Last weekend I was down in Dekalb, Illinois on behalf of Salsa Cycles to support North Central Cyclery . That sounds a lot like work and technically it was. However, I try to find time to ride whenever I go on work trips. Makes work not seem as much like work. This past weekend was no exception as I got two good rides in over 3 days. Not bad.
Saturday morning started out cool and early. Our group consisted of 20+ folks and then splintered into a few different groups. I had a blast. Rode pretty hard. It felt good. I am pretty sure I was the only guy on the ride carrying both a digital and film camera. No sympathy though as the tough guy award goes to Andy who rode his single speed Mukluk Ti 38 miles to the event, followed by the gravel ride, and then rode home! Regardless, I think carrying both cameras was worth it though as I got some good shots, at least I think I did.
A few folks that were on the ride expressed an interest in purchasing some prints. Let me just say that Tobie and I working on something pretty cool and you will see some stuff soon in both color and black & white that I will print here in my home and ship off too Dekalb for pick up. Just stay tuned. Both NCC and I will announce how to order prints when it is all ready.
Until then, here are a few pics from the ride.
Yeah, it was really that good. I know I posted a quick pic Monday and said Thank you boys. But I’m going to say it again. Thank you boys for the great morning.
