Weekend Roll: Road Season is Finally Here
Race season officially arrived in NYC this past weekend with the squad picking up three top ten finishes in the CRCA Club Series season opener. We followed it up with what Jacob Fetty from Cycle-Smart prescribes as a "F-U-N" endurance ride. So with our spirits high from Saturday the squad rolled deep for a coffee focused endurance ride. Keeping coach happy and while keeping ourselves happy meant one thing: pedaling bikes and drinking coffee. A Nyack coffee shop checked both of those boxes. High on yesterday's first CRCA Central Park race, the squad is chomping at the bit for next Saturday's CRCA Grant's Tomb State Crit Championship. See you all next weekend for the first crit of the year!
