“No matter how many times we say. ‘We’re just out for a ride, we’re going to take it easy today’. It always turns into a race, one I’m never going to win. I’ve got a more than an adequate base, so I know if I stay hydrated, I’ll make it. But my training, beer and southern food, doesn’t seem to be working. At least not against these guys.” – Tony Pereira
“I wake up to Ben’s vibrating phone alarm, his wake-up time is 30 minutes earlier than mine, must be a cat 2 move. At 7:00am we head to breakfast. I try to determine what food will likely sustain me on my first 100-mile ride of the year. I decide to order what Ben orders, thinking ‘do as the pro does’. But granola and yogurt, for a hundred mile ride? As I order I figure at this point I’m committed to both the ride and breakfast, yeah granola.” – Greg Johnson
“I like the flapping thespian flags. The fifteen-feet tall and four-feet wide brightly colored rectangles picturing lions and swords and lions with swords lining the roads and major intersections. And all the outdoor enthusiasts hybriding about on blades and bikes, in hot air balloons, with their Labradors. Hundreds of decks and patios crowded with middle-aged wine spectators, foodies and summer home owners. Riding through town feels like riding through a glossy color tri-fold brochure.” – Daniel Pasley
"I think Daniel's breakfast included pancakes AND a sandwich." - Ryan Thomson
