End of an Era

I did the team ride last night. It was a special cyclocross training ride; we went through just about every orchard, two-track, golf cart path, and goat path in Kent County. Aside from a few crashes, a good time was had by all. I was on the Quiring with cross tires. Two other single speeds were on the ride, as well as a handful of 1x9's.

Good times.

We then adjourned to the Farmstead, where tasty beverages were consumed.

As good as the night was, it was also somewhat bittersweet as it was my last Founder's team ride. I have accepted a job in Portland, OR. I start on October 1. I'll ride with the Founder's folks whenever I get the chance, but my days of the regular Tuesday rides are over.

Not much will change on the blog, except hopefully the pictures will display more interesting terrain. Blog updates might be a bit slow as I will be driving out to Portland. I do hope to get a few rides in along the way, and I'll update as time and connectivity permit.

You never know what the future might hold...

Joe- Too bad that you can't make a "slight detour" and come join us for cross vegas. If I don't see you before, have a safe drive!!!!

i promise we will all take good care of dan (your BBFF) while you are gone.

you are going to be missed, as a friend, riding (waay ahead of me) companion, and of course sponge bath partner. i wish you great success, and hope Becky is able to get out there before SHE starts dropping me on the Tuesday night rides in your absence.

see you Saturday.
