Bike Chatter

I got a chance to ride with my new teammate Sebastian Selas today for the first time since he joined the team for the USA Pro Cycling Challenge (in which he of course rode exceptionally well). We ventured through downtown Vancouver and out Marine drive to Horseshoe Bay, a route I have never ridden, under glorious skies and a cool breeze. It looked and felt kind of like this....
As we ducked and dove through traffic, pedaled and coasted between lights, took in the sights of the big city and the nearly complete BC Place renovation (I think it looks cool, whereas others may disagree) we chatted about his August, riding as a professional, training in Vancouver and of course the future. These small gaps in the conversation were ideal though as it gave us time to figure out what next to discuss...they are always more questions and stories than your ride has time for so you might as well talk about the fun stuff. It's a great way to keep the conversation moving smoothly. Try to stop talking mid sentence at a coffee shop...kind of weird.

Another reason why riding bikes is all about people.

I leave you with Team Exergy's brand new commercial supporting our FANTASTIC wheel sponsor for 2011...WILLIAMS WHEELS. By now I don't even need to tell you how fast these things are...because you should have figured it out by now.
