The Rooster Tail Ride

How many times do you get up in the morning, look out the window, see a dry road, get your gear on and turn up at the start, only to have it start raining the minute before the bunch rolls out???? Well, today was another one of those rides. Despite the cold and the rain, 13 roadies still made the effort.

Greyhound (who was originally mistaken for Grazza) was spotted doing ekky k's before the bunch ride around 4:30am. The paceline was a relatively smooth affair, although it was pretty hard to see anything with the constant dirty spray in your face. Bumblebee was making good calls at the back of the pack and got in some sprint practice for Thursday nite.

Haddock Dve - Special K led us into the climb with a good strong turn. Grazza made a come back on the last hill - that heavy breathing was freaking me out a bit!!!!! Lord Garmin opted for the small chain ring for the climb - you must be a sprinter with that ego LG.

Congrats to Woody who won his division of the 6hr MTB ride in Rocky on the weekend. No wonder your legs were smashed today. Nice pink tool bag SpyCat.
