The Saturday Ride 1/25

Three Happy Cows Team Ride

What is it about a group of cyclists riding shoulder to shoulder in matching team kits that oozes coolness? The guys get together once a month during winter for a little camaraderie, 'gut' checks and to build fitness. You gotta keep the sword from getting too dull. Mainly we are just a bunch of guys who love to ride and race together. No matter where the fitness is the team ride is always good for the soul.

A big thanks to CLIF BAR for taking care of energy needs.

A big thanks to The Bike Route for putting us on the best equipment. Several "Rules" being broken here.

The new kits are on the way. We are super excited about our new title sponsor Three Happy Cows. Makers of delicious yogurt. Coming to shelves near you very soon!

Regroup after the climb out of West Fork on 170. 

Cycling is such a unique sport. It's almost hard to explain the passion we have for it to someone who doesn't ride.

A group of 5 broke free and crushed 170. Dropping into Devils Den State Park. 

Not as much need for two bottles this time of year. Makeshift storage.

Airplane wings or handlebars? Steve is capturing those 'free' watts. The Cervelo S3 might just be the total package.

Is this a new design from fi'zik?


The switchback climb out of Devil's Den is a beautiful thing.

 What is it about switchbacks and cycling.

I think it just makes going uphill more interesting.


A look back.

The next 12 miles from the park to Winslow is tough. Rolling gradual uphill usually into the wind.

One of my favorite views. Everything opens up just before crossing 540.

The fellas starting to close.

On the march.

While it's no sidewalk cafe, the boyz take care of things at the last refuel stop (Winslow gas station). I wonder what the cashier thinks of us? Grown men, spandex lycra, helmets, sunglasses, tap shoes, bicycles...yeah it's hard to explain.

The run into town had spirit with 4 city limit signs up for grabs.

Jason B finally makes the cut!

Another iPhone fail! 71 miles about 4 hours of saddle love. A classic route.

Let's Eat! We finally tried Kosmos Greekafe. It totally surprised us. Check them out!

Chocolate cake! Let's Eat!

It is the little things...What a day.
