Colorado Calling

Team Select Ag3r traveled to Boulder Colorado to revisit last years climbing trip to the Rockies. Brew Crew was escorted by veterans Kirk, Rich and Ray. Diedre and Sam tried to keep a straight face as we tried our best to look good as serious cyclists in higher altitude.
Strava can tell the story best however I would be remiss not to expound on some of the hi-lites.
Somewhere up to Ward a rider was found carrying his bike barefoot. Not recommended.
The Gold Mill Hill climb cat hc reduced one of the riders to lap up spilled espresso off the table with his tongue. Not recommended.
Cyclists order pizza by the pound.
Often muttered was "Hannah where's my....Bring me a....WTF.....
Next trip a mechanic will be invited, and that will be for one specific individual. All others are good to go.
Sushi will have to be flown in to town in advance.
Directions will be inked for those who don't follow instructions.
Frozen Man will be summoned to clarify all the stories and keep it to a minimum.
Trout fishing is for weenies.

I need a caption for this photo.

These three kept me up at night with all the partying.

ITT Season rolls to a close

Sunday, Diane got up with me very early and we travelled together to Presque Isle in Erie PA. (Super Fan Alert) Bands of clouds brought rain and wind during the whole drive, the temperature dropped from a routine 80's to 56 degrees. When dawn gave way to daylight to our surprise the sun came out over lake Erie.
With a low head wind and basked in sun I started out. A good effort produced yet another PR for me at Erie for the 12.5 mile contest.
This year I PR'd the 5 mile, 10 mile, 12.5 mile and 20 mile ITT events.
