    St. Patty's Day Ride - 03.22.09



    http://www.wheelmen.com/pats.htm

    I usually use this as my first outdoor ride of the year no matter what the temperature. Anyone else in?

    As long as you're three seconds faster than CC, that's all that really matters.

    I was just talking to kimbercop about this one about a week ago. Last year it was sooooooo cold and I rode miserably for sure. I think I may be in.

    There is technically a Kenosha practice crit, but this is a lot closer and it woul dbe fun to just do a ride again.

    This actually might be a interesting chance for me to have first ride outside before I finish my ski season...

    Out. Still working weekends until after April 4th
    and the road becomes my bride
    I have stripped of all but pride
    So in her I do confide
    And she keeps me satisfied
    Gives me all I need

    Sounds tempting,mainly because it's in the foreseeable future, it's outside, and it's not a full century on the first formal outside ride of the year.
    Suzy Creamcheese, what's got into you?

    Two more weeks folks! And the weather is getting better. If it stays this way, I might actually do it.
