Starting from the Wilco in Kelso, WA five Cowlitz Racing Team members decided to brave the weather and go for a ride. We (Nick M., Jeremy, Zach, Clay, and Pawel) rode North toward Toledo over rolling hills. Nick ended up leaving us at the end of Barnes dr., great riding with you Nick.
Once we were in Toledo the group started working on single and double paceline drills. There were some moments where we were moving very smoothly and others where the group seemed uncoordinated. All in all, it was fun to work on some race techniques with the team.
We ended up stopping in Castle Rock and one of our favorite drive through coffee shops for some much needed fuel (caffeine). After fueling up we took it easy back to Kelso. Clay ended up having a catastrophic failure on one of his pedals and had to pedal home using just one pedal. Jeremy made it back to Kelso but ended up getting a flat before he got home!
It was fun getting out and riding with everyone. Looking forward to a great year and lots of group rides.
Mileage winner: Jeremy (68.88 miles)
