Here’s a recap of some bike week events I participated in. Sorry for the delay, but since the torrential downpours have ceased I’ve been taking advantage of the my short lived summer break. [I start a new job and summer classes within the week!]
Thursday : After my last final, I rushed down to the new Volker Velowerk’s spot for an alleycat. Rite when I showed up the race started, luckily it was simply enough so I didn’t need to gain my composure too much. We raced to SunFresh and back. If you got a 2 Liter of coke, you got a 5 minute time bonus. David J won the race and didn’t bother with the cola, he did buy a paper to prove he didnt cheat. ha! It was a quick and sweaty race. Britton [Volker Boss-man] is planning on the holding these types of races once or twice a month, so stay tuned for more details.
Friday: In the early evening, I stopped by bum island in Westport to kick it with some friendlies at the KC Bike Fed Mocktail Hour.
After a refreshing happy hour, Micale, Nikky, and I rode down to Volker Velowerk’s for KCSPRINTS. Unforuntadely for you all, I did not race so there are no new puking pictures to post. [ha!] I’m really stoked about this having a bike shop downtown again!![RIP ACME]
Saturday: BBQ Ride! We met for this humid and sweaty ride at The Roasterie Cafe in Brookside. We road to Rosedale BBQ. The food was great, I got the burnt ends…tender and a little fatty..yum! The sauce was a bit lacking, too thin and not enough spice. On our way back we stopped at the Crown Center Fountains to cool off.
Sunday: Bike Polo was kinda a fail. My brake was out of commish and Ryan had multiple tire mishaps, however the boys played a few matches.
Welp. Sorry for the longgg post. I’m off to enjoy the weather and work on my wheelie before KICKBALL!
ps i just got one of those flickr things, so you can check out more photos here.
