What’s up HCC!

We had a good group on today’s short but sweet ride. There was 22 riders that rolled out of Hercules at about 9:15 am. It was good to see Thiago, Felipe, Kenny, Darryl, and Dong on the ride, great riding with y’all today! Glad y’all were able to make it!

The pace started out nice and mild all the way to Alhambra and Bear Creek. The pace picked up going up the Three Bears as the usual hammer heads roared up the hills! The bears never really gets easy, but everyone did pretty well.

The fun of course started on SPDR! The pain train pushing through the rolling hills were met with some massive headwinds on some sections, but didn’t stop us from going fast!

As we returned back to Hercules, most of us headed to Powder Keg where we enjoyed pub food and libations like coffee, beer, or even a Bloody Mary.

While at Powder Keg we discussed our first annual Pot Luck BBQ which will be on a Sunday, the 24th of August. So please save the date! More details to follow so stay tuned!

Thanks again to everyone who came out to ride today! We have our Mtb ride tomorrow, so if you own a Mtb, let’s hit the dirt! If we don’t see y’all tomorrow, then see y’all on next week’s ride! We are doing some epic climbing up the two walls, South Park and Centennial so don’t miss out!

Below our some photos from today’s ride. Enjoy!
