Happy Paris-Roubaix Day!

The infamous Fullerton Loop

Paris-Roubaix has always been my favorite one-day race. It’s the combination of a strong rider, with a bit of good luck, that always wins this race. That said, riders have come out of the woodwork and won in the past like Knaven and Guesdon. So in honor of Roubaix, Banning’s Bikes held their own version of Paris-Roubaix. We started from the shop and rode over the steep bergs of Fullerton till we reached the Fullerton Loop. A couple of quick dirt sections and we were back to the shop. Not a long ride, but fun nonetheless. The piece de resistance was the post-ride beers, sandwiches and watching Roubaix on their big screen t.v. at the shop. I had to bug-out early but next year I plan on closing the place down or till they kick me out.
