Team JuG spotted at Chico Outlaws game
Famed Chico-based cyclists, Principal Jeff und Chico Gino were spotted drinking copious amounts of Sierra Nevada pale ale from plastic cups at the Chico Outlaws season opener. News at 11.
In other news, Team JuG rode this weekend with a fellow named Eric, a CSU Chico Physics professor, who proceeded to spank us with great vigor and force up Honey Run. We met him at One Mile in Bidwell Park, and he asked, "Hey, do you guys mind if I tag along?"
I responded, "I don't know man, if you come I think I'll be the one tagging along."
He was one of those guys whose face looked chiseled from granite. His chin looked sharp. About 6'1" and 155 pounds - yeah that type.
When we hit the first climb on Honey Run Rd., he took off not to be seen again - until I woke him from his nap at the top... (kidding, he wasn't sleeping. But had certainly been waiting for quite a while). He looked up calmly, and smilingly said, "Hey, I broke my Honey Run PR today"
Between Eric schooling me on the hills and Jeff schooling me on the flats and downhills, I have to say I was worked after that ride. Fantastic time.
