The 2014 Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic & Velothon

4 Jun

Last week/end we finally moved all of our crap out of our old apartment and did the whole clean/paint/hate life trying to get our security deposit back. Fingers crossed.

Saturday was a bit of house work and a little karaoke action (don’t worry I only heckled)

Sunday was BRIGHT and early with a few hours of sleep for what some may say ‘The best day of the year’… the big philly pro race now dubbed ‘The Parx Casino Philly Cycling Classic’ I cruised down to the art muesuem around 6:30am to meet up with the NBW/Cadence kids for the first Velothon in philly using Philly Classic course plus some dips into Fairmount Park PLUS down through the city somehow. I still don’t understand the hows or why but riding down the parkway and around city hall blocked off from traffic with the kids was amazing!

The 5 of us started at the back and crushed past plenty of people and Id like to say all three young-guns made it up the wall passing slews of people. I didn’t know how theyd do but walking wasn’t even close to an option. I was seriously impressed.

After the ~30mile ride we made it back to lemon hill to watch the women then men race the rest of the afternoon. I sometimes forget how many people there are in the tight-knit philly cycling scene until everyone gets together for days like this. And as usual, another great weekend.
