I'd opted for the 90 mile route (you can choose from 50, 25, and even 10), along with a few of my friends, fellow editors, some industry colleagues, and Big George and Nike Windrunner White And Gold his entourage. Who was going to "go for it?" Who was nursing a hangover from a few too many the night before? Where did the KOMs start? Who had Nike Long Sleeve Black
That's exactly what it felt like rolling into the Velodrome for the 3rd Annual Bicycling Magazine Fall Classic Sunday morning, like all these readers from as far away as Brazil had come to visit and see who we are, where we live, and importantly the roads we ride.

And we fell into each other's company with the ease of a group of friends huddled around the kitchen late into a party, cracking jokes as we started to crank up the pace a little in the final stretches of the ride. At some point, the road kicked up sharply and I started drifting back as a number of strong men in our pack surged forward. I felt a hand on my back.
"This is a really beautiful route. It flows so nicely." "This is no joke. You don't have giant mountains here, but it's never flat. you're always going up or going down." "I haven't seen more than three cars all day." "You guys have a really great cycling community here."
Judging by all the smiles and story swapping and "see you next year's" I saw and heard around the Velodrome late into the afternoon, I would say that mission has been accomplished. Till next year.
good legs, who did not, who was going to sit in and who would work? As the miles ticked over past meadows shadowed by murmurations of starlings, pastures of bleating goats, and windy black roads Nike Jackets Windbreaker Womens
The Classic is one of those races that's not a race unless you want it to be a race. Or something like that. It's timed and there are designated KOM/QOM segments you can win prizes for conquering in top speed. But it's also a rolling social scene that sees the Bicycling editors and some industry guests, as well as a VIP or two (this year George Hincapie was along for the ride) chitchatting over homemade waffles and Nutella at stops along the rolling bucolic Nike Red Pullover Hoodie
You sweep up a bit, clear the clutter, and put out the good dishes to show your best side. In return, you get to enjoy your guests enjoying your home. You share a bit of yourself through your surroundings. They get to know you a little better. You have the chance to grow closer.
weaving through falling golden leaves, the race talk gave way to reverie.
At the end of the day, that push (and a couple of miles glued firmly to his wheel) wasn't enough to keep me from losing contact with the leaders in the final 8 mile stretch, which was just fine. I'd ridden well and climbed well and when push came to shove (pun intended), I was less concerned about rolling through the Velodrome first (not that that was going to happen in this lifetime anyway), as I was showing those with whom I've shared so many virtual miles a tiny slice of where I call home and where my heart lives and breathes and trains.
Home is where the heart is. And mine is right here."You've been working too hard upfront all day to let them get away now," a voice commanded. And with that I got a very robust and well aimed push up to the wheels that were breaking away. I turned my head, debating whether to thank the mystery pusher or tell him I could hold my own, thanks, when I saw the black BMC kit out of the corner of my eye. A push from George? I laughed and decided I would graciously accept it.
