So I'm doing 125 miles tomorrow ...

And I just found out the group going --- all men - and all cops, including a retired SWAT police chief (he's doing another 125 on Saturday), the cop who heads up the a district downtown, another who patrols via Trek mtb in the downtown area and a retired detective.

and moi!


Oh ... how I lead a double life!

So you need me to hold your stash for a day? No problem. May be some missing when you come back.

Don't embarrass them by riding too fast Cops who cycle are generally pretty fit, but they also have tend to have heavy builds which slows them down considerably.

retired SWAT commander and retired chief of detectives both work in criminal justice here in school - and there's a group here at school who tour each year - I toured with them one year 5 days, about 450 miles, and we got together a couple weeks before tour and did a century. So it's become a yearly event. Just so happens this year their cop buddies are attending. I guess I should feel pretty darn safe!

My friends are all snickering about my double life.

Did you actually create that?

No I found it - I'm a Google Queen Think I found it using "Flies Funny". And the flys became a theme

I have it as wallpaper too.

125 miles isn't that much of a ride, really, as long as you have time, nutrition and the weather is reasonably cooperative. Have fun!

Yeah this one won't be bad, flat for 65 miles (little boring actually as we traveling a trail along the Erie Canal) then hit a few good climbs, then hit some crazy parts of Buffalo that dump us out onto what I can only describe as a 6 lane freeway - where our fearless leader will then tell us that our "exit" is on the left! - and it will be Friday Afternoon rush hour traffic as we gaze over ALL the busy lanes to our exit, then it settles down with the rest of the way - traveling some nicely laid out trails along Lake Erie then onto some low rollers to flat the rest of the way. Not like the last one I did, I swear who ever designed that charity ride was out for blood as it it was nothing but climbs.
