Yeah - I see what you're looking at. I was looking at the Clyde club, as in the members that list the Clyde club as their primary club. Howard's primary club is Club Hypoxia, so I don't see how he can be the Clydesdale leader?

I'm looking at Clubs--->Club Home, which shows the home of your specified primary club (in my case Clydesdales). It shows the leader board as it pertains to the members claiming Clydesdales as their primary club.

You're #2 there, followed by Pickled_Loaf, ScrubJ, kipmilam, and me. I like that one better....

Yea I can go with that too. In fact I am getting ready to head out on my first ride with my 700x28's. Been raining today and the roads are a little wet so I am going to circle the neighborhood tonight for 19 laps or 15 miles. Very boring going around a .8 mile oval. I have to take it easy and see how I like the small tires compared to my 700x38's I have been riding.

Well my primary Club is RBC but I did join the Clydes. I am in the 14th slot. More miles? We're working on it!

How about super-clydes the 300+ crowd!

Once you get adapted to the skinny tires ride, I suspect you'll love them!

I know I am rare in the biking world, but I love riding in a warm rain.

The threat of a freezing rain today however put me on MTA. That always makes me mindful of how much nicer a bike ride to work is than an hour+ of forced "quality-time" with my fellow man. Really makes one doubt Darwin sometimes.

Warm rain is fine, last nights rain was just cool enough and light enough to make the road very slippery. Thunderstorms today so I'm waiting for the road to dry up just a little and I will take a ride.

My employeer has a deal where they pay the membership cost at the YMCA right near my office. My lower body is defining quite nicely, but I need to work on my upper body more so I decided to take advantage of the weights room there and work on my upper body for 30 to 45 mins and then ride for an 1 to 1.5 hours. Damn this getting in shape thing is becoming a habit. .

Might want to re-think the mileage goal for the club total. 3 months into 2007, and we've already passed the halfway point to 20,000 miles.

Added my 150 miles. As has been noted, you may want to rethink goals. Right now we are at 12,541. Should we shoot for 100,000?

Spinner Saturday is sitting at almost 17000 out of our 50K goal as well! Looks like both groups are cranking some miles out! Keep it up guys and our combined miles could reach lunar orbit!

edit: Just thought of above, and it's actually doable I think!

I joined just now. Look forward to comparing the miles, and would be HAPPY to draw a new title-page logo for your perusal.

Another Floridian!!! I think we are going to have our work cut out for us as soon as the weather turns nice everywhere else.

Post a logo, maybe we can be given a chance to vote on it.
