That was great. A good size group left early and did the ~70 mile route. The 'big boys' set a stupid fast pace right at the start and the group broke up, but everyone found their way and had a good ride. Here's a few pics I took.
Headed to Mistletoe
How to survive flat roads on a SS when riding with geared riders. Grab a wheel and catch a draft, and hang on for dear life. Spin at 1,000rpm for a few seconds, coast, repeat. If you let more than about 4ft of air get between you and the guy in front - you're done, and they're gonna ride away.
So glad I got a pic of this awkward almost-fall haha
I'm going to start marketing some add on fork crown mounted aerobars. I'll post the link to KickStarter when it's ready.
~40 miles into the day, with ~30 miles left to go - nothing hits the spot like some Dixie Champagne and a Snickers bar.
