There’s nothing worse than a mechanical taking you out of a race.
They can’t always be avoided, but it feels great lining up for a race and knowing that you will fade before your machine. With the first race of the spring series only one week away, we got together to wash the harsh winter residue off our bikes, and make sure that we would be riding our bikes over the line, not walking.
The boys at Campus Cyclery were nice enough to let us use the shop after-hours. The Price? A cooler full of beer and food on the grill. Whenever we get together it is as much about bikes as it is about having a good time. Needless to say, some of us may have gotten more lubed than our bikes.
