Secret Groad 11

Sunday, September 15

Meet: 9am, Rapha Boulder

Start: A bit after that

Finish: Later

Here are your groadpoints, in no particular order:

- Dry Creek Community Park. There's a cross racing happening. You must cheer.

- Twin Lakes Dirt Jump Park

- Sunshine Saddle (Top of Rowena)

- Lefthand OHV, second intersection. The higher you go at OHV, the more steezgorithm points you get. 

As always, you can hit the groadpoints in any order. 

 

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. 

 

See above for your Groadpoints. 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 margs and tacos out there?

You bet. 

 

Will there be coffee at the beginning? 

Yes. 

 

See you there.
