Could someone buy this guy a new pair of socks? Look at the right foot. Riding 20.000 miles a year takes its toll on the clothing.
Gus, Danny & Dan getting ready to roll on the 37 mile Rivet or A route.
It was suggested that I take a pic of these wheels. I'm not into the gear side of cycling...actually, it could be said by an independent observer I am not into any aspect of cycling but anyway, here they are. Must be expensive and propels him to great achievements?
Serious firepower on display in this image. At the rate Travis is improving, he'll line up for the Giro in Spain next year.
Good turnout of the HH guys!
Actually, fairly good turnout with around 40 for our dry ride of the aforementioned 37 mile route or the 31 mile route.
Adam O on the left. The blog has been remiss in not mentioning this talent previously. I have made stars of so many, turning them into giants of the peloton or not.
Milt on the left with Chris. Sure, everyone smiles in the parking lot.
In the background, the Riveters roll out and the lead group will finish with a 24.5 avg. That is with the Thresher climb in there too. Now the A group begins to clip in, preparing to shove off.
OK, good idea to check your watch and wonder if I forgot to send out the A group. Sometimes I do get distracted. In the background, Michael L pulls in but somehow made it to the start of the B group.
And so, we all got out on a modest route and the sun appeared to be setting while we were still miles out. I jumped in with the B group which rode like the A group and I finished with a 21mph average. Some talk about the A group's sprint toward New Albany with a few guys passing unexpectedly on the right. HEY! Cut that out!
Hey all you Thursday New Albany friends (and you are all my friend whether you want to be or not cause I'm that kind of guy), things are LOOKING UP!!! It appears as Thursday progresses it will become dryer, brighter and by the time 6:00pm rolls around, upper 60 temps, light winds and we will be rolling out of town. While the rain threat diminishes, the threat of attack by wild hyenas rises but there is enough of that below. Thursday's routes:
