    Unfortunately, I'm out. I'm doing a couple of rides in Virginia that weekend instead. Old men on old bikes.

    I'm mulling this one over in my mind. If I make it, it will be for 100.

    I'll wave to all you 100 milers as you blow by me. You'll actually probably be on the road before I will. I'll be Fredding it with the hubby

    This will be my first organized ride so I have no idea what to expect.

    You know, it's okay to just admit you are a cat 4 pack fodder team manager and that your weekend dance cards are filled from here to 2015 or so.

    Say "buon giorno!" to all the other cat 4's during your race if you can catch your breath.

    Man, what happened to this ride? This used to be one that everyone came out to rock it through the rolling farmland.

    I'm still mulling the 100, but might just end up rolling solo and saving the entry fee.

    i'll be there, riding with a couple friends who have never ridden out in farm country. not entirely sure if our pace will be up to the BFNIC standards, which is why I haven't chimed in.

    I had an asthma/allergy/lung, problem. Between that and recovering from the side effects of the medicine I was out for a while. I feel great now, however I didn't ride too much this spring. I was able to get a couple hundred miles in these last few weeks, but no rides over 50 miles. Weather permitting I plan to ride the century.

    Ugh; i'm asthmatic myself and know exactly what you're talking about.

    Asthma attack; decrease in cycling performance

    Take medicine; feel side effects

    Wait 15-30 minutes for side effects to go away

    Wait more for medicine to properly kick in

    Feel great WAY later when your body has adjusted.

    I've been planning on doing this ride but with the forecast calling for thunderstorms I'm hesitating. Not so much b/c of the rain—I have rain gear and have ridden in rain plenty of times—but because of lightning. Anyone else concerned about this? Anyone who lives or rides on these rural IL routes got any sage advice on whether tempting the thunder gods is a bad idea?
