Hurray Hurray, it’s the first of May!

Time to head’er up the line, into the Pontiac, for our annual spring gallop.
Wheelers welcome all to our 130 km spring sportif.
A little gravel, a little wind, some great roads and a whole pile of fun.
Starting at Gavan’s Hotel in Quyon, QC.

Well they say Big Joe used to get real wet,
From pushing a big gear and workin’ up a sweat,
And everyone will tell you, all the way up the line,
If you’re ridin’ with the Wheelers, life’s mighty fine!

For some reason the comissaires saw fit to juggle the itinerary for the masters races so it kind of messed up the game plan and left the riders a bit confused as to what race and hence what equipment to install next on the bike. The other riders were not working together to catch us at all – they were totally messed up doing dick -all, so we gradually kept gaining ground each lap until with just over 3 laps to go we came up behind them.

John Gee along with a few other guys was trying an early breakaway, but the headwind and fresh legs in the peloton kept things together.The race route is mostly flat but there are a couple of long roller type hills along the way. I have not had a great year on the bike, feeling at times totally unmotivated to train and ride, and also suffering from some minor medical things that kept me from maximizing training when I did go out.
