riding bicycles in hartford
About ten hardy Hartford riders showed. The race was a simple A-to-B (hence the name) from Keney to Goodwin Park. One rider may have disappeared en route. Not sure what happened there. Much props to Orion & Matt for putting another aspect of bike scene back on the mean streets of Hartford.By the way, what's up with all the trash in Keney Park? I showed up early to chill at the park, but it was like visiting the dump.I did catch a bit of a cricket game before the bike drag race. I think the Hartford team was getting beat by a team from Toronto, but I can't say for sure as I don't know how scoring even happens.
Bummed that I couldn't make it, I was working my second Sunday in a row. Glad it happened nonetheless. Keney is such a great park, and it really sucks that people take advantage of its quiet and secluded spots for illegal dumping. That makes me angry.
So, who won?
Bummed I missed it, hopefully another soon!
@Brendan: Orion posted the results on his blog. I can tell you that the top three finishers formed a team-like peloton just after Main & Albany, and both Ryan and Dave deserved first, especially Dave who casually rocked jeans and a single speed. And one guy was eaten by a CHUD.
Yeah, but it looks like you rocked first place on a mountain bike. Congratulations!
