This looks like enough WCS gear from Ritchey to shave ~2lbs off of my road bike. Think you can put any of it to use? You’ll get to ride with about six or eight of the guys from their crew too, they’re coming to throw down. Better bring your A game! Thanks Ritchey!
We’ve got just five days to go before we do this! It’s over 2/3 full and you better sign up now or miss out on all the fun! You snooze, you lose!
Registration is easy and the buffet is totally worth it! This is shaping up to be awesome.
We’ve just heard that the bean man himself will be rolling out with us and he will be bringing delicious De La Paz coffee to give away at the end as well. Now that’s something you can use! I’ve seen people choose bags of De La Paz coffee over carbon forks at the end of an event and it’s no surprise once you’ve tasted it. It’s not just coffee, it’s art in a small paper bag. Thank you De La Paz!
…but I’ll try to get some more updates posted today and tomorrow!
Until then, if you ever ride with anyone named Allen or Steve this may be handy:
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.
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!
