Saturday Davis Wheel Works Race Ride

For those of you that aren't avid cyclists and/or locals to the Davis/Sacramento Area - the Saturday, Davis Wheel Works Race Ride is one of the best "race-prep-workouts" around.  A 58 mile group ride with 2 marked sprints and 3 small climbs in-between, the group size can vary between 20-60 fine-tuned endurance athletes.  The group is diverse with a few continental pros, several local 2's and dozens of serious 3's, 4's and 5's trying to get ahead in their training.  Today's ride was a cold one with a 38 degree start and fog to add to the chill:
38 and fog feels about like 20

Debut of my new Fizik Saddle with "versus" technology, helps save the boys on a long ride

I'm a huge believer in fatter/beefier tires for winter workouts - these 25mm wide Conti 4-Seasons do the trick nicely
