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

I gots tools. If the bike doesn't hurt on the trainer, it will be fine on the road. You don't have to wear spandex.


And I understand the jitters, and it's all good. I'm looking forward to just being outside on the bike. Heck, a 28mi ride this early in the season?* I'm expecting it to be a 3 hour tour (including stops, etc). You gots nothing to worry about ... :D




* We should redo this ride in September and see just how much faster we do it :D I'm gonna bet 1:30 ....

I have tools and a pump... if you've got a tube that'll fit your bike, you should be good. And Superdex said he's bringin' his tools, too.

And yeah, I kinda figured 3 hrs, including stops and whatever. :) Snowy made me promise not to leave y'all behind! :p Actually, come the weekend I'm usually pretty tired out from all the OTHER rides I do during the week! I'm looking forward to a pretty easy and fun trip!

And yes... if you ever ride with Data Junkie, bring extra tubes... you're guaranteed to get at least 4 flats, your patch kit won't hold and your pump will stop working. (Ok, the pump never gave out, but I sure got tired of pumping!)

edit: By the way, Data Junkie, When we going riding again? :)

snowy 02-07-07 08:06 AM

Don't worry this ride will be fun regardless. I have a frame pump on my bike and I'll be extra tubes too.

I think everyone will be happy just to ride and hang with other riders :)

I'll be in Leadville till early Sunday morning, boyfriend has a winter mountain bike race there Saturday night. S.Dex has my cell phone number if anything comes up. S.Dex you still have it right??

I think riding with you right now would kill me. :p
It was hard enough when I was at my peak condition last year. Now 10 lbs heavier with 6 commutes during the snows has me exhausted. Today and yesterday were the first regular length commutes since the beginning of December. By regular I mean the distance not the route. I have completely removed all trails from my commute. Mainly taking york to brighton blvd to bike route d11.
Anyhow, I am babbling. :p
Definitely after I get my new bike. Hopefully, before. :)

Pwnt 02-07-07 08:42 AM

I hope my butt can handle 3 hours. :lol:

hairlessbill 02-07-07 10:28 AM

If it doesn't snow too much and my wife gives me a hall pass, count me in. It'll be good to go for a non-commute ride.

snowy 02-07-07 10:45 AM

Would love to have you join us!!! :)

superdex 02-07-07 02:13 PM

I'll be in knickers or full tights, depending. Yes it's too cold to ride in shorts -- it's February :rolleyes:

snowy 02-07-07 03:08 PM

You should have done that YESTERDAY when it was 68! duh. :p

snowy 02-07-07 04:51 PM

Hey guys, invited a friend that works at a bike shop. His name is Kyle. :)

He is doing the Triple By-Pass too. He told my boyfriend that he was riding on Sunday and bf told him I was riding with some peeps. I told him to give him a call. :)

efrobert 02-07-07 07:03 PM

Hey, I'm in Denver untill next week. I have one of my bikes out here, I might be up for a ride. Where is Sloan's lake?

snowy 02-07-07 08:39 PM

Hey Efrobert. Sloans Lake is right behind St. Anthony's Hospital. I know that doesn't help but its just North of 6th Ave on Sheridan.
You can mapquest it.

Where are you at??

efrobert 02-07-07 08:49 PM

I'm around the Tech Center. Exit 199 off I25. A couple miles from the Cherry Creek res.

snowy 02-07-07 09:10 PM

Efrobert,

Go I-25 North to 6th Ave. West on 6th Ave to Sheridan. North on Sheridan to Sloan's Lake. Its past Colfax.

You can't miss it. Its a hugh lake on your right hand side.

We are meeting at 21st and Stuart St. Parking Lot.

Pm me and I'll give you my cell if your interested.

If you've not filled the peloton yet, I wouldn't mind getting in on this ride.
Can't believe it's been two months since I've gotten out and a nice ride up to Golden would be just the thing to get the joints moving again.

I'm trying to catch up on the thread -
February 11th at 12:30 from the parking lot at the corner of Stuart and w. 21st - out to Golden somewhere and return...

If this is still on - I'll see you all there - may even drag a buddy along for grins...

Cheers

bmclaughlin807 02-07-07 10:46 PM

The more the merrier, right? See ya there, Raedeke.

Raedeke 02-07-07 11:17 PM

Looking forward to it!
They just plowed my street yesterday - first sign of pavement since December 19th.
Can't wait to get back out there...

snowy 02-08-07 08:01 AM

Would love to have you join us. :) See ya on Sunday!!!

Pwnt 02-08-07 08:26 AM

Just a thought, I'm sure it will be fine but has anyone checked the route out to make sure it is ride-able? If someone wants to tell me how to get the route slip to work I can go check it out after work today and post my findings. Again, just a thought. :D
