I might try to make my maiden voyage with the club tomorrow evening, of course it all depends on the weather.  I'm supposed to have a softball game in Hyde Park so if that gets rained out and the weather is tolerable up here I'll try and make it.

We been getting about 30 or 40 on tuesdays now.  I'll be there for sure.  If it is like today, go there anyway.  The rain usually stops by 6pm and then it is a great ride at that time.

It did rain just north of there for most of the evening. Last tuesday we rode in the drizzle, it really felt great.

I've got some problems with my right eye that is keeping me from wearing a contact lens in that eye...


...I might just ride anyway. Who needs periferal vision and depth perception, right? :o

I hope to make it out tonight as well.  I need to stop off and buy a new seat before I go though... With all the rain I haven't left the house much over the last few days!  lol

Scooter, he gets there at 4:30 or earier and rides his road bike for 20 or his MTB for 10.

I think he is obsessed! Oh wait me too! ;D

I just got back from Alafia, and I will be there tonight too! :)

Bionic Bunny,
Get it right will you....  On tuesdays I normally do 20 road miles then join the swamp group ride for another (not "or") 18 or so MTB miles.  All that road riding you doing is making you not think streight now...

Unfortunally, I don't think mother nature will let me get those road miles today.  So it will be all 30+ mtb miles even if I have to ride under the rain in 2 feet of water.  LOL.... I am dieing to get out there... can I go now?  dam work calls....  who needs to work?.... oh wait, my kid sneed to be fed. I better go work now....   ;D ;D ;D

Both of you need a break from the freakin bikejournal mile count and just ride and learn more skills in mtb and forget the road.
Easy for me to say ;D ;D ;D I dont have a road bike. :'( :'( :'( All I can do is trash talk to road bike owners :P :P :P

For clarification.......As I said. Sometimes Marcel will show up at about 4:30 if the weather is good he will get on his road bike and ride 20 miles before the regular hole in the fence ride. For a total of somewhere between 38 and 40 miles. OR he may show up at 4:30 and ride about 10 miles prior to the regular hole in the fence ride for a total of 28 to 30 miles. Hence his statment about getting 30 to 40 miles on Tuesdays. He has been doing this for quite a while.  ;)

Is that clear enough Marcy? I think everyone else knew what I meant, but all of that riding has cut off some blood supply. Weenie.

Morrison, my issue is not my moutain bike skills, but my cardio, and my fat ass. There is no better way to get in better biking shape than to be on a bike.  ;D 


Sharky, the seat is great but kinda expensive.

Now I need to go back to work. :)
