THE SECRET* GROAD SERIES
The next Secret Groad: Sunday, September 15
Hello groaders. We missed you all summer. Hope your groads were good and plentiful.
Let's groad again. This Sunday, September 15. Rolling from Rapha a bit after 9. Click here for Groadpoints and a map.
As always, this Secret Groad will be chill as heck. However, chill doesn't have to mean slow. If you want to chill fast, that's cool too.
The winner of this Secret Groad will be the Groad SuperNational Champion.
This is similar to a National Championship, except that it is superior.
That means the top team this weekend will by default be comprised of the nation's top groaders. This will result in myriad material spoils and certain fame.
See you there.
Secret Groad FAQs:
How does this work
It's pretty simple. You get some friends — this is your team. You come up with a team name. This is the extent of the pre-registration process.
On Friday we'll post three to five groadpoints here (and send them out in an email, sign up above). Look at them. Look at maps. Look at the Strava heat map. You and your team need to get to all those groadpoints, in any order, and then back to the start. First team back wins. Make a route.
Show up at the right time and place, put your team name on the list.
Go for a ride.
What bike should I ride?
Last year we had people on 23mm road tires and people on mountain bikes. You do you, boo. Remember, you make your own route.
How do we know we found the right groadpoint spot?
You will know. There will be a thing. Or there might not be. Wing it.
How will everyone else know we got to the right spot?
One team member will take a short video of another team member doing 10 pushups at each waypoint. Upload this video to Instagram at the finish. Hashtag it #Groad so we can find it.
There is no 'I' in Team. But if you must ride alone, you still have to get video of yourself doing pushups.
What about results?
When you get back to the finish, you will write your team name on the results sheet. The order in which names are written is the finish order. Voilá.
Will there be beer and maybe pizza at the end?
Yes and maybe
Will there be coffee at the beginning?
See you there.
