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.
