Tonight’s adventure took us on the Serpentine 8 route in Watopia.

We had seven riders (Charlie, Chris, Iggy, Melissa, Tim, Zinj, and me) for our 60 minute journey.

Our Discord conversation covered a variety of topics. Chris was an official at Noho CX and explained his duties, including the rules of the pit. It is complex to officiate a cyclocross event.

Iggy had some technical difficulties at the beginning. He time trialed his way towards the group and gradually decreased the gap. Melissa and I stayed back to pull him closer to our other riders before Iggy told us to keep going. The joy of Discord is that we can still chat with one another if we are separated.

Towards the end, we began discussing Zwift route we all have remaining. We may need to coordinate to knock off some of the larger routes with Discord company.

At the end of the ride we were a bit spread out on course. We did approximately 14.3 miles with 696 feet of climbing.
