    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 ...




    * We should redo this ride in September and see just how much faster we do it 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! 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?

    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.
    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.
    Definitely after I get my new bike. Hopefully, before.

    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.

    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.

    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??

    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

    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...

    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.
