While many of us spent our weekend racing in Hermann, MO Cooper, Tyler, Brian, and co. spent the weekend riding out to watch the races. Here’s a report:
Words and photos by Cooper.
We meet at Ernie’s for breakfast at 7:30 a.m. Tim and I are first, and we take a table outside while we wait for the other half of our group to arrive. Shortly later, Tyler and Ryan roll up on their bikes. They’re riding with all of their camping gear, whereas Tim and I have decided to take advantage of our car-driving friends and have our gear sagged down to Hermann.
Breakfast is consumed quickly. My stomach is waking up slow and it’s hard to fill up. Ryan reveals he thought we were going to take the Katy Trail, not the roughshod mixture of county highways and crushed limestone roads we have planned. We leave by 8:45, the tables are full of college kids and their parents fueling up for a game day we are all too eager to escape.
