This weekend's ride became an A ride. Dr. John spun us up to 30+mph uphill on Canada and I went through three bottles of water on the ride -- after never drinking more than half! It was a nice way to get used to the new bike position.

That was sweet! Sorry about the 15 or so attacks. The warm weather made me do it.

The climb through the backside of Huddart is such a cool addition. We'll have to do that from here on.

To all the Tour de Cure riders blocking the bike lane... it's all good. You're on the bike and raising money. Seeing that many cyclists makes me happy.

I got home and I had to rush to build two bikes. I test rode the little one too. Man, those bikes are scary fast, I mean fast and scary.

Damm, I'm sleepy now.

Had fun, as always.

I thought we were moving along pretty good on Cañada, until we were challenged by those two guys on the hill. I just had to respond. :) We really picked up the pace at that point and had a pretty good run.

I'd like to keep the Huddart part as option, if the wait for those that by-passed it wasn't too long. With a bigger group it might serve as a re-group point.

I like the Huddart option because it keeps francois' and Dr_John's legs tired -- as a bypasser I get to feel so much faster when we regroup :).
Dude, you were rockin the Canada finish line. You rode really well.

Must be the bike :D.

You need to offer those P3Cs as loaners for the next RBR ride -- the pace on Canada keeps getting faster and faster. I call dibbs on the 58.
You don't want these bikes on the group ride. The are meant to go straight, fast. No braking allowed.

I mean, look at these dagger brake levers.

That was awesome John. We're seeing the best riding come out of you now.

Must be the tubeless baby!

Sheesh, I innocently show up (for the first time), thinking this would be a nice Sunday morning ride. Even if the fast guys blow off the front, there would be plenty of more sensible folks laying back. Not so! Even the backsliders were hauling.

Water? I went dry, after going through my single. Never did that before on such a short ride.

They sure took a long time to catch up.

Yeah, he flashed by me many times.
