Can You Feel the Love
And of course there was the main event, Air Max Stutter Step which included a kickoff speech from Philadelphia Mayor Nutter himself. By 11:00 there were a couple hundred racers standing on Belmont Plateau overlooking the shimmering skyline. Fifteen minutes later the shimmering skyline vanished from sight as a low heavy cloud cover rolled in and the first flakes of a storm that wasn't forecasted to hit until late afternoon fluttered down from the sky.
a fine time. But for now, I'm going to take a few days and bask in this wonderful Philadelphia feeling. Thanks to all that came out and play. Come back and see us again sometime.
bring Single Speed Cyclocross World Championships (SSCXWC) to Philly this year, I was giddier than a bride on her wedding day to share the place and the people I love with the rest of the world.
Kitted up and ready to rock. Note the Philly skyline on the horizon. And no, I not a smurfette.
Though I could very easily write a thousand or two thousand words on what went down during this wonderful weekend, this is one of those occasions where the pictures really say it best.
So, when I realized very early on that I was out of any sort of running, I just decided to run with it and enjoy all the antics the event has to offer. Again, I'll let the photos do the talking
Two hours later, I would be standing on the start line in nearly four inches of snow. We not only couldn't see the city anymore, we could barely see to the bottom of the hill we'd be racing down a few moments later. The snow made for a crosstacular atmosphere. Strictly from a racing standpoint I didn't love it, because my shoes were caked with ice and I couldn't get in my pedals for much of the race, which isn't as fun as being in your pedals. (Some pedal systems handle these conditions better than others and I hadn't planned on racing in a blizzard, so my equipment selection was let's say, a little off. I was far from alone in this situation.). But the spirit of the event isn't really about the win, fun as it is to go for. It's about the celebration of the sport. And boy was this a celebration for the ages.

Philadelphia generally conjures up images of angry Eagles fans (we never have won the Super Bowl, you know?), the Liberty Bell, maybe Mummers. I'm willing to guess that most people wouldn't say cycling destination, which is understandable. I mean we're no Moab. But what we lack in big mountains and wide open spaces we more than make up for in a tight knit community of very creative cyclists.

I can confidently say I will remember it as fondly as any wedding I've been to, including my own. The reason was simple: You could feel the love in the city of brotherly adoration from sign in to sign off. It was one of the most beautifully ludicrous weekends of controlled mayhem one could imagine all because we really like bikes.
