The Saturday Ride 5/31

A smaller group showed up to ride this Saturday. The route was interesting. We did the easier version by going counter clockwise. The tempo riding started early though. Some of the guys cutting it short were pushing the pace. The humidity is off the charts but it wasn't hot so it didn't feel that bad.

Beware, there is more than one Banana Bandit in the bunch. Even the law is not off limits.


South on 71 with a water stop at the Winslow gas station. 

 Turned on to Sunset Rd. a long gradual climb.

Quick regroup.

Up top on the ridge before going down Crawl Hill.

Gustavo G is super stoked about fellow Colombian Nairo's recent choice of kit color (pink). 

Headed towards the recently discovered Thunder Rd. 

The clouds and green color contrasts were awesome this morning. Great ride with a solid group. 

We tried the new restaurant Farmer's Table. Lots of locally sourced products and Arkansas themes.

The place was packed but we were seated quickly and the eats were really good.  I went with the bratwurst. 

Let's Eat! Super tasty beans & cornbread. We will be back for sure.
