Today was Hunter Smith's 2nd annual citizen's 'cross ride. Super fun with riders of all abilities. It was a 'no one gets dropped' affair and Hunter had it dialed...from the meeting point to the Gatorade he had stashed for us along the way to the party he is known to throw afterwards with beer and brats as the draw.
The ride is one I am super familiar with albeit with more roads connecting things. I use parts of this 'course' as a principal training route throughout the summer. This is a super crappy rendition of the ride....so do not follow this map as I did this by hand, not by GPS:
The ride took us over some of the classic haunts including the (in)famous Koppenberg climb used in Boulder Racing's classic Koppenberg race...
The group was fantastic and all had a great time. Webber and I needed to separate from the group apres Kopp climb and get back to our families wherein we proceeded to annihilate each other doing tempo work and urban trials/messenger racing all the way up Broadway to get back in time for wife/sitter relief. We made it. All in all, a great way to spend a Sunday.
Long dirt slogs...
