I've been a no show the last few times, but I will put it on my calendar. 6 weeks away and already close to 200 posts.

Six weeks to go and it was still 12 degrees out this a.m.! Brutal .... I hope you can make it!

Along with the beer, Scott is also keeping this little gem safe for me until our ride. He drove to Hyannis to pick this up from the ebay seller I bought it from last week. If you are wondering, it's an '86 Schwinn High Sierra. There's just something about a fillet brazed Schwinn, even if only partially so.

I'm getting worried I won't be in proper shape for this ride, I have a lot of catching up to do. We just lost our last dirty pile of snow .. so this weekend is some scheduled riding.

Aw, come on Scott, first ride of the season you gotta go in cold! No training and sucking wind by mile 2.

Did you get more snow this week? Or was it further north? With my lungs I suck wind at two miles when I'm in shape!

Scott,

Me too. Maybe tomorrow, but I'm just back from my road trip to Nashville and back and have buckets of church stuff to catch up on. But guess what is expected Friday-Saturday? Rain changing to sleet and freezing rain. Maybe Sunday afternoon.

Top, our ground is still covered and in places the natural snow is still 2 feet deep. The pile at the end of the driveway is still 8 feet tall and about a 30X30 foot square.

The thaw line is about 30 miles south of here; no shortage of snow with a couple or three feet of ground cover and high banks.
But my dooryard is about 6 inches deep in first-quality Maine mud, so hope is in sight.
I'm so psyched for this ride! I'm headed down to Chatham the week before as well, and will do a recon run up the OCRT, weather permitting, and get my new French fancy dialed in.
In fact, I'm getting my swap & trade box together, along with the 50cm Miyata 1000 and a very nice 52cm Shogun 500.

I'm still hoping to make it and bring along Pastor Bob's 144 BCD triplizer, which I borrowed as a pattern. Not sure what I'll ride--maybe my triplized TdF.

The snow is going fast here in Cabot. On Sunday the 31st, you could barely see the top bar of the lawn chair in our backyard, which faces south so the snow melts there first. Today it's melted almost down to the level of the seat. It's a great sight.

Isn't it crazy the things we watch as a sign of the snow disappearing! I have a bench near my gazebo that I watch. I'm also watching for a clear path down to the creek. I spotted beaver activity when I came home this evening. Never a good sign.

I need to start working on my box of trade swag. I also have a 50-52cm Univega I should unload (I'll get a better measurement). I'm tempted to ride Sporty, but it lacks in carrying capacity.

Not certain I would want to see this on the streets of Manhattan. You didn't eat what you posted about on FB that your dog ate recently?

Yucky, ugly, dirty, messy, arrrrrgggggh!!!!!! My driveway looks like a dirt path because of all the sand that was thrown down over the winter.

Really looking forward to meeting up with everyone, I'm bringing the Holdsworth that I got as a bare frame last fall. Going to put a box 'o parts together soon. That Shogun 500 and Univega bikes are my size, oh no! I need help. Pastor Bob, It would be great to see Sporty in person.

Finally! First week on the bike since early November. Had a great week riding and made it out 5 out of 7 days and logged 100 miles, which for me is fantastic! I even took a selfie today. Found this hubcap on the road. I'll bring it along but with the dirt removed and some nice polish applied!

Ben, sorry you can't make it. I'll box and ship the unicycle this week. Have had a hard time finding the best box.

Thanks! Yeah, I've never packed one of those either. Weird.
Not sure if I have a bike that would go that far. I just took all my favorite ones apart and rearranged all the pieces. They look cool but there's a lot of bugs to work out.

FYI (the Y being for plural "You"), we may not ride the tandem for this run. I posted this in the MetroBoston regional forum but not here yet. A few days ago Sharon fell and broke her arm and thumb and is now in a cast. They weren't serious breaks and nothing hurts. The cast was optional but recommended. She sees a doc tomorrow for the start of rehab. In the meantime we are being, ah, shall we say, adaptable.

So today we are going to try the tandem, perhaps on the MM. If it works okay we'll both be there for the CCRT run. If not, I'll probably ride a solo bike.
