RESULTS: SMSS #1, South Mountain Hill Climb, Apr 24

What a great evening for a little bike race.  Is there a better place on this green Earth for cycling?

Anyway, there was a diverse, if not large, group that came out to play.  Big shout out to the boys from Dickinson College that came to join us.  Many happy returns!

Also, given the numbers, we deviated from the normal three-person teams and went to two.

Thanks again to everyone who made it.  Hope to see you all again on Tuesday (for the first run at the Ironmasters TT--a two-man deal) and next month for ever-popular Pine Grove RR.  (Complete schedule here.)

Ship Cycling Movie Stars Part 2

Remember this? Yeah I forgot about it too, but Chris Townsley didn't!

Anyways the move came out, finally. IMDB has it listed as 6.2/10 and Rotten Tomatoes has a Tomatometer rating of 26%. Trailer below.

I have not watched it so I will withhold judgement. I can't sit still through a whole movie. So I skipped ahead to the goodies, the cycling scene! Below are some screenshots.
