    nocondorfx,

    Call Mick Gould at 419-422-0417. I tried throughout the day today, but didn't get an answer until about 5:30 pm this evening. I got in.

    So who made it. I only did the metric this year. A combination of not sleeping good the night before, the mistake of checking the weather channel in the morning showing afternooon showers, and a flat at mile 37. But I got my VERY bright T-shirt!

    I did the metric also. For me, the weather was great. I can live with rain, but not the hot or cold. Only one small mechanical problem (loose fastener on my computer sensor). Thankfully, no visit from the p*nct*re fairy.

    I agree about the VERY bright T-shirt!

    We did the full hundred, but the darned wind pretty much did in my riding partner at about mile 60...even with me doing all the pulling, so I had to slow the pace - cept for about 15 miles of tailwind after the 73 mile rest stop. Ended up in at about 6:40...a full 45 minutes slower than last year...but it ain't no race either.

    I was there, 4 of us did our first centuries that day. Long and slow day, the wind was a bear.

    I am a member of the Hancock Handlebars (sponsoring club) Any constructive criticism? (besides the bananas

    And I liked the high vis T shirts

    Only one. At lunch it would be nice to have a choice of beverage other than water. Ok maybe two, color of the t-shirts. Great if you wear them to ride in but I wear my t-shirts off the bike. Other than that a pretty nice tour.

    I'll mention the lunch water thing, but Gatoraide was available out in the hall as you entered/left the lunch room.

    I occassionally wear a hi viz Tshirt to work, it sure is a conversation starter. I was in our lunch room with a large crowd and they were making fun of me, one woman called me a lightning bug because I was so bright. Wouldn't you know it, at that very moment a lightning bug landed on my shoulder. I thought for a while I was going to have a new nick name, but it wore off. I don't mind the teasing and it gives me a chance to educate why cyclists need to be brightly colored.
