Who's in Massachussets?

I have to go up to Springfield next week for training for the new job. I'm actually debating trying to bring the bike. I have no idea what my schedule will be like though.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

All I can say is if you DON'T bring it, you'll have opportunities galore to ride and you'll be kicking yourself the whole time you're there.......

I'm in an errant county of MA called Rhode Island. Still a couple three hours from Springfield, though.

Dang - wish I'd known I'd have staid an extra day. I'm suppose to be back in Austin though for a party on the 18th. What are you doing racing all the way in MA?

Still debating the bike thing. It will be a MAJOR PITA to bring and will totally suck if I haul it up there and then can't ride.

I'd say Springfield is a lot sketchier than Worcester.

Man, the weather up here this week has been incredible. I ended up deciding it wasn't worth it to bring the bike for just 3 days of riding - and I still agree with that - but dang, it would've been nice. Cypress - the weather is supposed to extend through the weekend so it should be awesome race conditions.
