I wasn’t feeling it today, so I did the JV loop. Not the A (aka for this post Varsity). Not the B (aka for this post Frosh/Soph). The idea was to get Cronk to go JV with me – turning right at the school, but going straight instead of the Varsity route – then, make it over the wall. But, he was feeling frisky and put himself on Varsity.
In his own words:
“I fumbled on 4th and Wall, doh!”
I cruised to meet the Frosh/Soph squad.
We were chatting and laughing when the first Varsity rider came screaming by.
He will go un-named.
I’m bringing it up – again – because…
… from the re-group to the bike trail is DMZ (de-militarized zone)!
Why? Because it’s 50 mph decent, if you tuck it, and there are 6 stop lights… obviously the lead guys can probably make a light and the tail end won’t. In light of last weekend’s Roger’s Cup, a tribute to a rider who was killed by running a red light on the end of a group, we need to take care of each other.
Am I clear? Do you all get it?
DMZ is from the re-group to the bike trail, then every man for himself.
As for the Frosh/Soph, JV, Varsity designations… if you are easily making the re-group with the Frosh/Soph group, starting turning right and doing the JV loop. Once you’ve got that, move on up to Varsity.
Until next week…
