    I was planning on the Blooming Temple Ride in several weeks, but perhaps could fit this one in as well--'specially since I won't be racing Pacebend.... 50-50 chance. The ASR will be on his silver/black Speccy Road Machine if he's out there....probably writhing on the side of the road from leg cramps before mile 40...

    hm...never heard of that ride.

    haha, i'm sure you'll be fine...especially if the weather/wind ISN'T like it was last yr!

    i'll be on a blue scattante, blue/white helmet...not sure about jersey yet, maybe the aTm one...

    Weather should be great. I might make it out to this this year. I am not doing Pace Bend either - 2 laps at race pace on that course would kill me right now.

    I've convinced myself I'm too fat to be seen on the road bike in an event and I have no business going

    good to meet you Chris. how was the rest of your ride? i ended up doing the 102...the last 25-30 was pretty tough, the freakin' wind!! ok not as windy as last yr but it definitely tired me out.

    Good meeting you too! The ride was nice, but I wish the first 8 miles would have been on a better road. Oh well, the rest of it was great.
