Warm up weekend

Here comes the melt down. Goodbye gravel, hello tarmac (at least for a week or two). Temps look like they'll peak in the 40's this weekend. You'll want fenders if you've got them, wishing I still had my Cronus instead of my Madone for these rides.

Regardless, you'll want a road bike this weekend, or your CX bike with slick skinny tires. This weeks edition will leave at 9:30am from Jones Bros. Cupcakes at Aksarben Village, come early if you want a pre-ride espresso. From there we'll head south on the Keystone and swing by Shim's house about 10am. So if you don't want the mega miles you can meet the Aksarben group at Shim's. We'll stop in Ashland or Louisville, more likely Louisville for re-fuel. As always, we'll end with coffee talk, most likely at Jones Bros.

As always, this is not a no drop ride. You are responsible for you. Water, food and flat repair essentials are your responsibility.

Here's the route Ashland-Louisville 90

Just get some clip-ons - we have them in stock. Besides, your Cronus fenders did absolutely nothing for the people on your wheel, anyway.

I disagree, clip-ons are selfish fenders, they only protect the rider. Full wrap fenders protect those behind you much better, even better if you have mud flaps.

I do have SKS clip-ons though.

dude ... I rode behind you last year. did you?

mw said...

i can't imagine anyone slow enough to ride behind me...

mud flaps are the ticket to extending the function of the sks fenders, very nice.
