Wolfpack HuSTLe- The V… 11-17-13

November 22, 2013 in St. Louis, The Hustle Ride by Tbrokus

Longtime Hustler Chris V decided to make the route for last Sunday and in my opinion, he nailed it. Like it was your mom… The wind was absolutely horrible, yet helpful at times, and according to the weather channel, it got up to 70 m.p.h. but that didn’t stop us from hustlin. The route took us around the park and into North City and then all the way down St Charles Rock Rd into downtown. From there we killed it down Broadway to arsenal and took that all the way til it ended and then we crushed Manchester flats to Handlebar. See everybody Sunday night….

Wolfpack HuSTLe Jefferson Barracks 11-10-13

November 15, 2013 in St. Louis, The Hustle Ride by Tbrokus

On Sunday night we did an old but super fun hustle. We head down to Broadway from Coffee Cartel and head South all the way to Jefferson Barracks Park, turn around and come back, hitting up Chouteau and all of its hills. Not a long hustle but that means you have to hit it a little harder to get all you can out of it. And that’s exactly what we did with lead pack averaging over 20 mph. KILLIN IT!!!! Wolfpack owns Broadway! Andrea came out for her second hustle and Owen came out to his first. Both of them kicked ass! I hope they come out again this week. See y’all Sunday

2013 STL Wolfpack Hustle Rock ‘n Roll Marathon Crash Race 10-27-13

If anyone reading this hasn’t done a WPH Marathon Crash Race, you won’t understand the rush that comes from blazing through the pitch black city streets at 20+ mph with some of the fastest people who can ride a bike. It was 3:30 a.m. and it was downright chilly in STL. All the usual suspects and a few new faces gathered to crash the “Rock N Roll Marathon”. We had a couple out-of-towners come down from Chicago for the race with OG Hustler Zach. Kayce made the announcements through the sickly sounding megaphone and after a quick jaunt through the start/finish line (which that prick cop hated), we waited for the light to turn green and we were off. The race was fast with a lot of turns which made it easy to get lost if you weren’t with someone who knew the course (even though we had turnsheets). Max ended up way off course and almost visited Penrose Velodrome in north city, Zach went down on Forest Park Parkway, Kayce was holding out money on Washington Ave for people to grab mid-race right from his hand, there were at least 3 flats, and when it was all said and done, Rob Varmer ended up winning it all by a margin of at least 6 minutes. Kayce then divvied up the prizes that were donated by Jeremy @ Cherokee Street Bikes. The sun was coming up and we were all freezing, exhausted, hungry, and had to avoid hundreds off runners about to run our race course.

 

Rob Varmer (1st overall, 1st fixed)

Chris Vela (2nd overall) (fixed)

Andy Grueninger (3rd overall, 1st geared)

Tom Brockus (4th overall) (fixed)

Zach Slavens (5th overall) (fixed)

Courtney  Cushard (6th overall, 1st womens) (geared)

Jack Helvey (7th overall) (geared)

etc, etc, etc…..

 

A huge Thank You to everyone who came out to race and especially to Kayce, Chris V, Jack, and Chris Green for putting this all together. And a Super Huge Thank You to Jeremy @ Cherokee Street Bikes for donating the prizes. You all kick ass!!!

Go buy stuff from Jeremy @ Cherokee Street Bikes. He always supports the alleycats

STL Wolfpack Hustle: To141 and Back 10-20-13

October 30, 2013 in St. Louis, The Hustle Ride by Tbrokus

This was a ride I had never done before but I’m glad I did. Manchester is a fast fast fast road all the way out to the county with plenty of rolling hills. And if there is one thing Wolfpack STL loves, its LOTS-O-HILLS… It was a smaller Hustle with only 9 at the start but that didn’t stop us from killin it all the way out to the county and back.

Wolfpack HuSTLe – St.Louis 12-16-2012

December 17, 2012 in St. Louis, The Hustle Ride by Rolomite

Wolfpack assembles At the Coffee Cartel in Central West End

Wolfpack Hustle St.Louis meets at the Coffee Cartel in Central west End every week-  on Sunday at 8pm . We usually ride out close to 830. Rides range from city laps to the great beyond and back. We finish at The Handlebar in the Grove neighborhood. And we always bring that HuSTLe!

Tonight Tielsen recieves the coveted Wolfpack Hustle spoke card. We also observe his 42nd birthday as our good friend and lead-pack rider!

Lead pack pace – there abouts.

We finish our ride at the Handlebar, as always. It’s a bicycle bar. It’s fucking awesome.

Winding down before the ride home at the Handlebar.

Wolfpack Hustle STL All-City Laps

October 17, 2012 in CRAY SHIT, Route Maps, St. Louis, The Hustle Ride by Big Wolf

We go wayyyy out into the county most Hustles, but sometimes it’s rad to just tear ass around your own backyard.  This whole city is our backyard.  According to our Stravas, we ride this city more than most, so Wolfpack Hustle STL City Laps has become a furious tradition, lapping our whole city, twice.  From the Arch to Skinker, and back again, Wolfpack Hustle STL is pushing mileage, and keeping those loners out there in check on the boards.

Longtime Hustler, and Dog Tag holder (1st Women’s Fixed, STL Wolfpack Hustle Marathon Crash Race, 2012), Wolfpack Tracy, received her spoke card before the Hustle.  I haven’t seen many people in STL city streets, on a bike, more than Tracy.  Congratulations Tray Tray.

What a bitchin’ ride.  Bring your Hustle, STL.

Courtney and Jon C. took a small spill on the ride. Both Hustlers are fine. Jon’s back is hurting a little, but he’ll be okay. Wolfpack fam.

Jon is super hungry for some STL style ‘za from Imo’s.

Wolfpack Hustla and graphic designer Jon Simons made this quick video of last week’s Hustle (9/23/2012), shot on his new GoPro.  As we, here in STL, continue to explore our city, grow, and smash the speed limits, we want to be able to share our experiences as much as possible with everyone.  Thanks for the film, Jon.  STL Wolfpack is bringin the Hustle.

STL Wolfpack Hustle 9/16

September 17, 2012 in Route Maps, St. Louis, The Hustle Ride by Big Wolf

Sean CBF, Miles, Tiel, Wheel-Son, V

Tonight’s route continues to be a Wolfpack favorite, for many reasons. We crossed the McKinley Bridge into Illinois, which few dare to do, even with a group. Then we Hustled up the riverfront of the grand “Mississip” on Highway 3, which is essentially a super flat time trial, with few cars and lights, for as many miles as your heart can handle. Groups of Wolfpack stuck together, drafting and pace-lining off of each other, trying to catch the ~22mph lead pack.

Hella speed.

 

Wolfpack STL welcomes new Hustlaz Matt, Kim, Cage, and Tiel.  Matt needs two new helmets: one for his head, and one for his beard.  Someone should hook him up.

For all those who thought I was giving lip service: I am going to send this guy this photo of him in his Saints hat, via snail mail, as he requested. Because, hey, he survived Katrina.

McKinley Bridge

Wolfpack STL welcomes Kim, who just moved here from CHI.

Wheel Son and Simons got spoke cards tonight. Between them, these guys have put over a thousand Wolfpack Hustle miles on STL pavement. STL WPH OGs.

Helmet pads: drenched. Phone: dead. Water bottles: empty. Bowls and beers: full.

Here’s the route. No stops were paused. Links to Strava.
