Festive day 3 brought us sugar/carb-filled stomachs and an opportunity to ride a two-a-day. The Bloomington Cycle and Fitness race team had a 10am ride planned so a core crew of #festive500 hopefuls set out for an early ride to slog some K’s with the rain still on the roads. We didn’t really get rained on that day but the winds were nasty and the roads were wet. That meant you were either pulling in the wind or eating gravel, dirt and some random form of moisture from the tire in front of ya… nasty but still fun riding with all your bros!
There are definite + / – ‘s to joining team rides during the Festive.
Many bodies to tuck in behind on Festive day 3
On Festive day 3 they don’t have 227k in their legs
They don’t speak in K’s
They don’t wanna talk about the #festive500
They think we are all idiots
Special Guests: Chris Daniels, Mike Wolford, Aaron Fader, John Wyatt Danenberger, Matt Wilcoski, Kevin Gann, Rick Lindquist, Ken Hoepker, Gerrit Sinclair, Mark Tank, Jon Kiner, Brad Reid
Today was a bonus day, a sneak out for a quick 60k before we head to Forsyth, IL, for a Keller Christmas celebration with the family. Riding almost the whole Constitution Trail I only saw a few runners braving the temps and winds. But of course I still ran in to the Mayor of the Constitution Trail, Mr. Green Merino wool sweater himself Mike Wolford. And our conversation went a little something like this.
Me: Hey Mikeeeeeeeeeey!
Me: Cold out here eh?
Me: Not many people out here today
Me: Alright buddy gonna get 60k and head home
Mike: Yup, gotta ride the whole CT, & rides away.
Me: Merry Christmas!
