I'll be visiting family in Vacaville/Davis this Memorial Day weekend. Wondering if there are any group rides/planned rides this Sunday/Monday? Thanks!!

It'd be fun to do Mt Hamilton RR on a whim, but I don't have the time available to ride back to the car
Anyone doing it, still awake and checking bf, and have spare room on the drive back?
... drive back?
ride back is tradition.
Eh, would have been fun but a bit too painful for second ride after a week off. Climbed Kings today instead and was super slow.
Dash for Cash tomorrow! Prime every lap sounds exciting... I might actually try to win a prime for once.
Everyone get your stories in order of when you raced against him..

Anyone race Pesky? I worked registration.

I opted out of Pesadero. Didn't have the heart for that race right now.
Folsom Historic Crit and Nevada City or TriValley Crit this weekend...who's doing what?
Not too thrilled about the course for the Folsom Historic crit, but I won a free entry and it's a mile from home, so I can't pass that up. I think I'll be skipping out of Nevada City though.
Its about a mile up the road from the usual Folsom crit course and is pretty bland out and back with a 180 at one end and a round-a-bout at the other. They were initially planning for a course in old town with some short punchy hills, but having the tour of california take over may have been one bike event too many for the year. It sounds like they may have the old town course up next year.
I'm doing Tri Valley as well, because it's close and I can race twice. I'm somehow 4th in the cat 4 omnium because other people skip so many races.
Well I am back from bumming around the Pakistan on motorcycle for three weeks.
The good news is that I wasn't kidnapped by Taliban.
The bad news I crashed motorcycle there about two weeks ago. I had an appointment with ortho today. I have a fractured clavicle and possible tear in rotary calf. The MRI on Monday will confirm the latter. So no racing until July at the earliest, and no intense riding on the bike until late June. I am still hopping to do 4th of July Crit.
The biggest risk if I crash I could displace the fracture and then it's surgery, and even longer recovery. Doctor said I probably shouldn't ride at all, otherwise there is a chance it will take longer to heal. So choice is loose even more fitness by not riding and trying to regain it back, or try to keep some kind of fitness but might take longer to get back to racing. I guess I'll be a 4 for another season.
It could have been much worse. I believe armor in my jacket saved the shoulder, and my boots saved my foot from heavy laceration and broken bones. The boot has a deep cut going through the leather and all the layers. On a foot I just had a small nick, and some bruising.
