Safety Shirt

FT3 welcomed a new rider into the ranks last Tuesday, and he may actually come back.
Conditions were far better than threatened. Our esteemed Ride Leader kept us on soil that mostly stayed down and swimming removed any trace of dust. Best of all, the new orange shirts. Anyone get a picture?

Who's IN?

Can you see all ten riders in this picture?

Blame the log trucks, or the increased mtn bike traffic, or the heat wave. Pollywood's soils are roasted and pulverized to baby powder consistency. Not that any of FT3's hard men would be intimidated by riding in a little dust. Especially when its new t shirt night.


I (NoHandle) am co-opting this post for a listing
If you are interested in a rear rack, 2" receiver style, 4 bike, swing arm.  Contact me via back channel.  This is not mine, but I told a friend I would share the info.

2017 FT3 Kit Order

With the formal FT3 retirement of "Retired Guy" I have been handed over the immense responsibility of ordering your kits. That being said I get to make some decisions related to the next kit order. I have ordered a fit kit and it should be present in time for next Tuesday's Ride. Here is the breakdown of what we will be trying on:

Summit Bib and Jersey: These are the updated versions of the super expensive and high end kits that we had in black (jersey $104, bib $159)

We are going to add a new product offering with this order, the Ascent line:

Ascent Jersey, $89 and Bib $89. We will also have an offering for a Continental short or bib at $69 and $74 respectively.

I am hoping that we will be able to order either jersey in blue or black,  staying with black and white shorts/bibs all around.

Must meet a $1,000 minimum to change kit design. So changes to design will be dependent on how much product we collectively order.

So, now is the time, declare your desires here in the HCF. My order is indicated below, please use the same format:

2 Continental Short - Black
2 Ascent Jerseys (one blue one black)

Spread the word, the kit order will be placed by the end of next week. 4 week turnaround time after that.

Kudos to XTeric and one other for riding on Tuesday July 4, keeping it real.
