Virginia Beach Wheelmen met at Premier Fitness (a cycling supporter) in Harbor View for a Saturday afternoon team ride. The idea was to get some good hard efforts (lead outs, pursuits, and sprints), then just ride and rack up some miles. With the addition of John Gray to the team, this was the first time all 6 of us have ridden together. Mike is getting back on the bike after taking time off for the fire academy. Overall it was a good ride.
I don't know what it was. Maybe it was the residents of Harbor View, or maybe it was the fact that six guys, all dressed exactly alike were out on bikes. But we got friendly honks, waves, patients and just overall very friendly attitudes while we were training. And most of the time we were two or three people wide.
Sometimes even taking up the entire road. Of course this road is brand new and not yet used my many people.
Very good team training. Looking forward to the race season.
