Saturday morning the Talisman group convened for one last farewell spin for Jon Bird before he embarks on the next phase of his life. Jon is moving to Victoria to train with the National training center after he spends 3 weeks in Maui on what will be an intense 3 week training camp.
For the last spin we packed our training area with 22 close friends and spun away. The atmosphere was incredible and everyone got loud and rowdy, just the way I like it. We had a 30km Team time trial competition which got everyone fired up and lead to a tough workout for all. The atmosphere was electric, the music was pumping, the watts were being pushed and sweat was flowing (and not just from me this time!). What a great send off, you will be missed Jon.
Here are some pics, but check out Cindy’s blog for more.
