tuesday is bruise-day

daylight savings time switches this weekend. i'm not sure if it switches "on" or "off", but i do know it's "spring ahead" and that we get extra daylight time in the evening. the other thing i know is that extra daylight time in the evening means the start of The Tuesday Night Ride:

The Tuesday Night Ride
FakeRacing at its finest
Departing from The Bicycle Chain Durham
Twice up Mount Sinai, sprint finish on Old-NC 10
Tuesdays 5:30 pm

[unlike the guys from Fort Garry, we don't make new flyers for every ride]

it goes like this: everyone rolls out together, things get kinda tempo-y, then (d)evolves into a race-type situation. there are attacks, breakaways, chase groups, drama, suffering, sprinting. no actual bruising on this ride, but it sometimes hurts and rhymes. i'm lobbying to keep things civil for the first few weeks so that we'll regroup periodically after accelerations and everyone can get a good workout and do some quality fake racing.

come out and give it a try.

sounds like fun. Hopefully I'll make it with a friend or two week after next (and now and again). I'll be the one in the back.
