MS 150 "Pedal to the Point"

Anyone else here riding in the MS150 "Pedal to the Point" (Elyria, Ohio to Sandusky & back) this weekend? If so, give me a shout. I'll be riding with the FedEx team.

I heard about it at my LBS, but I don't think I'll do it, I haven't even done a century yet. Maybe next year?

I am riding again with my son. I'll be easy to find riding a teal vision recumbent. My son is riding a Schwinn Letour luxe gray with blue bar tape.

Sure did. If you were diding with FedEx and didn't get yours ahead of time, Dave May had the jerseys and other "team goodies" before the start on Saturday. You might wan to check with him if you never got yours.

It was a good ride, despite some nasty weather and road conditions.

Hey, you should go for it! If you don't think you can do 150 over 2 days, do the one day 75 or one-day 30! It's a well-supported ride, with plenty of mechanical, nutritional and medical support.

I rode it fixed this year, very do-able. In fact it was great fun.

What team do you ride with?

Do you know if you were the only one riding fixed? If so I was chatting with you at the second rest stop on day 2.

I heard about another guy on a fixed gear who was riding brakeless, more of a messenger/hipster type than me (hearsay). Me...I run brakes thank you. My bike is a gray Raleigh Rush Hour

By the way, Pedal to the Point pictures are up on www.kimmorris.com.

There were three FG riders.
One on a new shop bike with two brakes, One on a mid 80's Raleigh conversion no brakes, and one on a 70's conversion (Concord I think) one brake.
The guy riding brakeless was very cool, ex bike mechanic from the west side, pushing a pretty big gear. He rode with us for about 20 miles each way.

I'm bummed that I didn't bump into either of the other guys, I did ride a bit with a young man on a sweet singlespeed mountain bike, he had a pillow strapped to his saddle the second day.
