This time our guidebook features the Gentle Lover's team riding some of their favorite roads in the west hills of Portland. Founded by Sacha and friends in 1998. The Gentle Lover's team has about as much fun as any team ever. They're as well known for their antics, like perching a hot tub atop the run up at a national caliber cross race, as they are for winning races. Cut from a cloth, often as little as possible and pink, this is a team that values their friendships and the honesty of the race itself above all else. Well, maybe not above having fun and often at their own expense. The spirit of this team is reflected, even manifest in what we now call Speedvagen. Tuff, fruity, fun and always ready to ride.
Shot by Speedvagen CX team rider, Jeff Curtes the GL's, as they are known locally, are one of Oregon's fastest and most entertaining teams.
Inside you'll also find details about our new paint schemes, awesome bike shots from our long time photographer, Bob Huff and more from our friends at Leave It On The Road.
