KITS ARE HERE!

It’s been a long wait-

Many months of researching vendors, designing kit, and waiting for the shipment.

BUT THE WAIT IS FINALLY OVER! 2016 Season kits are HERE!

We are so excited to have gotten them right on time, and to see our hard work in person. They definitely have a different look and feel than previous years, so we’re also excited to share with everyone who bought them. We’d love to hear your feedback!

BU students should expect to pick them up ASAP, and those who are receiving their orders by shipment- expect them within the next week as we take time to organize and ship out everything individually with love.

Thank you to all again!

And big thanks to Craft for making our experience go as smoothly and stress-free as we could have imagined!

Love,

Rollin’, Rollin’, Rollin’

Hey team, alumni, and friends-

Hope everyone is enjoying this awesome weather before the winter descends on us (I hear it’s going to be like last year! Brrrr).

New England is the absolute best place to be riding at this time of year, because you get to see all of the great changing colors.

This past weekend was our first 50 mile Concord route, which is one of our favorites. It’s a bit longer, more challenging, with some good climbs.

For all those who don’t have the opportunity to join us on the group ride or don’t want to be stuck behind the ride leader the whole time when there’s so many town lines to sprint for—

Here’s a map and route guide! If you have a Garmin, including the 500, you can download it and put it on there to follow on your ride. If not, you can study some of the major turns and intersections on your own and jot them down on a cue sheet, which can be taped onto your top tube (just like how the pros do it).

Here is the TCX file download if you would like to add it to your Garmin or GPS!

 

 

Now, go out and explore!
