Fastest Tuesday Night to DATE! - Avg: 32.7km/h!!!

The Crew: Me, Patryk, Jeff, Thi, Dave G., Bill, Bruce, Alex, and Last but not the slowest... Mr. Fantastic

Camera Crew: 2K

Video And Pics:

Well, it started with a call from Steve. "Where are you guys?" Ended up he had met at the usual spot at the Don Jail. He made it to the crit section just in time only behind us about 10mins. That's pretty impressive. To understand the effort he had to put out to catch up to us. Just try riding from Broadview and Gerrard to Main and Gerrard in 10 Mins. That pretty much sums it up!. Great work Steve.

I suggested we warm up and let him catch up, but it seemed that the riding speed just settled at 35km/h+ - 40km/h. Seemed like everyone had a turn at the front of the group. Hope you all had a good time. Little slick on the Crit Course, but the rain held off. Just imagine how much faster it would have been if it was completely dry!

Special thanks to 2K, who made it out by herself to cheer us on and ring the cow bell!

Bill, Steve, points well taken. I think the issue is that when you're at the front, the pressure is on and you want to make sure that people at the back are not being held up. I know I feel like that at the front. I just know my limits(It's taken a long time to understand), and try not to got max on a pull. We'll try to harness the energy next tuesday:)

Cool?

Need you both to stay entertained so you keep showing up. Wouldn't be the same without you.

Nice!

Bill needs his warm up, we know now:-) I think some of us secretly try to not allow you to warm up in hopes to keep you from pushing the pace, cause when you are warmed up, my legs are on FIRE!

It's humbling to ride with you and Steve.

See you next week.
