CDCX is a go tomorrow. I have a firm understanding of the temporal nature of the area of the race. I decided today to have one last crack at the route, to insure that there hadn’t been any large changes to the roads. Alas, I was met with misfortune and discovered a key stretch has been barricaded behind a police checkpoint. No go.
In the spirit of trying to wring every last bit of fun from the area, and give a few fellow riders the opportunity to experience this spot for themselves, I’ve decided to restructure the route. It will still be broken up in a 50/50, dirt-to-tarmac, ratio. The adjusted route will be much shorter, however, and require more laps. Funny enough, it’s actually shaping up more like a CX race.
Finally, since the route is not the one originally posted, I will guide a ride-through of it. This will keep people from getting turned around, when it comes time to rip it for real. 不见不散。
