought all would be good.
This lad thinks like her.
But as the day wore on, the harsh reality set in.
The scorching heat had taken it's toll; only the fittest were well..
Although all survived and many finished--after 1 sun scorched sweltering morning.
