I'm anxious to hear how the ride goes.

And Dunbar - great idea! You lead the ride!

Is the GMR ride on for this Saturday?

What is the distance to the shack?

Are the roads clear of ice up to the lifts?

What is the start time?

I have to be back to the car no later then 10:30 to get back home by 11:30. I have a DATE with my girlfriend, my wife

Phil

Half the trick is getting HIM to show up!

I seem to have March 22 open if anybody wants to assault the mountain then. Maybe even assault the lifts once and for all?

Yah, it I thought it was strange that we get such a good turnout on the rides I instigate. Then I got to thinking about it. In reality, it's only because everyone says, "Hey, at least I won't be last if PJ is there!!!"

That's true. And I appreciate the grace you showed. If I remember correctly, you rode with me while carrying a full-size DSLR, stopped to take many "pictures", "fixed your gears", trued your wheels, practiced your wheelies, took a nap, etc.

You really need to learn to maintain your own bikes... do you ever get through a ride without a major catastrophe or mechanical?

And hey everybody... psstt... I think photojoe is on to us.

@PhotoJoe....not so fast (pun intended). I now am among the employed again and have ridden a whopping ZERO hours this month. 13 hours/180 miles in Feb (most of which came on the PS Century)....so I don't feel so confident in my fitness.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry...maybe a little of both, but congrats on paying taxes again.

Um I'm gonna have to plead the 5th on that quote

Last summer when I ramped up the road mileage, I HAD to maintain the bike to survive saturday's club ride abuse. I didn't want to be "that" breaking down or noisy bike. BUT since I'm not doing long rides every saturday this yr, I've been slacking on cleaning / maintaining the bike again. But I DID got new tires last week for one of the 3 wheelset. The Stans needs a front and tubs needs a rears from skidding at 32mph

Yes, working a regular, paying job has that effect on one's training schedule.

On the other hand, a steady income is good for buying bike parts.

If you're like me you have more parts coming in than miles going out.

I always have trouble getting into a routine when something changes but I'm really looking forward to the time change on Sunday!
