Any Texas or SW are C/A's wanna join?

My first "serious" ride is the going to be the Livestrong Challenge in Austin late in October. I figure that gives me a bit of time to train and lose some weight before I have to deal with some real hills.

I have started a team and am looking for team members to join. The team name is Sizeable Cyclists, and I would love to have it completely comprised of Clydes and Athenas, or people who used to be C/As.

We will be designing and having made custom jerseys (from a company that makes jerseys for large people).

So, come join in the fun!

i don't think that i could join the ride, but would be interested in the jerseys if you needed a minimum order size.

Certainly, Cranes. I will send you details once we finalize the design, and get everything ironed out.
If you want to email me details (size, etc), I will add you to the list.
The Challenge does have a 10 mile loop, if the distance is daunting.

I'm interested, but have to see the Doctor tomorrow & find out how badly I've messed the knee up.

October sounds doable though.

Interesting. I could cut off a leg this summer and still be a Clyde in October. I'll have to check the schedule.
