    Have left it for a while to let you all think it is not going to happen, but a month or so ago I suggested a Forum new years ride. Along the lines of the Birthday ride, and I wish I could find out who to blame for that one.

    This is what I will be doing on January 1st 2006. At 3pm GMT (or London Time) I will on my bike doing a 1 hour ride. Not certain if the 3pm will be at the start, the middle or the end of the ride, but My 1 hour ride will be around 3pm. This will allow many of you on the forum to participate in a Forum Virtual ride. Knowing that some of you will not be up to a 6am ride at your local time, then this time is completely flexible, and so is the day if you are off visiting relations or having to work, or are just completely under the weather from the previous nights celebrations.

    Object is to have as many of us riding the new year in, and as many as possible doing it at the same time.
    Then there are those of us that will have weather that will not allow you to ride. It doesn't matter if you do it on a trainer, or down the gym, or even just go for a brisk walk. Then there are those of us that will not be able to participate , so their objective is two slices of Pie- preferanby of Irma's standard, to keep up the spirit and to provide Virtual sustinence to the rest of us.

    Then as someone else put it "Porn is no good without the pictures"

    I will be doing one of my few off-road rides on New Year's Day. We will ride at the St. Mark's Wildlife Refuge in Florida. Y'all come.

    I plan to ride a half century on New Year's Day to get a good jump start to my cycling goals for next year. I figure it will be a brisk 54 degrees or so at the start of the ride, and the wind chill factor will make it feel like a frigid 52 degrees, but once I warm up, I'll be okay.

    The brutality of Southern Arizona winters makes it problematic to predict whether or not I could survive a New Year's Day ride. Should there be a break in the weather though, I shall ride

    Weather permitting I'll be riding. However, Irma's will be closed! It's probably a good thing, as I won't have the legs for it in any event.

    Count me in too. If not on the road due to the early Winter starting here, then a session on the rollers.

    Jan 1 is Sunday meaning I work, (Sat is our weekend). However I could manage a 35 mile commute to work. Starting 06:00 IST (04:00 GMT), the ride takes about 2 h thus it would be 04:00-06:00 Zulu - Good luck to all and Happy New Year

    I'll be riding over the Negev hills when many of you will be saluting to the New Year.

    Great idea on getting a jump start on the year. Someone mentioned it might be a good a good day to do "ride the temps" mileage-wise.

    Hey Pastor Bob,

    Did you know Isaiah was a bike rider? Sounds like he was a climber.
    "Then shalt thou delight thyself in the Lord; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth..."

    Dick,

    Thanks for the reference. I should paste that verse on my handle bars when I'm climbing here in the steepish NH mountains. By the way, did you know that Paul was not a bicyclist? He wrote, "For we are not peddlers... like so many...." (2 Cor. 2:17). I wish I could join you in St. Marks. Beautiful place! I was there at sunrise one beautiful day in June back in the early 90's. It's an image I'll keep in my mind my entire life.

    Bob

    I believe Mountain time would be 2 hours behind eastern standard. So 10:00am eastern standard is 8:00am Mountain time

    It was MINUS 29 F here two days ago and the high was MINUS 4 F. Does that mean I would have to pedal backwards?
    p.s. the average high here on January 1 is 30, but the record low is minus 38. So I can't guarantee anything outdoors, but I will commit to getting on the trainer by 9 a.m. Mountain Time.

    Guess I'll be the only one in bed if I don't.......7:00AM here in CA...Santa Fe hwy loop for me with an Irma-inspired Clif bar and latte on the return cool down (poor choice of words).

    If the Valley tule fog is squatting over the county, I'll be at the Tour de Garage with History Channel or Spinervals. Either way, I'll post a picture as I hope most of us will.

    If that means 0700 here in Cali I will be a bit late. But I plan on New years Day Solo Ride 27 miles to the Beach and 27 back. I don't think Santa is planning on bringing me a digital camera but I may just treat myself if so I will post a pic of the blue Pacific and my Medone.

    I did a 50 mile ride last New Year's Day. Weather permitting, it sounds like a great way to start this new year, too.
