Mmiiddnniigghhtt Ccllaassiicc

Kudos to everyone who rode the Midnight Classic this year! The Peddler Strava Club has a few members on the leaderboard for this year and I know some people beat some personal goals they had set for themselves. But the challenge this month was to take a ssllooww ride and one person was the slowest: Pete Sullivan! With a time of 1 hr, 42 minutes, and 53 seconds Pete is almost an hour behind the KOM. That's definitely some chill riding!

Pete, stop by the Walker location to pick out your T-shirt and size.

Can You Push SLOW?

The USA Pro Challenge starts on Monday the 18th and rides through Sunday the 24th. During this week the pros will ride 524 miles around Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. They will be pushing much faster than you and I, so I say "let 'em." I'm ready to sit back and watch and go on some chill rides. That's where this month's challenge comes into play. The Meritan Midnight Classic is August 23rd. While a lot of folks will be trying to treat this ride like a race we challenge you to treat it like a cruise. Whoever lands at the bottom of the leaderboard will win the challenge. Be sure you are registered for the ride here.

The prize for this challenge? A Bontrager Paw T-Shirt* to remind us that we don't always have to kit up to go ride a bike.
*T-Shirt subject to availability

Longer Miles and Shorter Months

It's me, right? These days are just flying by; filled with grand openings and grand projects and grand tours. Maybe you feel it, too? I think we need to take a step back and focus on what's important right now: riding bicycles. July felt really great and if you didn't get out and enjoy those cool temps, well, dudes, I feel sorry for you.

I know someone who did enjoy them, though. Goes by the name of Richard Taylor and he logged over 1,000 miles in the month of July. For his efforts I'm going to buy him some beers. Root beers. Flavored Gu. Root Beer Flavored Gu:
Swing by the shop on Walker and pick up your prize an any time, Richard!

Check back soon for the August Local Challenge!
