Rocket Ride: The Love of Suffering

Written by Tall Bryan on . Posted in Bicycle Racing, Rides, Road, Seattle No Comments

The Rocket Ride brings together some of the fastest road riders/racers in the Seattle area. A weekly training ride made up of mostly members of and friends of HSP. It is a tough ride on a good day, and if you know our typical Seattle winter weather, well its usually not a good day.

This past Saturday friend of GMG Andy Bokanev followed the ride in a support vehicle documenting the suffering in the less than idea road riding conditions. Temperatures were pegged firmly in the upper-30 territory and the light drizzle turned to cold rain, to sleet, and then to snow.

Check out Andy’s full photo set of the ride HERE.

I got some nice friends

Written by Ryan on . Posted in Bicycle, Events, Rides, Seattle No Comments

So I’ve been in Alaska for the past few months.  Living on a boat, fishing for salmon.  I didn’t get to ride a whole heck of a lot.  Landing back in Seattle we are just about to start cyclocross season.  Brian decided to put together a little ride as a “welcome home.”  Greg (of GMG) who does much of the design stuff for our races made up a flier and voila!  We’re going on a bike ride (more likely a bar crawl.)

Pretty awesome.  Thanks guys.  It’s good to be back!
