I so wanna do the Slow Ride event. But I think I'll get smoked.
Two (or more) riders face off, from start line to finish line, who can get there the SLOWEST? But here's the catch. You have to keep moving forward (no track stands) and you can't put a foot down. Oh and "Slow Ride" by the Edgar Winter Group is blaring at high volume. You know the jam, "sloww riide - take it eeezay!"
