For riding buddies it’s hard to beat JoeRay & Wes. Check this. I showed up with a new bike for a 40-miler in Orange, Alamance County. They let me take every county line and bought me a vanilla milkshake from Mapleview at the finish. That’s what I’m talking about. These guys know how to pay proper homage.
Today was a good test ride. Yesterday was more of a shake-out ride to make sure no parts fell off. Today was a bit brisker pace, with lots of chip&seal along the route. I changed a bit of the set-up, and the bike felt great today. It actually corners better than my carbon bike and tracks perfectly. I did some hands free riding at 30 mph. Not bad. The big test is coming up, with a 225-miler next weekend.
