What's New In Douchey?: Custom Frames And A Cold Chamois
Normally, I meet up with the ride about three miles into it, but on Saturday I decided to do the whole shebang. When I arrived in the parking lot, there were about 80 people staging their bikes... I was shocked. It was cold and windy, and even on warm days there's usually no more than 50 riders, but that day it was packed. I'm still not sure why.
Mongo rode as well as I have in months. I guess I accidentally stumbled onto the perfect combination of training, doping, nutrition, and rest. I hung tough in a sea of Wiliers, Litespeeds, Madones, and smugness...finishing the 40+ mile ride at a 21.7 average speed.
