Rouleur - and/or Steel Wüleur



Exquisite image.

More Cobbled Classicisms



2010 Steel Wül Cobbled Classic lineup. You were here and rode everywhere!



A picture is worth a thousand words...in short, quite pensive group. What the hell is in the minds of these Steel Wüleurs? Tim - "Oh boy, I should have purposed more Belgian Butter" / Harry - "Can we ride already?" / Bruce - "OK, let's do this" / Apple - "Don't look at me" / Jay - "I'm with you Apple" / Supporting Cast - "WOW, can't wait to Facebook this S#@t."



Into Big Basin. Apple leading the charge, secretly scheming early entry to the KOM. Didn't prove decisive, though was in the battle - initially, til' Dave Reid showed his might.

"Ah ......the victory, she was easy,.... but the promoter Fotatore said
the Italians will be here maybe soon and I will race with the best of
them, like the nightingales they sing and the eagles they fly!"

Ride 2 Recovery (US Veterans of Iraq & Afghanistan)

video

Walbridge, Doug E. Fresh and I were completly humbled by these wounded soldiers as they peddled by us in Aptos on their way to Los Angeles. Please note the bi-lateral amputi who is powering up Buena Vista hill. These guys bring a new meaning to the term "suffering". I was proud to peddle with them!
