Sat DPRT Ride

Chilly start - 33 degrees but we warmed up as we got passed Old School - BT, Chip, Bill Hatch, AC, Big John and Barb W and myself had a nice ride up to Gurnee and back. A little spicey on the way back home after Independence Grove but a lovely morning. Tucci and Freddy joined us for coffee as they did solo rides - The Professional on the trail and Fa(s)t Freddy on the road. Don't you love Lake Forest Starbucks ..... not! (that is another story)

We took a long look at the bridge at 120 - still very slick so be careful! I did notice the sign above - a bit small when you are riding 20+ mph.

Hope to see you out this week ... weather permitting.

DeKalb Cyclocross

The cyclocross race in DeKalb yesterday was, as usual, a fun one. A tough course with off camber steep turns made even more challenging by the previous days rain. I raced Masters 40+ and am certain that I came in ahead of at least one other racer. I started with about 50 others, so it was a very big field. Here's a shot of me climbing a short steep stretch:

I stayed for the next two races and grabbed a few photos. Here's one of Bill in his first cyclocross race, looking fast:

And one showing his barrier crossing technique:

There were other creative ways to get over the barriers:
