Underwear Ride 
21st-Nov-2013 04:29 pm
Велосипедисты, трай-атлисты и те кто начинает ездить на спортивном велосипеде. К вашему вниманию:

Велоклуб Ridley Masters Cycling Team спонсируемый Reality Bikes и Dutch Monkey Doughnuts объявили о третьей ежегодной поездке "Underwear Ride". Хотя название поездки звучит довольно вызывающе, групповая вело-поездка не имеет ничего общего с нудистскими массовыми вело-парадами или поездками в нижнем или спальном белье. Просто для того чтобы учавствовать в поездке надо принести один пакет нижнего белья (или пакет носок) в сбор для нуждающихся детей Forsyth County- благородная цель! Поездка пройдёт по двум альтернативным маршрутам 25 миль и 50 миль. Оба маршрута проложены по живописным дорогам Forsyth and Cherokee Counties. Обе поездки "no-drop" т.е. скорость меньше 18 миль в час и отстающих ждут. В прошлом году лидер группы на 25 миль была национальный чемпион и капитан команды Луис Гарно - Шерил Фуллер-Муллер. Лидеры группы на 50 миль - команда Ридлей Мастерс. В поездке так же учавстовал наш Атлантский про-континентал велосипедист Сергей Тветцов (команда Jelly-Belly). Для тех кто никогда не учавствовал в поездках в пелотоне, the Underwear Ride предоставлет возможность попробовать ехать в пелотоне не на большой скорости. К сожалению поездка не для тех кто имеет горный или гибридный велосипед.

После поездки, спонсор Dutch Monkey Doughnuts предоставит кофе и донатс. Поездка стартует 15 Декабря, wheels down at 9:00am sharp (rain or shine). Адрес:

3074 Ronald Regan Blvd.
Cumming, GA 30041

"К сожалению поездка не для тех кто имеет горный или гибридный велосипед."
I was just going over the story one more time right now!
after I read a short article about this guy at Triathlete magazine Nov issue =)

Now I feel bad. Mea maxima culpa.

I didn't mean to offend mountain bikers, "hybriders", "beach bikers"and "recumbents". But I think i did inadvertently. I guess I am loosing touch with my diplomatic Russian . I just felt bad so many times when riders would show up on the fat tire bikes and then quickly get dropped by road group. But if anyone can maintain 18+ mph on the mountain or hybrid bike, you are certainly welcome. Sorry for the incorrect statement.

good to know it was not intentional ;) sometimes biking community does scare me off also by having all the hi-fi equip , me - being with my only pride and joy, my dear TREK. I feel bit of ugly-ducky then :)

But actually I just remembered you saying "it's not about the bike" some time ago when I read this article :)

at that hot July GA400 100-miler I saw one lady kicking it at a think tire cruiser :) was amused

I am trying to make up my mind between doing this ride or http://www.holidayinthehampton.org/ at Dec 7th
probably will go for this one cause I just can't wait to get back on the road!

Hi Nadya,

Thank you for finding the original post from Reality Bikes. I got the post on FB and I didn't know how to transfer FB link from my page to livejournal. I am not the verse with livejournal yet.

Yes, come over and bring your friends. Last year we had a lots of fun. Sheryl (wife of Todd Muller) was leading 25 miles ride. And even the 50-miler led by Ridley guys was moving at the mild "talkative" pace. After the ride we all had cappuccino and doughnuts. I even allowed myself a forbidden thing, a sugar infusion - I ate Boston cream doughnut. But after chilly wet ride last year it was worthy...

I think for the pack of Walmart tube socks this was an excellent ride.

If you want to enjoy cappuccino and doughnuts after the nice ride on picturesque roads, the Underwear ride will be a good choice. And by the way, there is a surprise at the end of ride :) - the Tribble Gap road, which is like those three hills on 400-hospitality century but longer.

Again, as far as the "fat tire" riders, my comment had not any hints on profiling the equipment, or anything like this. I never do this. I actually still believe in my statement "it is not about bike". It's like I mentioned, the non-road bike has technically different gear ratio and it makes difficult to keep up with the group of road riders. But certainly everyone is welcome, even if you have a tricycle with pink tassels and still keep up... :)

I hope the weather will cooperate and we will have a nice ride, not like last year in cold fog and mist.
