It’s a pretty cool event to watch, and I’ve even volunteered there in the past. I didn’t plan on being there this year, but I’m all about helping out the local cycling scene. It should be a good time, and hopefully I won’t be too busy patching people up when they crash.
Because yes, they do crash.
Since I can’t seem to get enough roadie action, the crew and I will be heading to Uptown Charlotte (the middle of the city for all you non-locals) to watch yet another criterium…
This event is pretty cool, even if you don’t care much for roadies. Everyone who’s anyone in the local cycling scene will be there watching, including quite a few out-of-towners. I even heard that D-Wayne might be coming down this way. I’ll buy him an RC Cola and a Moon Pie if he does indeed show up.
We’ll drink beer, heckle the pros, and socialize our collective asses off. And if there are any crashes, I won’t have to fix anyone.
Since my Saturday will be full of cycling stuff without much actual riding, I’ll try my best to make up for it on Sunday. There is a volunteer appreciation event up at
which will celebrate the “Grand Opening” of the latest section of trail. While it’s not my favorite place to ride,
I’ll most likely be there. I mean, that
place is fun and all, but I’m a little bored with super-fast, buffed out
racetrack style trails. Perhaps I can
still enjoy myself somehow. You know,
because I’ll be on my bike. Lake Norman State Park
In other news, it looks like the UCI listened to me(and everyone else) and decided to make a change...for now.
Have a good weekend.
