So, today was Day 1 of the Rapha “Festive 500” …
I hit the road at 5:45am with a nice sized crew of Spokesmen to get a few miles in. In all honesty, I do not plan to ride 500 kilometers in the next 8 days, but it was a good idea to have rattling around in my brain as the sun came up. Great weather (high 20’s) relatively speaking, and the roads were pretty clean.
The best part of the ride (aside from bc buying a round at Starbucks for anyone who rode in) was finally meeting Denny Yunk, who I have known via email and bike circles for years, but had never met. He is as cool as laid back as I had hoped, and his commuter bike is a work of art.

Spokesmen ride again tomorrow at 7:00am… we’ll see if I add to my 2010 mileage, or catch up on a little sleep instead for Christmas Eve.
