It has come to my attention that Richmond has no elevation.

Braden I see your riverside route. Is that what we should all ride?

Where do I pick up some sculpin when I arrive?
Where is the hipsterest cafe where a barista will take 5 minutes to pull a shot of espresso?

Depends on where you're staying but one of the best beer stores is Fine Foods in oregon hill. Shitty little spot but huge selection. They probably have sculpin.
Strawberry Street Market in the Fan has a smaller selection but it's still nice. And the store is cute. Get a pizza next door at 8 1/2 and a beer then go chill in Scuffletown park in the alley across the street.

my hipster cafe go-to is Lamplighter. They have two locations now but I prefer the original on Addison. http://lamplightercoffee.com/

Strawberry Street Market or Shields Market might have Sculpin.

I'd vote for Lamplighter on Addison as well.

Shorts... I love the folks at Lamplighter but there are other better places for coffee shartmo. I'm just not that stoked on their style.

Lift is right on broad a couple blocks from start/finish. Good coffee. Good food.

Alchemy a few blocks further away. You can tell from their name its hip as fuck and time consuming. Coffee science.

I'll be around off and on hopefully all day tomorrow. Hit me up.

Be sure to go by the starlight pop up. He's selling a really nice base layer for REAL cheap that has a photo of the libby hill cobbles printed on it. Probably the best functional souvenir you can get.

Ride tonight was fun. Frank and new guy were in attendance.

If you want a extra chill and easy to follow road ride just pick up the now completed capitol trail from downtown and go east until you feel like turning back.

Saddle sore. Days old. Cut the chamois out so it wouldn't rub.

Can someone buy me one of whatever cool caps that Rapha is selling to celebrate worlds? I will gladly pay you back for cost, shipping and your time. I actually found a Colorado World Championships cap at a thrift store, so it'll be a nice addition.

Pleeeeeease....

Negative. The griptape/sandpaper he uses on his saddle to limit slippage done wore through his bibs and taint.

I love the first comment:

"Perhaps grip tape on the skin suit would work better and wear out the saddle instead"

Where's the million $ idea thread?

fun day today. cruised the rapha ride braden led, fucked around on a pump track, fucked around on a pump track on a brompton, ate a baller burger, watched an exciting end to the u23 race, rode my ass of in the brompton worlds. cobbles were hard as fuck. got 4th though, lost my podium spot in the last half mile, just couldn't reel the dude back in. it all looked silly, but the front end of that race was not joking around.

had a blast at the dirtbags ride thursday night. though I am used to getting dropped, getting dropped on trails in pitch black darkness is a new one.

forgot to mention I'll be slinging coffee drinks (espresso/coldbrew/drip) in front of Harvest Grocery (Main and Lombardy) today from 9-5. first spro is on me. It's a corner so a solid spot to watch the race from. We also have sculpin. And grapefruit sculpin.

You're actually totally right. I thought LL was the shit when I lived there but since I have visited I realized it's not my thing. I think it's kinda burned honestly.

I liked black hand, though I don't know if they're still open.

And I don't know if alchemy was open while I was there. I don't remember it. Sounds fancy so very likely I wouldn't have gone anyway.

Richmond2015.com is a fucking joke. Feed crashed all day, an finally gave up the ghost entirely with 4km to go. Sad that I wasted an entire morning watching this, only for this disappointment. Anyway, I guess Sagan won?

I hope you guys made it rain beer and stripper cards on the pros.

Another example of his insane bike handling skills paying off. Easily opened 5+ sec on the chasing duo on the descent and subsequent corners, effectively getting him out of sight for as much of the run-in as he could. A+

^ sagan possesses fantastic bike handling skills. watching him move from corner-to-corner so effortlessly is a sight to behold, there's something about this guy that's very special

his win today is a win for cycling fans errywhere

CNBC live coverage was pleasantly good. Fun to see a bunch of people I know in the crowd on live TV on both Libby and 23rd.

Sags, winning races with no team/country help since forever.

The finish was amazing. Farrar giving it all to be the first one into Libby; Seeing sagan go on 23rd; then it being just like watching the race at home, except screaming at a much larger screen with thousands of people in your living room.

Good times, but my body needs to recover still and get back on normal food patterns and stretching.
