Slow and Low

The simplicity of going out for an easy ride with no agenda is a welcome change this time of year.

Training and racing can become mentally exhausting, but a short ride with periodic stops for beverages changes all that. Plus its nice to consume more calories than you burn on a ride.

On the opposite end of the spectrum of the Slow and Low is the proposed Triple Threat. It would combine three staple rides for a small group of cyclists [tacoRIDE, TimeTrial, Monday Night Worlds] and make for a 220+ km day of biking. The idea has been tabled so now lets see if it happens.

  1. In what order , wouldn't Taco have to be last but then that would mean starting after MNW, sounds like a logistical nightmare. I can see Jim Crichton on A-Channel," An ambitious group of cyclists are competing in the Triple Threat today throughout Essex County, if you would like to participate all you need is a double disc TT bike, a case of domestique micro brews,a head lamp and some Tums.

  2. The Triple Threat looks like the perfect 'Shore 2 Shore' prep ride. Should be fun, assuming no rain!

  3. This is the rough breakdown of the Triple Threat. Looking to be held on the holiday of Aug.3. The TT or tacoRIDE will start in the morning, then just keep rolling from then on into Monday Night Worlds at 5:30 pm. Bring a cross bike, road bike, and of course the micro brews [I like where your head is at Nick].

    I would prefer that Anna Vlakos delivers this breaking news report rather then Jim Crichton.

  4. Sounds like a Triple Threat of saddle sores. You might want to pack a can of Axe spray as well.

    Low miles and fresh legs you say. That means Sean K is going to be a force. I expect he will make many bitches out of us come this day. May he have mercy on a few.

  8. Boys, where is the shore 2 shore leaving from. I want to take part! Also, there's a Kegger at my Cottage Saturday night. I can give you the details in the morning if you want to drink some beer!
