Come join the news team at the Trek Bicycle Store of Kansas City's hundredth Monday Night Recovery Ride. This jaunt around neighborhood streets, bike paths (and sometimes backyards) is designed as a ride for all abilities. Whether weekend warrior or first time to a group ride we keep it all together at a leisurely pace. Need some recovery from the weekend hammerfest? This is the perfect way to move those toxins out of the legs. BONUS: local beermeister Mark Jilka is donating a keg of his IPA style brew for the post ride refreshments. The ride starts at 6:30 PM from the Trek Bicycle Store of KC.
These folks put on a very cool event on a very hot day. The area has plenty of short time trials and the occasional epic 40KM, but this is a unique intermediate distance. The Capps-Rebound Team, Roger Harrison and the USCF Officials ran things super smooth. Thanks to Curtis Martel and the KCA for fast Results. Watch for pics soon.
