"Haven't done a Chainlink thing in a while... saw this and thought it a good/fun thing to participate in.  Will a set of toothbrushes and a couple of bottles of degreaser work?"

Hey Alan,

It was nice seeing you again. Yes, Sol is the correct spelling...it is short for Solomon which is my full name.

Thanks for coming on today's ride. I hope we'll see you on more club rides.

BTW, Howard's suggestion for the "Slow Century" is an excellent one. It's a really good way to do your first century.
