Traffic jam into Huddart Park?

top_of_park_gate_closed
It was Thursday which meant riding through the park and this time, I was determined not to be bringing up the rear. Thankfully, everyone else cooperated, chatting away somewhere behind me while I worked my tail off trying to get up the steep parts without falling apart. I might have even had a decent time for that segment if the upper gate wasn’t still closed (as you can see in the photo), causing us to have to cyclocross around it.

Now it’s time to get the final preparations done for France, which is coming up in just 6 days. Got to start riding the Bike Friday Pocket Rocket again, and get the kinks out of the shifting. Folding a bike up and packing it into a suitcase can be unkind to cables, especially if you do it in a hurry.

The return of Nigel

Nigel on the left, returning from the UK to torture the rest of us. Does that make him an international terrorist?

Big group of us out there today, Kevin counted 10, we’ll see how well I can do here… Kevin, Kevin, Eric, George, JR, Todd (not Doctor T), Mark, Nigel, and up on Skyline we picked up Millo. Plus me makes 10. Don’t ask me what went on at the front on the way up Kings; I wasn’t there.

It was nice, it was dry, we brought leg warmers but didn’t need them. I felt ok, Kevin felt better. Two more of these rides before France (next Thursday and then Tuesday), one more Sunday ride, but on our Bike Fridays, not our Trek Madones. Not much time left!
