We road the Richmond course this evening. Specifically, the Libby Hill After Party route, which is now available for club rides. The route is a bit unusual as it is five laps of the Fan Flat route followed by a finish on Libby Hill.

We had three riders (Tim, Zinj, and me). Zinj got off his bike several times, including one time to put air in his front tire. Tim and I enjoyed lapping him on our final Fan Flat lap. Yet, Zinj claims he was saving his legs for tomorrow’s race.

Our Discord conversation covered last night’s hill climb, the new Apple TVs, power meters, and heating system.

In total for our one hour ride, we rode approximately 20 miles with 388 feet of climbing. Tim and I were riding at a decent clip, but Strava has us last on the route for NCC riders. Granted, the event only route is typically used for races.
