Another great Tuesday ride in the books. Perfect Wisconsin summer weather. Almost 15 bikes or so. Its this cool sunny weather that makes me happy to live here. Lots of sun, low humidity and the bugs were not that bad. While I can understand how some move out for the winters here its tough for me to justify not being here for the summer\fall. And the only thing better that a Wisco summer is a Wisco fall. And don't get me wrong, Im a winter guy so I do look forward to a Wisco winter.
The groups are so much bigger when we stay on home turf that is Evergreen Park. Its been decided we will just ride here now every Tuesday ongoing. It gets a little boring for guys like me that have done a few thousand laps around this place but we just keep changing it up a little to keep it interesting.
This is really a very nice park. I think us locals take it for granted at times and we shouldn't. Ive been riding here for over 20 years now. Ive been the directer from 2002 to 2007 (not real sure on the exact years)for the MTB race the local club put on in this park from 1994 to 2015.
Still, even tho its a 6 minute ride (with ebike on turbo) from my house I still don't go here as much as one would think. But I have been here more this summer now that I have more time.
Its a city park and is used by many user groups. In fact the bike portion is probably the lesser of all the groups. Maybe one up from the CC skiers who need snow. But when there is snow its machine groomed. Hikers, picnics and such. So a lot go's on here.
Moving on... just got word that the short sleeve jerseys will show up next week. And have a date for the long sleeve set for Aug 22nd. So there's that. Personally I just bought one short sleeve. I'll get another on the next order, maybe a long sleeve but I really don't wear a long sleeve jersey as opposed to just throwing on arm warmers....
That's about it for this week. I do have a little report about my new gravel bike coming many next week. Just some thoughts as I now have been on it enough to form an opinion.
