The Cyclist's Christmas Party was last night, hosted by none other than Kenda Janet. The late notice (surprising since Jan-O is a dominant force in corporate communications) kept the turn-out light, 13-14 cyclists. Below, Janet poses with Steve O and John Day, aka, Jr. Muscle Dude. John had a tough back end of the year, crashing on the descent of Jack Run and then later, falling after touching tires.
Below, Eve and Tim Faigly in the background with Corvair & Franz on the right. I was told Steve O came looking for a date but left disappointed. Next year, the event will move out of downtown Columbus to a more parking friendly location, probably New Albany.
Quite a few rides tentatively scheduled for the next few days but the biggest is probably Veloscience Bike Works' New Year's Day Ride at 1:00pm (if start temp is above 28) and more info can be found here: http://velosciencebikeworks.com/word/2014/12/23/new-years-day-ride-kick-off-2015-right
Also, John Gorilla has invited the most hardy to an 8:00am New Year's Day Ride:
This is an open invitation for a New Years ride with an 8:00 departure from downtown Granville in front of Whit’s/Village Coffee. Plan on 5 hours; road, gravel and maybe some dirt. Pace will be in the 15-17 mph range and a decent number of us will be on fat bikes.
