Well, tomorrow I'm off to Columbia, Mo. for the MS150. Hurricane Gustav remnants swept thru today, we're supposed to have partly cloudy skys, low 80's both days. First day has a 4 mph headwind predicted for the entire ride (and it's an out and back loop!). Will be the first real test of the new Surly LHT- been getting it dialed in, and me dialed in to it over the last three weeks- put about 500 miles on it, and it feels really good.
Plan to do the 75 mile routes both days, and if feeling froggy at the end of each/either day, ride another 12.5 out and back to make it an even 100 (but based on past experience on these routes, I'll be done at 75).
Wish me luck, and if any of you are riding- watch for the black and white jerseys with the bull.
