What's your ride tomorrow?MXL02
Jun 21, 2002 10:29 AM
I am sitting here Friday pm, and can't wait for my Saturday ride...65 miles over beautiful rolling terrain. I haven't done a big ride in three weeks and I cannot wait. How about everyone else?

This is my long weekend off!! Friday 50 miles, Sat. another 50, and Sunday my big ride, as far as my legs will take me!! Oh, I now have to work both Friday and Sat. I remember what someone said once. When you work for someone else, you give your life to them.

What about some hills? We really didn't climb enoughMB1
Jun 21, 2002 3:07 PM
last weekend. I'm thinking you will be fine for the Tour De Montes but the second day is going to be something of a shock.

I always remember the first climb on the third day as a tough one. Miss M thinks the third climb the second day is the one.

I'll probably do the last 50 miles Sunday in a 53X13 at about 60RPM, doing some strength work at about 19mph. It's the best I can do at simulating hills.

I probably will bring the triple for the Tour. I'd rather have too many low gears as opposed to not enough.

Looking forward to it.

Singletrack for me. : )Sintesi

Big fun at Graham Hills, upstate NY. Sunday will be 60-70 miles up and down 9-W in Jersey, that is if I don't get killed on Saturday. ; )

We ride to a restaurant called Antioch which has a great bikers breakfast. It has beautiful roads, even though traffic is starting to get heavier. It is in Florida, therefore it gets HOT and HUMID. This ride is approximately 60 miles.

If we win, I still have a job and can afford to ride; if we lose I will be able to do lots of riding but may be a little poorer.

In the meantime, I will get my inspiration from you guys and do some virtual riding...

Then maybe another 20 with whoever wants to keep going. I haven't planned a route but have 60-70 in mind for Sunday.
130 miles thru Va and WVa mountains ...Humma Hah

... in a Ford Explorer.

The "new" '74 Paramount is just a frame and fork, needs a pile of parts. The cruiser is laid up with a busted coasterbrake (original part, 31 years old and 25,000 miles). The MTB is parked at the far end of the 130 mi ride, and I'll be lucky if I get to ride it for 5 miles this weekend.

I am seriously skunked on riding this week!

I have a mtb ride tomorrow with a buddy, lots of vertical and singletrack.
Sunday is a small group (6) out through the Canyon to the Berkeley Hills, around the countryside back to civilization. Should be a good one, about 60+ miles and lots of hills.

Still torn, a local 42 mile "training" hard ride with whatever roadies aren't racing, or mtb at the site of next weekend's race to dial in my f/s bike and refamiliarize myself with the course. Can't decide which will be most beneficial for the race performance.

My name's Rob Heather and I'll be wearing my TT jersey and riding a dark blue KHS. I'll probably start at the back of the pack and let the hotshots duke it out in front.

No sex tonight as I'll be camping out with my riding buddies Jeff and Mark.

Have fun and be careful.

Knee warmers, arm warmers, Blue Camelback Rocket.
Maybe a green windbreaker if the night fog rolls in again.

Logan, Utah. Tomorrow is up the canyon for about 12 miles. The only real problem is keeping everybody from breaking out the fly rods half way up.

Then Sunday is the north end of Cache Valley.

I hope the wind dies down and the temp is under 90 this year. Last year it was 95 plus and a 25 mph headwind for the last 35 miles.

More fun than you should be allowed to have with clothes on.
Around 50 miles or so...Slowclimber

Not sure where I'm going yet though. I want to see how I feel right now at that distance as I'm contemplating a century next weekend (my first).

About 80 miles of hills. I'm trying to get ready for the Death Ride next month.

Tomorrow I'll be going over Mt. Rose (4000+ ft) down the other side to Incline, then a bit more. Then back over Rose (another 2500+ft) then back.

Should be fun.

Have a good ride tomorrow!

My ride tomorrow is an organized 100 miler, its the
Ron Kitching memorial ride around the vale of York area
in England, should be a blast, it even takes in the
rather pleasant 1:4 climb of White Horse bank, last time
I did this climb I had to get off half way up and walk.
But this time I am prepared, I have a 27-12 cassette.
Should be a large group of riders hopefully, with lots
a climbing and chatting, so I cant wait. Only thing is
the weather reports all say rain, oh well, once you are
wet you cant get any wetter.

Most of the time ~200 racers, super fast, long, hard. Excellent trainer. I don't do it too often, but tomorrow it's on.
Nothing special.MB1
Jun 21, 2002 3:12 PM
Saturday we are going to meet a friend who is leading a century that should have some climbing. We are riding to the ride so we should get about 140 miles.

Sunday we will putz around on the Single Speeds in the morning. In the afternoon we are going dancing (of course we will bike there). In the evening we will ride over to the Washington Monument for a picnic and the free concert by the Marine Corps Band. Probably 80 miles.

A fairly normal weekend for us.

Shuck, Mark, I thought you always tried to get in at least ONE 150-200 mile ride each weekend!

I've got the guys over in the Retro forum helping me scrounge parts for the Paramount. Might have a crankset available if I can verify the thing actually fits, and I think I may have found an older Campy clincher front wheel (36-spoke and no skewers) for $25.

Far and away my longest effort this year. Planning on about 63 miles, even though I've been stood up by a friend ;)
