This past Saturday, Bike Doctor brethren Bruno Neto, Pete Custer, and Sunny Gill got together in Williamsburg, VA for the Tidewater Classic Road Race, hosted by the William and Mary Collegiate Cycling Club.
Held on one of the flatter courses of the year, the Tidewater Classic is an opportunity for riders to test their legs, sharpen their comfort riding in a tight peleton, and of course have fun cruising along the country roads around York River State Park!
With only three riders, Team Bike Doctor made sure they had someone present in every breakaway and chase group that would emerge as the race thundered along. With a total distance of 50 miles, the Tidewater Classic was short on distance for a Category 1-2-3 Road Race, but where the racers had less miles to travel, it made for a higher speed and more active and exciting race.
Team Bike Doctor is excited to launch a new blog feature called Eating Well presented by Mayur Kabab House! This monthly, regular post, will talk about awesome recipes, alternative foods, and some great ways to cook. Team Bike Doctor is proud to have this regular feature supported by local D.C. restaurant Mayur Kabab House, which serves some of the area’s best Indo-Pak foods!
Time Crunched Fancy by Pete Custer
My wife and I are busy. She balances her 9-5 with triathlon training, coaching, and monthly Reserve Duty. I have less on my plate; just work and cycling, but I also lose an astounding number of hours keeping our stable of sports and fitness gear organized, working, and maintained. On top of this, we are DC sports fans, so anytime the Caps, Redskins, Nats, or Wizards are on, we are probably glued to that. We do NOT have any kids or pets, so I can’t even imagine how time crunched a parent and weekend warrior athlete must be. For Melissa and I, there are three massively important things we address every day to stay fit, healthy and happy: Nutrition, Activity, and Sleep!
