after seeing the terrain there - I am totally wanting to go do a road ride on the roads of Clemont

Mk and a few others have expressed interest as well.

look at your calender and see when is a good time to hit the roads with you over there

I would love a R2 tour de clermont

i will look over my calendar and pull up a date soon. will also go out and make a map file (so you can print a cue sheet or use a GPS) so anyone of any speed/ability can ride without fear of getting lost.

i need feedback on distance and pace/effort. that will help me with route planning.

also, with two City Parks being very close by, a cookout can be had easily. if anyone is interested.

let me know.

i can make it a tour, a torture fest, fast and flat, all the "big hills", a combo of all the aforementioned... there are nearly limitless possibilities out this way.... 20 miles, 50 miles, 150 miles.... what is your poison?

60-70 miles with all the big hills. anything less would be uncivilized.

i have mapped a route around 65 miles. check it out.

SP, I will only charge you $20 to show up to my event.... and since the park (start/finish) is within site of my house, i might let you take a shower too...  for an extra fee, of course.

No date set..... yet

I have done zero fast riding on a mtb - just limited endurance training - no way am I in shape for any FSC races - so I am going to do the attack on the sugar
