I told my wife we were going to be riding from Sloan's Lake to Golden and back... she says "That's IT???" :roflmao:

I'll get about 10 miles on top of that, riding to the lake and back home. :p Maybe I'll have to make a grocery run in the morning... get myself good and warmed up before hand. hehe

I'm looking forward to the ride, it'll be lots of fun!

Tell her us whimps haven't been riding our bikes!!! :)

It will be the first time on my road bike in well........ two months or so???

I'm ready though!

superdex 02-05-07 09:20 PM

yeah yeah yeah, some of us are 'restarting' our season :p . I know I haven't ridden outside since the week before Christmas. Riding to Sloan's from my house would make it a 50 miler, but the girlfriend isn't up for that yet.....

snowy 02-05-07 09:40 PM

It will be fun just riding :) and riding with everyone!! Even if we are slow. :)

bmclaughlin807 02-05-07 10:10 PM

Yeah, well... I've been 'training' 5x a week with this route: http://www.routeslip.com/map.php?map=20944&

With a 9 hr break in the middle, of course. :)

Pwnt 02-06-07 07:15 AM

I've been riding in my basement and have yet to even make it to the stairs(about 4' away). But I keep pedaling away. :rolleyes: :D :D

snowy 02-06-07 09:20 AM

So how many are coming out??

S.dex and his girl, Pwnt, BMClauglin807, me........ anyone else?? :)

Pwnt 02-06-07 10:13 AM

I can bring lots o friends. :D

snowy 02-06-07 10:43 AM

superdex 02-06-07 12:04 PM

snowy 02-06-07 12:31 PM

Yeah it will be interesting to see how I ride. :)

Pwnt 02-06-07 12:47 PM

:sadface:

It doesn't look like I'm going be able to make it. There is no way for me to get out of work. Work until noon.

snowy 02-06-07 12:49 PM

WHAT???
That sucks.:(

Anyone willing to push the start time back any hour?

bmclaughlin807 02-06-07 12:51 PM

I'm up for any time. 10 PM works well... we should be able to make it there and back before the battery on my main lights goes out, and the traffic is nicer. :p

Anyway... I'm good for whenever.

superdex 02-06-07 12:52 PM

yah I'm cool wid it. Keep an eye on the weather, folks....

Pwnt 02-06-07 12:54 PM

I work off 8th and Bannock. I could be there by 12:30.

snowy 02-06-07 01:00 PM

Okay lets do 12:30!! You guys rock!! :)

Pwnt 02-06-07 01:02 PM

AHhhh

30 minutes to get from 8th and Bannock to Sloan's Lake? Shouldn't be a problem if they don't keep ya late. :)

9news says it'll be clear, Weather.com says chance of snow, as does Weather Underground.

Though how you get much snow with a low temp of 35 is beyond me. *boggles* I think it'll be decent.

I would rather be early than late so....12:30.....

I'm nervous because I've never ridden this bike on the road, it has always been on the trainer. I'm not entirely sure it's even road worthy yet. I don't have anything ressembling a road kit if something should go wrong. I'm not sure my fit it right and I'm pretty sure I dont look good in spandex. :D

Or all this could just be the n00b jitters.:eek:

Off topic, I used to live near the junction of Cherry Creek and Highline and work in the Tech Center so I know that commute well.

Before SE Denver I lived off Green Mountain and worked downtown so I know BMclaugh's commute as well.

Now I live in Golden and work in Longmont, I don't know that commute.........

DataJunkie 02-06-07 07:25 PM

I'd come along but everyone would need extra tubes and patch kits. :p
Actually, I have to wax my head.....or is it watch my son?
Count me in for a different ride. :)
