The Stuff Legends are Made of

March 10, 2009

tuesday_nighterTonight marks the return of one the most cherished cycling traditions in Austin- The One, The Only, Tuesday Nighter . Often imitated-never duplicated. Highly envied by non-Austinites. Daylight savings is here, and we’ve got sunlight to race with until 8pm now! I will make the group migration to those hallowed racing grounds in southeast Austin. We will conquer the hills, battle the wind, battle each other, try to avoid wheel destroying cracks in the road, and circumnavigate the traffic, which has steadily grown each year as urban sprawl gradually makes its way towards this sacred 9 mile loop. Some will survive and finish with the pack, others will be dropped like flies and left to wander home by themselves with their tail hanging between their legs. Whatever the outcome, every racer will have good time and get a good workout, and rest easy that night knowing they took part in history.
