I'll be there on my Flight 29'er.  If its OK my wife may be riding with me on her 3x9, but she rides slow so its like she's on an SS. :o  So if you guys can't handle all of the drivetrain noise, she'll ride with me :)

To clarify: this will not be a slow ride.

It was hot as hell... I had to back off the intensity and quit after 1 lap...

You bet.  I will also be there double dipping today.  Maybe I can get my 40 this time.  1GWed will only be one lap for me.

The route I usually follow is:

In through the hole> gatorbait> indian> grandpa> techno pig> washboard> heartbreak> main trail> panther> squiggy>l evee>main>  levee> bayshore> coconut grove> hole

Hope to see you all there!

that's a whole lot of trail for me.  I may sit these out until I'm able to keep up better.

If I ride the loop with no extra trails thrown in it takes about 3 hours for me.  I really don't want to hold everyone back.

Me and a couple of other people will probably be at hole in the fence tomorrow trying to get a ride in (if it stays dry)

Keep at it Dave! You may want to show up to a fast group ride once in a while and give it everything you have...it will make you faster...really.

Yeah, I definitely don't mind working harder to get faster, but I just feel really bad about holding everyone up at my pace.

I'll ride some shorter rides with you guys until I can keep up more, then I'll be better on the long ones.

Actually, I just thought, what I may do is ride with you guys from hole in the fenct to Heartbrake ridge.  Then I can turn around and go back while you guys carry on.  Maybe I'll do that next week!

Ugh...missed another full week of riding.  I have the virus that seems to be going around (sore throat, congestion, throbbing headache, etc) so I'm down and out for a bit.  Hopefully I can get a ride in this weekend or at least be good to go for a couple weekday rides next week.  :(

Second that.  But I'll still alternate so only one day a week at WTA for me.  It was a fun fast ride today.  I'll bring a fresher pair of legs to the next one.
