RIDE NAKED TONIGHT? TOWNSEND PARK AT 6 - BIB SHORTS AND SHIRTS OPTIONAL

Julie Boonen (Tom's sister) getting down to the skin on last Tuesday's ride.

Crazy warm weather has us peeling and paring down our riding kits like never before in the month of March. Last night, while trying to hang on to Big Mac's wheel on a little cross country jaunt, I think I got a sunburn. Not to mention a "bonk" a "ruptured quad" a "dry throat" and  an unusual desire to be sitting at a table in an air-conditioned restaurant enjoying Whine-Down Wednesday.

In March we're used to seeing outfits like this on the Crazy Bastard rides.

But instead the ride staging in the parking lot has been looking more like this.

Big Kahuna shows off what we should be wearing right now - and what was appropriate attire just a few weeks ago.

Now the rides are literally becoming "a handful" when it comes to showing it all. Yeah this is happening, for sure.
Tonight I wouldn't be surprised to see the Stradelli Cycle gal roll up for a "quick loop." Looks like the perfect Barry Ruby outfit, to me, doesn't it?

This could be tonight's ride. Though I'm thinking the paint could be a little hot. And look, those women don't have any helmets on! The shame.

 The real question is (and you can see Julie Boonen looking all serious here while I ask) is what Julie will be wearing, or won't be wearing on tonight's ride.

My guess, with the direction things are heading, is probably something like this.

Plan on rolling out at 6 from Townsend. See you cycle-fashionistas there.

  4. You mean Tuesday? I think you're stuck one time zone off. Think you'll make it tonight? Oh, the pics, we always get those photos on the night's you're not there. Just luck, or unlucky I guess.
