I believe the Psimet Invitational will be a clothing required event.

You'll need to check with the local authorities on that one, but I'm pretty sure one doesn't want to be riding au natural with the combines harvesting crops so close to the route....

Sounds like fun. (Can I win the Queen of the Mountains this year? ) But isn't that the same weekend as the Blue Ridge Pkwy ride? I feel like I'm being forced to pick sides!

Dang, I would love to come to Chicago. Did I mention I am Irish? I don't think I can work it out.

Sorry, the Celtic Classic is that weekend. It's hard to compete with beer, bagpipes, and bridies. And redheaded lasses... (not in that order)

Ride the morning loop, back to the city by noon to shower before the shower.

Bingo!

Can't help with the airfare, but consider room and board provided.


*shaking head*...like you had to ask.

If someone bellies up for the airfare I propose flying him in to O'Hare about mid afternoon the evening before so that jet lag hits about rollout time.

Still I love the title of this thread. It's all about the CyLowe.

I am sad. I did not see the word "with" in the title of this thread until just now. Day is ruined.

Well, I have checked with the 20 professionally trained agents I had standing by 24/7 to field the anticipated volume of calls. It appears that they went from standing by to just sitting by to falling asleep at their terminals due to the underwhelming response to the offer above.

I've had to fire all of them and now there will be no Christmas cheer for the orphans for whom they were raising money.

I hope you're all happy with yourselves.
