A Lil' Taste of Tucson BSV in Colorado

For those of us Blue Sky Velo members who were unable to make it down to the Tucson training camp this weekend (Michelle sadly wipes the rolling tear from her eye), Saturday-3/14 proved to be a great 'next best thing'. BSV cyclists galore gathered around the shop beginning at 9:45 with the urge to ride the Boulder County pavement. Some came for the friendships, some for the Raymond climb and still others for the dream of stopping in Lyons to drink another morning latte. No matter what the intent, all of us gathered in our BSV gear to checkout the newly posted 'A' and 'B' rides.Mike O. - checkout that arm strength

Brad - keeping the legs warmed up

Michelle & Jenny - chattin' up the members before the ride
Self Portrait - Angie was a good sport
The crew prior to departure
The group left promptly at 10am and rode towards Lyons. Members took their turn pulling and sitting in the pack. When Jenny and I dropped back from the front, the group along side us seemed to go on forever! It was great to see such a big crowd out representing. When the ride arrived in Lyons we all turned left to do a 'nana fruit loop. Some of us continued to Raymond and others rode back thru Lyons. This ride definitely had something for everyone.

nice write-up!

yes, bikes can go that fast... and as i also found out friday night, if you accidentally un-clip on a track bike, you are going down. quickly.
