Cure on Wheels new 40 mile mountain bike race
« on: July 30, 2010, 09:22:51 AM »
Cure on Wheels is having their 3rd annual bike challenge at Flatwoods in Nov and have added a 20 and 40 mile mountain bike race.  It's been a long time since I've been out on the trails but was thinking of doing the 40 mile.  Was curious if any Swampers out there were thinking of or planning on doing the race?  I want to get out and ride a couple times a week to prepare and thought I'd try to hook up with others who might also be "training".  Thanks!  Dana

Dana,
Talk to Gregg or Becky (both swampers) who are organizing the mtb CoW ride that day.  Next Sunday is the swamp club ride at Trout Creek. They will do a lot of those trails that will be use for that ride.

Is this a race or a ride?

I missed that "race" part.. yes is a RIDE ...   But as with any other RIDE (like Tour of Felasco, IDIDARIDE, CROOM 50) is a race..   well amongst us of course.  LOL

There is century road ride at the same time.  If I go, I might do the century instead.  I ride flatwoods dirt too much aleady.

I would be interested in the ride! Don't think I would make the 40 mile, but the 20 I could handle! I think??

Yes, sorry it is a "ride" and not a "race" but I still kinda see it that way and I want to do my best of course.  Can't hide that competitive streak in me  :)   With COW you do have to raise a minimum of $250 for the ride which isn't a big deal.  I looked into Team in Training initially but they only allow you on the team if you are doing the Century or Metric.  I'm just not much for riding on the road (no offense to those that do).  Plus the $1000 minimum for fund raising seemed daunting for my first stab at it.  I really did like the "team" aspect though which is why I posted.  If others are doing it we can ride/train together and then do the ride together too.  Thought it'd be fun.

I'm up for it. Let me know when you want to train. I'm out at Boyette a lot, but wouldn't mind riding Wilderness Trails a couple times.

First I can get out is Sunday - not sure what people's schedules are like.  I work full time, have 2 kids and husband (who is currently out of town til Sat night thus can't ride til Sunday).  But I'm up for going anywhere.  I see Sun ride is 9am at boyette which I can do!  Maybe I will see you there?
