Lone Star Lovin!

A lot of good cycling happened this past week.   Thursday Night there was the Velo Garage Ride.  Friday Night,  KC Critical Mass, and then Sunday, Timber, Derek Nelson, and I road in the Lone Star Century.  The wind was pretty brutal, though not as bad as last years according to Timber, but still rough enough that several choice words and foul sentiments were unleashed upon the State of Kansas.  We also met a new rider, Jeff who joined in with our line around mile 65 and finished the ride with us.  100 Miles ridden in a day!  Into the wind for a lot of it, but it’s done!  Derek, sadly, started cramping around mile 50, and smartly so, made the choice to turn off and take the 68 mile route.  Around mile 80, I was mentally congratulating him for a game well played.  He got back in time for Beer and Food.  They were all out, by the time we got there.

As I said to a few, We didn’t get First, but we also didn’t get Last.

2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

From Last.

To qualify that though, a lot of people who registered for the full 100 called it and didn’t make the turn.  The wind was that brutal.  Only 1 other rider made the turn onto the 100 mile route after Scott and I did, and there were several behind us at the SAG stop right at the turn.

Be sure to Check Out all the upcoming Rides and Join team Bad Decisions for some fun.

The Site is Live

Welcome to the all new Breakfast Bike Beer Website.  Home of Team Bad Decisions.   I’ve decided to create a permanent online home for us to keep track of what rides we’re planning on riding, and other details that are pertinent to the group.   I hope you enjoy it and make use of it in the future.


Rides:  This page contains a calendar with all of the upcoming ride events that we are planning on.  If you know of an event and want to add to the list, send me an email with the details.

Ragbrai:  This page contains details as we start planning out our yearly trip to IOWA for ragbrai.  This section is still a work in progress, but expect more details soon.

Breakfast Bike Beer Ride:  A page with details about our monthly organized rides.  Most of this is duplicate details that’ll also be available in the Rides page.

Planned Future Features

Image Gallery:  I want us to be able to upload and keep Images and videos taken during our ride.   A good way to look back at what we’ve done as a group.

Rider Tracking:  I’d love to be able to create profiles for each of our team members and be able to track the total mileage everybody’s ridden as part of the group.

Resources:  Provide good links and details to resources in and round Kansas City that are cycling related.  Looking for a good Local Bike Mechanic?  This will be a good place for you..

Team Profiles:  Create profile pages for each of our team members.  Tell the world about you!

Come back often and see what’s new!
