    I'll make many of them. Should be there this tuesday, depending on what the doctor says. I planned on going last week, but the weather was too unsettled to make that drive.

    I've seen this one on the bikereg. How far is it from NY, and can I get there using NJ Transit?
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    'NJ Transit'? Oh, I don't think you understand. Think this mode of transport for Augusta Crassic:



    Augusta is deep in the Sussex Outback pal. Ooofaaaa. It's 35 miles from here, I'm in bumfck NY and it's close to me. Takes me 45-50 mins to drive there on back roads.

    it's typically six of one/half dozen of another for me re: highway vs. backroads. 80 is brutal in the afternoon.

    It's really not that bad of a shot from here, but those Rockleigh crits are about the same amount of drive time for me.

    If you don't do Rockleigh I'm starting a petition to make you grow hair on your legs and I'm buying you a helmet mirror.

    You don't need a petition, I'm doing that anyway. Besides I'd be in the 'B' race. It's faster/cheaper to just ride my bike to the Shop Rite in Chester and ride 25mph into a wall.

    I'll worry about other races if and when I can finish in the field in the NY Spring Series. Baby steps g.

    The B race at rockleigh will be slower, much slower, than the master SS race. And from a tactical and suffering standpoint you will learn important stuff that will help you survive better in faster races.

    That said, I likely won't be there except to spectate (we watched almost every one last year). Too hard an effort in the tiny A race with 4 races between saturday and sunday.

    I felt surprisingly good on my bike yesterday riding with the swollen mouth and all. I'll be back training this week, out there again on Sunday. I may go to Augusta tomorrow night, we'll see how the week unfolds.

    ive been thinking about coming up for one of them.. Its a bit of a drive for me tho.
    If I was as good at racing bikes as I am at racing cars youd all be in for a world of hurt!

    Haha, I just realized it was a much longer drive for me than I thought it was.

    Bleh.

    I'm more worried about he Cat 5 idiots bringing down the bunch with their pack riding ineptitude more than anything else. You can puke on me and my bike for all I care. I think that's the idea. If I can get you to puke, I'm doing something right. It will be easier to ride on the front or animate and get in a break in the B race of course. So that's something right there.
