Anyone available to ride Wed. afternoon?
« on: November 02, 2009, 01:27:55 PM »
It is an early release day (schools, not prison) and I am trying to get a ride together.  I am willing to run Alafia OR Boyette.  If you don't know me, I run about a 8-9 mph avg. (not fast) and ride everything in either park.  I take lots of "breathers" in between and usually try to get 12-15 miles in.  I can get out of work around 2:30 and meet up at either park at 3:00.  Any takers?

I would like to clarify.  I "TRY" to ride everything in the parks.  I can't clean all the climbs on Gatorback or Moonscape.

I'm interested. I won't be there since I'll still be at work then. But I'd rather be there if I really had a choice in the matter.

I think you mean I'm the "Sandman", because my riding puts most people to sleep!

To give you an idea.  Most times Kenny rides with me, he rides again, AFTER we ride together.  I'm not a good enough workout apparently.  Rode with a guy on Sunday who rode 16 miles before I left the parking lot.  I never heard him breathe on the way out to Ridgeline.  I told him to lead on Ridgeline ....and never saw him again!

You should have broken his ribs. That would have slowed him down to say...63% or so. :o

No, I would have had to pull a Tanya Harding on is * to slow him down.

I can be out there but 4:30 is typically the earliest I can make it. Alafia is a great place to meet up since the parking lot is so accessible so let me know if you'd like more company. Buddy of mine is supposed to get back with me if he can go but if not I'm not gonna roll out there solo unless you'd like to meet up around the mentioned time frame. I just don't get much enjoyment out of solo rides.

If you bonk, and no one is around, does it count?  :D

It didn't count a week ago, when I bonked by myself on the double track out of Boyette!

Catman, I don't know how many miles I'll end up doing, but I may be up for more riding depending on my condition.  I can't speak for Kenny, but if he shows, his endurance is WAYYY better than mine!
