    Black Bear Century Grayling, Michigan

    Is anyone planning on the July 27 ride this year?
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Not for sure, but I *may* do it. With the weather being what it is, training is not going well this year. Plus, I'll have to get my lowracer running in time.

    A few years back, my partner and I went sub-4 in the McKinley route. The officials kindly added 7 or 8 minutes and gave us a tie with the next team.

    I'm with you on the "may". Even though the route has the rep for being fast I still get amazed at the times. I'll see how the base miles go with this C-Dale Crit I built. Maybe, just maybe.

    It's not looking good for me to get my racing bike on the road in time for BB. Big rides the next three weekends; so it'll be late June before I even have a chance to work on it. Black Bear may have to wait until next year.

    That's a busy June! I hope your rides go well. This weekend I'm looking at a metric and diligently climbing the ladder. The 50mi last weekend was hot and hilly, darn near trashed the century idea it was that unpleasant. Still tentative but hopeful. The criterium series is a fast bike, keeps me into this thing.
