Double dippin at the HOLE
« on: April 20, 2008, 10:46:12 PM »
Me and the energizer bunny plan to ride the main loop twice Tuesday night. We plan to roll out at 5:30 riding a quick pace with minimal stops. Fellow riders welcome.

You don't need a light to double dip Tuesday.  Just show up to ride out at 5:30 to do 2 laps by 8:30.  More like 5 actually if you want to do your 2nd lap with the main swamp group.  See you all there.

Speaking of lights, has anyone seen any lite deals out there? I see plases selling the dual blackburn X9 set for $100. Anybody use one? From what I read they are supposed to be well built but the battery run time is in questionable. Stated 4+ hours actual 1 to 2?

Marcel is correct! You will just need to bring your bike and your legs!!  It helps to wear something pink though ;) :).

In the meantime, I can lend you a 10 watt for Thursday, so don't let that stop you. :)

I'm planning on doing the Thursday night ride and may be going over during the day also to get in a few extra miles before the night ride.   ;D

I double dipped this morning...  31.5 miles 12.9mph average, if you need something to shoot for. Pushing big nevegals didn't help.  Everything very dry and clear, have fun tonight.
