Our Lunch time Urban Assault Ride almost got violent. We passed a truck parked in the bike lane and one of the guys told the driver he’s not supposed to park there. Apparently this was a very sensitive subject with this guy as he exploded. He jumped in his truck and started yelling all kinds of obscenities repeatedly calling us F****ing Spandex wearing faggots. One of the riders told him what to do with himself and he immediately sped ahead of us, pulled over, and wanted to fight. I thought nothing good can come out of this and we should ignore him. We did and he continued to comment on our attire and what he believed to be our sexual orientation. It was a good ride though, we went at a very brisk pace. I wanted to make sure I stayed at low LT or below, which meant getting dropped a bit on the climbs and drafting on the flats.

Tuesday morning started at 4 AM with an easy run of 8.5 miles and 15 – 20 second sprints thrown in throughout. Felt really good. What a great way to start out the day! At lunch a long ride with the Urban Assault Gang that turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous ride. We got out of the heavy traffic into some very expensive neighborhoods. Quite amazing houses and quiet streets. Had some good climbs too. Great ride!
