RBR Gathering...Harrisburg, PA...(12 posts)

Sunday was a great day for the RBR gathering near Harrisburg, PA. It was the first weekend without rain in months for the mid-atlantic.

"KG 361" set up a century route for us. "MB1" and Ms. M came up from D.C. for the weekend. I drove out for the day from NJ.

Introductions:

MB1 (does he really need an intro?)


Ms M (most photographed non-RBR member)


I assume one of them will post a pic of me.

The day started out with a little haze which burned off quickly. Temps got into the high 80's with a good bit of humidity. The roads were in great shape. Little to no traffic for most of the day.

Over the shoulder shot:




We had the roads to ourselves:

During a pit stop, this interesting fellow landed on my bars:


Stop sign??? What stop sign??? I could have sworn I heard MB1 say, "F&*$ the police!" as he rode through the intersection. :-)


MB1 and I get a laugh when we realize we are taking pictures of each other taking pictures:


I'm getting the perfect leadout by the RBR train"

MB1 keeps a close eye on KG361 tightening his bottle cage down:

MB1 was sporting his RBR socks from a previous gathering. Now I have my own RBR goodies. Thanks Gregg!!!


MB1 often posts dinner shots after rides. I got home just in time to join my family and friends for dinner at "Uno's". My son, who turned 1 YO on Saturday will eat just about anything you put in front of him. The lemons offer some comedic value for the rest of us. He eventually started eating the peel so we had to take it away.
wow KG 361... i believe that's the worst fit i've ever seen (nm)YoungRcR

Mostly KG 361 rode on the tops since he was taking it fairly easy on us. He looked pretty good in the drops as he pulled into the wind.
Works for me.KG 361

I can ride (almost) all day in complete comfort-usually at 16-17mph on all kinds of terrain. Wanna piece of me? (I'm KIDDING ok?! =)-At least about the "piece of me part") BTW-I'm probably old enough to be your dad.

really, we all gotta pull sometime, eh?

come on, what's with tha sandbaggin'?

ok, i'm watching you for future reference.

i'd suggest 3x5 intervals and checking over your shoulder (to make sure you're not dropping el J).

I had planned on it, but had "moving" obligations to attend to. Looks like the 4 of you had a good ride and MB1 and Miss M didn't drop anyone!

Maybe we can have another one near the end of summer :)

Happy Riding.
