SLICK 50 - 2015 Edition

Posted March 16, 2015 @ 5:14pm | by Hurl

It's become somewhat of an institution around these parts, and of course I'm talking about the Slick 50 Spring Class-Sick ride. I try to never use the same route twice, and this year we'll be heading easterly, foraging some new and old roads, a mixture of fast urban path climbing, wide-shouldered country byways, and greasy peanut butter secteurs.

The planned end point is the [*EDIT] Flat Earth Brewing Co. located over near Swede Hollow, on the grounds of the famous Hamm's Brewery, Wabasha Brewing Company [*EDIT] Please remember, the Slick 50 is not a race, although the pace can be, uh, "spirited," and selections may be made. But fear not, we'll regroup after the return via Concord Ave and the Wabasha Bridge, before dropping down Bum's Row for the second time and onto the Bruce Vento trail to Flat Earth, via Swede Hollow. There may, or maybe not, be a food truck there. I'd pack an extra burrito in your jersey pocket, just in case. Lastly, there is only one rule on the Slick 50: NO KOOKS!
