Thursday evening Alafia Time Trials
« on: May 13, 2008, 12:53:41 PM »
Thursday is coming up and I'm planning to be running Time Trials at Alafia, starting at 6PM.

This week will be on North Creek, and if few enough people show up we might also do Bridges or Rollercoaster.

I'd really like to have one person to help out, but can run it alone if needed.

So, who's going to be there?

Alafia is only 45 minutes from me. I just pack the car the night before, bring the bike into the building for security while I'm at work, then load it on the car and head out after work.

Heck, get there at 7PM and we'll still have an hour before they close.

You wouldn't like it.  You have to wanna work outside, wearing shorts and t-shirt.  Hang out with cool co-workers and play with kids all day.  Worst of all it comes with a six figure salary......as long as you move the decimal to the right. ;D

I bet you clean a lot of white-out off the monitors ::)

Unless some people step up tomorrow (Wednesday), it looks like I won't be doing TTs this Thursday after all.

I can leave the gear with someone if they want to run it during the club ride this Sunday. I'm taking my girlfriend to Santos instead, since North Creek is still above her skill level and she can only ride Sandpine and Riverloop so much before getting bored of them.
