So, it was a just a little chilly for our First Ride of Spring. Instead we spent the morning test riding fat bikes and then recovered from those efforts with made-to-order omelettes. (Spring training, even when cut short, is tough work, after all.)
Thankfully, Mother Nature acted more kindly towards us this past weekend, when our Saturday Morning Group Ride officially kicked off for the 2016 season.
The sun was shining down on our riders as we gathered in the Plaza del Lago parking lot.
A great group of riders was in attendance. Some were chomping at the bit after another long Chicagoland winter. Others started out stronger than their 2015 season performance, after training with us all winter in our CompuTrainer rides.
It was a beautiful beginning to a new cycling season. We look forward to continuing to ride with you – going farther and faster each week as we progress individually and as a group.
Our Saturday Morning Group ride is beginner-friendly. If you’re new to riding, arrive early next Saturday morning to introduce yourself and check out our Group Ride Rules >>
2016 is going to be a great year, thanks to all of you who make our group rides so awesome!
