Anyone doing the Seagull century in MD on Oct 13?look271

I'll be there, usually with a large group from our area. Doing it on my fixie (my 1st "fixed" century.) Should be fun. If ever there was a course designed for a ss/fixie, this has got to be it.
Yup, I'll be there. I might do it on my fixie as well....Gregory Taylor

I'm thinking of changing the gearing from 46 x 16 up to 52 x 16. I like to be able to keep up...
It's on the 12th, not the 13th (Saturday, not Sunday), isn't it?bill

I'll be there. Hopefully on Taylor's wheel.
It's the 12th. By the way....Gregory Taylor

...Bill is the co-holder of the Team Lardbutt "Fastest Seagull" last year. Four hours, twenty-two or three minutes ride time, if I'm not mistaken...
Yep, you're right. My bad.look271

It'll be at least 10th for me, too. Gotta gear up, too. Running a 42 X17. Think I'll go to a 15.

Anymore I feel compelled to do it in order not to break the series. Its gotten too crowded and expensive IMO. I don't have a fixie (been toying with getting one for the winter), but I'd worry about riding with all those cyclists with questionable riding skills. Guess if you have brakes, it would be OK.

Doing the Potomac Pedaler's ride this Sunday? Its bound to be a good one unless it rains. Despite the drought, I hope not -- already missed the Bay Country because of the onmly rain storm in 2 months around here. Worse -- I'd paid for my wife and I in advance!
