First "Kelley Acres" Ride of '10

The flag usually sets the tone to start the "Kelley Acres" rides. This year it is tattered and torn from the insane winter months.
Today was the break through training ride we've been waiting for. A beautiful, sunny and warm day greeted 10 riders who braved the first "Kelley Acres" 4.5hr ride of the year. With lots of endurance miles lost due to the brutal weather we finished the day with lots of hope, even though it was quite painful at the end!
We headed to out on a traditional loop to High Rock and back through Catoctin Mountain Park to Frederick and back over the ridge.
The best part of the ride was the chemistry of the group. No egos today. Everyone worked well together. There were a few spirited moments but the purpose of the ride remained priority, to gain some valuable, long, lost endurance.
A few shoutouts are in order to the girls... one to Christine F. Nate Wilson's pick to win the Women's Cat 1/2 race next week at the Jeff Cup. I shared my pb & j with her so maybe she'll have a little mercy next weekend.

The other shout goes to 2009 "Kelley Acres" Cross Podium Candy- Miss Guided

This is where I would put the picture of Heidi posing in the manger scene on Raven Rock Road. It was voted down.
This is a nice replacement. Heidi post ride on the Harley Police Bike
Parking on the grass is an option again! And it's green!!
Thanks to everyone that came out. It was a great day!

We're Back!

Nobody was interested in taking the flyover away so Fast Freddie and I decided it would be fun to take the g-cart for a spin. We got a little hung up.
FF was using the rocking method to dislodge from the platform
This was the dismount
Tuesday Night Worlds started this week. Dennis and Jimbo of AVC showed up ready to roll-kit, helmet and shoes. Host for the evening is Lumpy-Twizzlers and all...

We realized later he was trying to make sure everyone had enough energy to keep up with him. The man has worked hard this winter and will be testing the legs at Jeff Cup in Charlottesville next weekend.
Loving the sunset at Kelley Acres. Finally!

It's been a wierd winter with no real organized outdoor rides from "Kelley Acres". It's been strange but there is alot going on .

The Speed Shop was rocking all winter. This weekend we had alot of last minute riders going after the "Top Dog" Winter Time Trial Competition sponsored by Raw Revolution. This is a great tune up for a GamJams Throwdown p/b Cutaway Clothing.

We were fortunate enough to have the Don and John show stop by last week. As you saw from previous posts, nothing will stop them from getting their training in. It's nice they work together.
