|Oh yes. Looking forward to it. Weather is supposed to be nice as well. Several friends from Indy coming down but I heard there won't be any camping at Cascades. Of course being a local I'll stay at home. I rode part of the Saturday loop this morning; a little chilly but a fine ride indeed. If this is your first ride you will enjoy it. The fall colors look really nice right now. Color everywhere. Ah all is good in Btown!|

|Have fun!!! I hope 4bykn reads this post...he is going to be there too. You guys should hook up. I just sold my ticket, though I'm quite tempted to go. Its no use. My knees better now, but I only have double on the bike--I fear I'd need more. Well, there's always next year!
I checked the weather report and you guys are gonna have great weather. 70's on Saturday. Have a blast!!
-Till next year!

|Sold your ticket? You just show up the day of the ride and pay the one day fee and ride. Put the biggest cassette on you can get and go!!|

|...the biggest cassette I got is 12-23. Not gonna cut it. My knee is just healed, and I don't think I could spin all those hills in 23x39. I'd probably re-injure it. Grrrr... I did want to go though!
Nope, I should save my pennies for that new frame, then show up next year and kick butt! Are you going to be there?

|We'll miss ya' Kristin. Maybe drink one in your honor, but it won't be a mudslide, only beer at my campsite! See you in the spring?|

|Used to live 2 hours south of Chicago in a corn field. No longer. But I had done the hilly a few years back and just relating my experience for that day. I showed up, paid and rode. Lots of folks on MTB's that could not hold a line to save their life and wanted to go like hell down the hills.|
|I'll be there!||4bykn|

|I'm in, and there better be camping available, since I bought a camping pass! Anybody is welcome to stop by the campground and say hi, look for the black Ford F-150 with my screen name on the plates. Ask for Mike.|| |
