I’m not really grooving on the Exeter Weekly World Championship of Ultra Hard Riding lately. Mostly because sometimes I don’t want to go wackie nunu hard. And I’m riding my cross bike to/from work with some regularity.
ANYWAY, coworker DONALD (pictured below, when he took my phone and decided to play with this thing called “Twitter”):

AND IT WAS FUN. It was about 20% easier than Exeter. Which means that my vision didn’t get fuzzy, I was able to speak the entire time, I never felt like I was going to poop my pants, and I didn’t get really cold once the ride ended.
Wait. Why do I do the Exeter ride with regularity? When I list all of those things…it doesn’t sound that fun.
However, it was fun to be totally spun out in my 48×12 going up the beach, with a tail wind, at 35 mph.
So if you’re looking for a reasonably lively ride, this is a good alternative to sitting on the wheel of the Worlds Master TT champion.
And Curtis Bolvin was there, and his legs look REALLY GOOD. We’re talking Roger-level sexiness, here.
