Hope everyone that did the fondo had a great time!

This year was extremely fast, probably because of the clear weather and no wind.

We had a mixed team of 8 (6 men 2 women) and was going for the mixed team win.

Sent 3 of our fastest guys out to smash it, they rolled through at 3hrs35mins.

The remaining 3 of us supported the 2 women and paced them to the line and we crossed at 4hr12min.

It was a great plan and we took the podium for the mixed team category! It was really awesome to end the season with a win at Whistler Gran Fondo

amazon has them for 399 free shipping and it's brand new. I'll get one when my health spending account at work refills in the new year.

Got a 172.5 ultegra but after getting a bike fit, a 168.5 or a 165 is ideal. Need to either swap with someone or get a new one

I may have a 170mm ultegra crank lying around at home that I can swap you. I'll have to check once I get home

EDIT: On another note, if the Garmin 520 is $399 CAD + taxes , you can score an 820 for roughly the same amount at ~$450 CAD delivered from eBay They send it via USPS too, so highly unlikely that get dinged

At least you got some cash out of it to help with the new bike!
I gave a buddy 2 parts bikes today, thinking he could use the parts or even build them back up. When I got there, he threw them straight into the scrap metal dumpster! That was kind of annoying, as there were some good parts on there that I could have used down the line. Well, lesson learned, not going to give him any more bikes, I rather donate them to OCB, at least I know they'll recycle the parts.

Ribble bro

$329 plus 10% off code GARMIN10 free ship.

I found that I would never look at the maps. Most ppl I know went from the 810 to 510 after a while bc of the same reason.

^ It's been going on for months.

1) i'm guilty for saying I haven't stopped for every single stop sign when it comes to riding.
2) last guy should be saying car back but he/she is usually a newbie and doesn't yell out or get passed down to the front.

That's why I tend to ride alone or no more than one or two friends who generally have good road manner. I fucking hate people who insist on riding side by side having to chat up or jerk each other off while on their bikes. Like, I get cycling is social, but so is drinking, and when you act up you're gonna get knocked the fuck out eventually.

Riding alone just doesn't do it for me anymore. I thought I accomplished well doing century rides & triple crown etc but I didn't know how or where to push myself as a newbie. Wasn't until after riding with a group that I realized I needed to learn how to draft, ride faster, push proper watts etc.

Again, guilty as a newbie and being in a riding group totally opened my eyes.

^ Have you club shopped? I've been riding with the same group since last year. It was fine then when I had 0 skills and was just new to the sport but I feel that its about time to find a group that will challenge & take my skills to new heights.
