Another blown weather forecast but this time in our favor! Warmer temps an no rain. A small group showed up to tackle Black Oak – Crawl Hill extension going counter clockwise. About 50 miles with 2,400 gain. The route is mostly flat with two significant climbs. The pace was a mixture of cruising – crushing – cruising. I like this mixture. Some time to talk and catch up but also some quality intensity. The drag from the base of Crawl Hill to Sulphur City needs to be a STRAVA segment. With a tailwind and well working rotation the speed is unbelievable. I always get caught up in that section of road for some reason. What stretch of road inspires you?
Not many pics this Saturday. I just let myself enjoy the good company and spent the rest of the time in the drops trying to hang onto wheels. Definitely felt like I rode my bike at the end! Good stuff.
Favorite new socks. I know…they’re socks. But these are stupid comfortable. Swiftwick – Made in the USA! Thanks Brenda Sue.
If it’s good enough for Marianne Vos then…
