IJM.org/ Thumbprint Racing Team Ride

Posted: Category: Training 1 Comment


What a great ride! our first IJM.org/ thumbprint racing meet and greet ride went off perfectly. A spin around Mercer then around the north end of Lake WA (with a stop into our sponsoring shop uBRDO) and then back to Leschi. Alot of the folks I already knew but meeting some folks that were excited to start this team and their enthusiasm really pumped things up for us.

I started from home so by the time I got home a hit the 72 mile mark and the lack of a breakfast was starting to set in. Thankfully I got 2 Hammer gels at uBURDO and those really came in handy.

Bike – BMC SL01 51-35 qrings x 11-25 Spinergy Stealth wheels

Ride food – 1 large bottle of HEED, 1 small bottle of nuun, bag of cliff blocks and 2 hammer gells.

Breakfast – none (stupid)

What a great ride. I’m so excited for next year!!!

  • Agree on the food thing. Didnt get a coffee cause the Deli was a little backed up – then the Mercer loop turned into the LONG ride – but it was super to chat with folks and since we only averaged 13.8 MPH I was able to make it on just a bananna. First time on the alternate Seattle approach staying off Burke – very cool! Thanks for organizing.
