WWR Report: short sleeves

by on July 18, 2013

Eight women began the ride on Tuesday night–Cindy, me, Lisa, Juanita, TFF, Charlotte, Delilah and Prudence met at HQ as usual. What was unusual is Juanita’s wool jersey–she’s got the short-sleeved version of the Athena jersey–not a bad option for those who are kicking themselves for having missed out on the original order. Next step: custom embroidery that transforms the white stripe.

Outside the clubhouse, talk turned to the upcoming gravel road bike races during the Manitoba Sunflower Festival. Delilah may be interested…Cindy is definitely capable, but it is a race so she’s not up for it.  Lisa, barely recovered from illness, was not interested, but it is a race, so she’s up for it.  Everyone wants more info and, fortunately, the race bible has already been posted to the ABES blog:

    Does anyone know, is it the nice pavey-type gravel? Or the 2-inch-thick, “you-never-really-DID-like-your-two-front-teeth-anyway” kind, that the RM wrecks it with just when the road’s getting nice and bare…. ;)

  3. When you put it that way Julia…a ride sounds nice.

  4. Really Cindy? You are not doing the gravel grinder. I do have to work evenings, but was hoping to try completing the 50km portion. Not race, however ride! Interested…?! :)

    Anybody else…
