    Heads up!

    Waterford will hold it's August Factory Ride tomorrow (August 18), with factory tours from 8-8:30 AM. We roll at 9. Loops range from 20-65 miles, with the long route taking your through Lake Geneva, Williams Bay and Fontana to Walworth, where we head back. We'll finish up with a cookout from 11:30-1:30 back at the shop. Helmets and waivers are required, cell phones are recommended, but there is no charge.

    see: http://waterfordbikes.com/w/culture/factory-rides

    I've done this ride twice in the past. It's a great ride and the roads are gently rolling with good scenery.

    See you tomorrow!

    Thanks for the heads up. Can't make that ride, but the October 6 ride is a possibility...

    I see that preliminary results are up. My friend, that I would have ridden with, placed #5 in his age group.

    Judging by bib numbers, some of the C&V crowd is MIA.

    Anyone up for a whole lot of pain in SW Wisconsin in August?

    Cool. Just might get to the Waterford ride. Thats a quick drive up to Wisconsin. I could use some different scenery on my Saturday morning ride.

    Just got back from the cabin (headed straight there after the ride). The DD was a great ride. I think it is safe to say a good time was had by all. I especially want to thank Rob and his family for hosting, and making us feel like honored guests. Also need to thank IAB for planting the idea and getting this going. He also receives the balls of steel award for riding some of those descents on wooden rims. For me, perhaps the 200 next year (I think a year is adequate advanced notice).

    Looking to next year and meeting up again. Still need to look at the event pics, but just wanted to send thanks and second how fun it was to meet everyone.

    Don't tell anyone, but I'm still out on the course.

    Jonn, hope to see you at a ride soon!

    I can't find the results either. Post a link....

    I'm just relieved that the guys in my age group who beat me, beat me by more (way more) than the time I spent chatting up the cheerleaders at the Dodge Park rest stop.

    I'm also glad to see that Tristin, a young ex-Marine who is training for the Wisconsin IronMan and provided delightful riding company on the outer fringes of the 200 km after we happened to fall in together leaving a rest stop, finished his planned 250 km. In good time too.

    Did my first real ride (not commuting) since last week. Same old 40-mile loop. Only a minute off of a PR.

    How anticlimactic.

    I rode the Waterford ride today. Nice ride. I knew one of the guys there, and the Wheeling Wheelmen had several members present. Nice guys. I'm not good at hills, and there were a few good ones. Richard Schwinn does the sag job and checks in with you along the route. Can't beat it for a free ride. Lunch after the ride too.

    OK, my enthusiasm for the Dairyland Dare and its hosts was so infectious that Mrs. Conspiratemus (the woman I "breathe together" with) took the bait and agreed to join me (and I hope all of you) for the 2013 running. We'll be bringing our tandem which will not be C&V though, except that it does use a downtube shifter (friction no less...) for the front derailleur. We have reserved a room already at the Mineral Point Hotel to cement the deal.

    The gauntlet is thrown down hereby.

    As some of you know, she was in the Canadian far-northern territory of Nunavut for 10 days on business while I was at large in Wisconsin. She will bring some photos and stories.

    I'm in for 2013. I s/w the photographer(s), and they're getting the photos together and are going to burn them to a CD and send it to me. I'll get copies, after that, out to the masses. Also, looking for suggestions for next year (by PM) With school starting the next week, Mrs. RT will likely not come, but I've got a couple of guys who are interested in coming from NC, which would make the drive much easier.

    I would love to go back so I could actually ride with you guys.

    Totally fun just meeting everyone though and well worth the trip, so I would recommend this to all types of riders.

    Lots to see and do in the area and Madison is a very short drive from the ride area.

    Fun bike shops in Madison make it worth the drive and State Street is great for dining and people watching.

    Can't go wrong.

    We will have to see what my spouse has in store for next summer before I commit, as she has been mentioning a return to Europe to visit her family.

    Time will tell.
