It's that time of the year again. Between family, friends, and a table full of food it is hard to get those hours in on the bike. That's why we were busy getting our time in before the break began. But, while many of us spent the weekend training, a select few headed to the EDS Superdrome in Frisco, TX, where the team hosted TheBiggest BIcycle Swap Meet in Texas on Saturday the 17th .
This was established as a fundrasier for the team and a portion of the sales of vendor space went to help support the upcoming season. The day was a big success for all of the vendors involved and we hope to make it an annual event. For more information or to reserve a space for next year be sure to check out the facebook page.
Last week was a long one as the team got back to training for the road season. The fall/winter base miles mean a lot of time in the saddle and I'm sure everyone was feeling it on their Monday recovery day. If you'd like to follow some of the team's training routes this winter and see how your workout compares, check us out on Strava.
After a long windy weekend on the bikes here in Wichita Falls, it was time for a little relaxation. Two of our biggest supporters here on campus, Dr. Howard Farrell, V.P. of university advancement and public affairs, and Dr. Robert Clark, V. P. of administration and institutional effectiveness, were kind enough to host a BBQ for the team Sunday evening.
Cory Scott took this great photo of everyone enjoying a little friendly competition, thanks buddy.
The highlight of the evening, after a couple of intense matches on the pool table, was definitely the grill-off between Director Zamastil, a vegetarian, and Dr. Farrell, an avid carnivore. I'm not sure who won but everyone agreed the steaks were awesome.
