About The Lobster Roll
On June 21st, Brian, JB, Mike, Nathan & Tim rolled out of the Philadelphia suburbs with the goal of arriving on June 26th in South Bristol, Maine, 629 miles from door to door. It started as a casual comment, “How hard could it be?” After carefully mapping the route, devising a training plan, working through logistics and the nitty-gritty, the answer was clear: really hard. But as with all Team things, we found the fun in it. Mike created spreadsheets while Brian mapped a route. Tim calculated drag coefficients and average speeds while JB pondered the caloric intake necessary for weight gain over that many miles of riding. All the while Nathan kept training outdoors through sub-zero days and snowy nights with a defiant smile. We knew we needed a name for our efforts and after many false starts, the name came to us, where else but on a bike ride.
