The first 50 riders to arrive will receive this Hans Kellner original ”FUCI Approved Frame” sticker for their machine. You’ll be able to spot the Pros as they wear this badge of honor in the peleton. Did you spend enough money? Did the UCI get their cut? Now you can show everyone that you’re a part of the club too! Do not be fooled by imitations, insist on the original, the Hans Kellner FUCI.
Thanks Martha and ActionWipes. It looks like there’s enough here for everyone. Lord knows we will need them!
If you’ve been checking this out and want to be a part of it but can’t because you’re injured, your coach says you need to take time off, you’re in between bikes or whatever, we need a few people to man the feed zones on the day of the ride. I also need a couple of responsible adults to drive a box truck with bikes back from the BBQ.
If you’d like to hang out and help, go here to sign up so we have your info: http://springclassic.wordpress.com/registration/
People are asking what do you mean by “chartered coach” to take us home? The main question is “Are they school buses”?
No, not a yellow and black, bouncy, bumpy, loud thing. THIS is what they are:
Bring your awesome mountain bike videos or whatever to watch on the way home or a pillow to crash out. It’s up to you!
Kelty and Ultimate Direction have added their names to our growing list of sponsors! This is great. Check out the 60th anniversary Kelty Wing backpack (above) that is up for grabs as well as the ultimate Direction Grind hydration pack (below). Thank you to Kelty and Ultimate Direction for making our fun ride even better!
This just in from Mike’s Bikes: “We have a challenge for our brothers and sisters in the Nor-Cal bike industry: Get as many riders as you can to come out wearing your colors at the SF Spring Classics, and we’ll give everyone on your crew a tasty 22oz of Santa Cruz Ale Works Oatmeal Stout at the finish line. We don’t care whether you’re a bike shop, clothing or parts manufacturer, or a frame builder; if you have the biggest crew of Classics riders finishing in your jersey then you get the sweet stout reward from Mike’s. Short course or long course, it’s all good with us. Sign up now and we’ll see you on the start line.”
Mike’s Bikes gets it done. That’s why you’re seeing their stores everywhere?
…is there anything in particular that you really love to see at aid stations/feed zones?
Realistic suggestions only please, we’re not going to be able to afford to offer Cristal or hand peeled shrimp and oyster stations (this year).
If there is something in particular that you think is a great item for the feedzones, we’d like to hear about it.
