There is a pretty good ride out in Maryland this weekend -- the Bay Country Century. Anybody here going?

I'll be there with my wife. We try to do it every year. Seems like its rained the last 3 years in a row. At least there is no hurricane threat.

Did you do the Reston last weekend? That's a nice ride. I was so exhausted from moving over the past week that I bailed and slept in on Sunday.

Potomac Peddlers puts on a good century in September also.
Naaah....didn't do RestonGreg Taylor

Did it one year, and haven't felt compelled to do it again. The guys that I ride with always do one or two organized centuries in September as a sort of "tune up" for the Seagull in October. We usually get everyone out for that...

If you pass a bunch of guys wearing "Team Lardbutt" jerseys, go ahead and shout "on your left" and wave, because that will be us.

You are right about the rain -- and they are calling for at least a "chance" of rain on Saturday.
I've seen you lardbutt guyspmf

at a bunch of centuries.

You should do the Reston next year. Its a good century. Lots of hills.

I'll be doing the Seagull for the 9-th year in a row this year. First century I ever did. I've got every number. Its gotten so crowded and expensive in the past few years. Its really kind of a lousy ride. Flat and ugly. I wish it weren't so late in the year. But sentimental reasons keep bringing me back every year.

Maybe I'll see you at the hotdog stand on Saturday afternoon. I recall watching it pour when I got there last year. We bailed and did the metric. The year before was even worse. Lets hope it stays dry this year.
Is that in Baltimore?NTChrisVedral
