    I overslept.

    I saw Batman Begins last night at 10:50 and ended up not getting home until almost 2AM only to realize that I had no clean cycling clothes. So off to throw a load of laundry in the wash. Set my alarm for 3AM to throw it in the dryer (no way it'll air-dry by 6AM). Actually woke up at 3AM and threw it in. Then set the alarm for 6AM.

    Next thing I knew, it was 6:50AM and I live 30 minutes away from the ride start. Bummed and disappointed, I ended up going on my own ride, doing El Tour de Soufside as I rode from my house near Palo Alto College over towards Brooks City Base then north to the near eastside where I hooked up with Gravy's Saturday Morning Breakfast ride crew throwing down nopalitos and juevos rancheros at a hole in the wall taqueria at Hackberry & Durango. From there it was up to Bike World- Broadway for the finish of their ride. A couple of gauntlets up Torcido (my pennance for missing 211) and over to Olmos Park before heading back home.

    Got in about 30 minutes ago and damn, it's getting hot out there. No sippy sip of the race fuel this time!

    Sorry I missed y'all but glad to hear it was a good ride/decent turn-out.

    And welcome to the team Bikerchic!

    Wish I'd seen ya Bikerchic. I was still signing waivers and getting my jersey when everyone took off. Was listening for the music but I guess George just couldn't make it. Austin ( My son ) enjoyed the ride. About two miles from the finish he was jabbering away but when I rolled in at the finish he was sleeping. I missed the turn on to 211 and didn't realize it until 1.5 miles later so I ended up riding a little over 29 miles. 211 wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I was able to stay away from the third chainring but my speed did drop below 10 MPH a couple of times. The worst was that hill after we turned off of 211 on to 16. I almost had to use the granny gear there. That trailer felt like it was dragging me backwards and my heart just about jumped out of my chest.

    I had a good time, though.

    Austin sure likes riding in the trailer but I think it's going to kill me. Gotta find a way to keep him from gaining weight or at least lose a few more pounds of my own.

    that's cool that you and your son enjoyed the ride it was kinda tough (well the hilly part and then that last big hill...on 16??) i ended up riding w/ a nice lady and asked her if there was actually a steep hill on the route that was 7 miles long! she laughed...she corrected me and said there are 7 miles of steep hills, NOT one hill that is 7 miles long!!! uh, who here got this wrong?!

    missed meeting ya too. well, maybe we could have identified each other but i had some problems starting out...well, i got there RIGHT when the ride started (yeah, late ) and already had a flat starting out!!! rode w/ 2 riders from SA that were there not for the MS150 but just doing their usual 26 mile ride....so we started after 7 am (not sure exactly what time) so i'm pretty sure you were already done w/ the ride WAY before me! i signed up w/ the MS150 after i got back.

    you going to Mojofest? doing the 30 mile road ride Sat?

    Wouldn't miss it. We're taking the new travel trailer and staying at Potter's Creek. I plan on doing the 30 mile ride (without the trailer) so maybe I can get back in time to do a lap on the MTB.

    See you there,

    I'm in a little dilemma on what t to do I want to do the MS150 like last year but I also want to do conquer the coast also. I can do both but I need some help in accomplishing this. day 1 is part 1 of the ms 150 ride this is when the conquer the coast is on, if I do this one I can meet up at the end of the day point but I need to figure out how to get my car back to Corpus to go back home here in San Antonio. If there is any one who can get me some info on how to do this it will be great.

    Damn! Man, I can't believe they would schedule both for the same weekend! I was so looking forward to Conquer the Coast again. All I can say at this point is that you're not alone in your dilemna and if it goes anything like the Spring '05 STORM race, the Conquer the Coast officials are foolish to think their participation levels won't take a significant hit by allowing this conflict to remain.

    I've sent a polite letter to the event organizers asking them if there is anyway to reconsider the date set for it while there is still plenty of time, but admittedly, it's a long shot at best. Otherwise, I'm going to have to miss Conquer the Coast. And I know I'm not alone in that decision.

    Yep, if I still get to go, it'll be the MS ride. They could schedule it against a TMBRA event and not take much, if any, of a hit the next weekend. They will probably take a hit competing against the 150 for sure.

    Subject: MS150 Event conflict?!!!?!!!


    Ms. Arnold, Ms. Massey, Mr. Bertuzzi:

    I have to say I am supremely disappointed that I won't be able to participate in this year's Conquer the Coast. After riding in it last year (and bringing 5 other riders with me from San Antonio), I promised myself that I would participate in the event for as long as it was held. I simply enjoyed it that much. Staying at the Omni and attending Bay Fest only added to the mini-vacation-like weekend. And as if that weren't enough, riding the causeways and through the strong coastal headwind provided great tune-up training for the following week's MS150 Bike to the Beach. But therein lies the problem. As Team Captain for Team Bike Mojo, the largest non-corporate team at Bike to the Beach, I simply can't be at both places at the same time and must reluctantly miss this year's Conquer the Coast. And I know I'm not alone.

    With over 3000 riders expected at Bike to the Beach, I can't begin to imagine how this scheduling conflict will adversely affect your event's participation levels. As the financial officer for the STORM Texas Hill Country Mountain Bike
    Challenge, a 600 participant race that is part of the Texas Mountain Bike Racing Association's Spring Championship Race Series), I know firsthand the Herculean effort it takes to hold a successful race and more so, appreciate the external factors that can make or break an event. This year, our race was unfortunately scheduled the same weekend as the Houston to Austin MS150 and our participation levels reflected that. As a result, our revenue from the event was down significantly and our club realized the smallest profit margin in club history- a difficult position in which to fund our philanthropic activities and programs. As a result, TMBRA has promised to coordinate with both MS150 events in the future in setting up its Spring and Fall race schedules and I sincerely hope your organization will do the same. Ultimately, I would hate to see the future of Conquer the Coast threatened by lower participation numbers this year as is bound to happen.

    Consequently, I implore your organization to reconsider the event date currently set for 2005 while there is still time to successfully reschedule and hope that it could be organized so that the many riders like myself who are committed to the Bike to the Beach can also once again Conquer the Coast.

    With sincere respect and gratitude, I remain,


    -George E. Longoria

    George, thanks for your comments, Our event has to be the same week end
    as bay fest. That's one of the requirements of the city of corpus
    Christi. Last year, when we had the flexibility to move the date of bay
    fest and our ride, the MS people were not willing to talk with us. At
    this point we will just have to see how it turns out.

    So it seems like Conquer the Coast will have a much smaller turn-out this year. I just hope the organizers don't take that as a sign of defeat and hang it up in 2006.
