Boom, there it is! Beautiful spring and awesome results, all in one weekend.
Whoa! Live Love Velo was out in force this weekend with awesome results all around.
At Battenkill, the most grueling road race in the Northeast, Karen surpassed her personal goal, finishing in the top third of the women’s cat 4. Kim, also a cat 4 for road racing, entered the cat 3/4 race and finished impressively in 9th place. We’re beaming for Robin, (aka The Godmother of Cycling on Long Island) who staged a brave comeback from a year off the bike and finished the epic race despite a multitude of challenges, including mechanicals. Special shout-outs to racers who had their sights set on Battenkill this year, but were side-lined with injuries: Amy and Sharon, we all hope that you will recover even faster than you ride!
Representing Live Love Velo’s Mountain Bike team, Diana lined up for Mooch Madness, the first race of the 2015 H2H NJ Mountain Bike Race Series. Her second place finish was well deserved and well fought.
Lia raced her mountain bike right here on Long Island at Stillwell Park, where Bicycle Planet held its mountain bike race to benefit the MACHO foundation, dedicated to inspiring, empowering and unifying people through the message encoded in our acronym; MY ACTIONS CAN HELP OTHERS. Taking the win in the cat 2 field, Lia proved that she she can help others and kick ass at the same time.
For the second week in a row, Christina took first in her category at the NJ Time Trial Series, proving this working mom is all that and a batch of vegan chocolate chip cookies.
And if that all isn’t enough, Live Love Velo club members were on the road and in the woods, enjoying the warm sunshine and one another’s company while spreading the gospel of the bike. Thanks to Deb O. for leading this weekend’s group ride!
