Event: January Team Ride – Road Team
Location: Jackson, New Jersey
This past Sunday, the women of Riptide-Cawes kicked off 2018 in style. With the new team kits having arrived just in time for the first team ride of the year, and being able to officially represent the team properly as well as the wonderful sponsors that keep the team going, the emphasis on team on this team ride could truly be felt. After a quick photo session with the talented Amy Cutler, all the riders were itching to hit the road to take full advantage in the break from frigid temperatures and test out the new Castelli gear.
The ride was an organized 45-55 mile loop through Jackson New Jersey hosted by team owners Teresa and Jeff Johnson. The team warmed up for several miles as a whole then focused strengthening team tactics for range of abilities about the halfway point. Working in more concentrated groups allowed all of the riders gain confidence in their skills that will be crucial in races, not only as individuals, but more importantly, as teammates. With such a strong start to the year, there is so much excitement and high hopes for the upcoming season!
Stay tuned later in the week for a post about our super fun photoshoot and a peek at some of the picture we took!!
