This past Tuesday was the first chance I got to go on the infamous Factory Five group ride and sheesh, I was blown away. I’d guestimate a little over 300 heads showed up the ride, all on various types of bicycles; track, fixed, road, hybrid and even mountain bikes were all present and in solid numbers. I rode my new F550.
We met up at the shop around 8:30 for a 9 PM departure, taking us all over the city. One of the best parts of finally getting a bike to ride in Shanghai is getting my bearings and a sense of direction. For my first two months here, I had no idea where anything was let alone what general direction I needed to be going. Since then, I’ve been out almost every night getting my spin on, doing some exploring and spot hunting. I said it a while back, but stay tuned for some detail shots of my new whip in the coming days!
