Sunday Evening Ride gets a BONK!








The

Pace

was

hot

until we met up with
retired b.i.k.e
Board Member
Nick Wade.



Then it got hotter!


A Stalwart 3 of the venerable Rose City Wheelman, I warned everyone to watch out.

But Nick spiced it up and everyone
played along.

Nick attacked and countered until Alex revealed his speed. Classy Nick had to get home to his beautiful wife and turned around at Cornelius Pass. Bidding him "au revoir" Cyclisme descended into the dark wet Rock Creek valley.

Upon the climb out, the wheels fell off. Despite literally STOPPING to eat, people began to experience carbo depletion. All the attacking had taken it's toll. By the time we descended Logie Trail road, people wanted into the car.

"Wow, I get the whole warm up thing," said Alex.
"I guess this is how we REALLY learn," said Glen.

Danny elected to stay on his bike and whistle wee, wee, wee all the way home.

Sounds like a good ride guys. The Sunday afternoon/evening time slot doesn't work for me, so Jeff and I did a nice Skyline ride early in the day.

Here's the route:

I have a Cyclisme route map list started on MapMyRide.com I'll post the details to the blog later on. We can make a ride library of good training ides, organize by type of ride/difficulty/etc.
