snowy 02-08-07 10:32 AM

:p It's just a little frost, honest. :) I rode to work in it, it was fine.

As far as the route, there's no reason in the world that it shouldn't be ridable, assuming we don't get a lot of NEW snow. I ride in the area all the time, the worst I have to look out for is sand and gravel left over on the shoulders and bike lanes.

snowy 02-08-07 10:45 AM

Yeah I figure we will just have to be careful with the sand/salt stuff. :)

superdex 02-08-07 10:46 AM

I'll drive it tomorrow (heck I may end up riding it tomorrow). And b is right, it'll be a dirty ride, but hopefully mostly snow-free.

Better yet - has everyone checked their bikes? I know mine has been in a closet for two months and who nows what shape the tires and tubes are in... might be the excuse I need to hit the LBS for a new pair of Gatorskins...

See you all on Sunday.
Thanks Snowy for the organization! Nice job.

......

Mine has had MAYBE 4 days off, TOTAL since I bought it in June of last year. I'm pretty sure it's up for it. :p Although I could use a new pair of tires... doubtful I'll get them this weekend, though... They moved my Performance... now instead of about 2 miles they're like 15 away. :( :mad:

Edit: Ok... it's only 10 miles... that's still a lot farther. *sighs* Guess I'll check some other places for prices. I need a new back wheel soon, too.

Raedeke 02-08-07 10:22 PM

Which one moved?

Pwnt 02-08-07 10:54 PM

I wish I could get the route slip to work. Kinda wanna know where I'm going. All my bike will not be 100% as I am still running a short cage derailleur with a triple crank. I have my small ring locked out but still.....not all my gears I have one coming but it wont be here till monday or tuesday.

Raedeke 02-08-07 11:02 PM

On this ride you won't need the granny... When you say the slip... are you saying the link won't work? I hit it last night and it worked fine. Do you see anything?

Performance. It used to be less than 3 miles and I'd ride there whenever I needed something... now it's 10, though I could probably make a nice ride of it, if I really wanted to.

A route slip is a sheet with turn by turn directions... if the route doesn't have turns entered on it, we can't print a route slip, the best you can do is try to print the map in a usable form.

EDIT: I copied the route and added the turns, check it here: http://www.routeslip.com/map.php?map=20951&

snowy 02-09-07 08:53 AM

Just for this special occasion of getting on my road bike I'm buying some new knickers :)

See everyone Sunday!!!

Pwnt 02-09-07 11:39 AM

It just says "Loading... Please wait." I don't know what gives.

Ummm.....I think our group is going to be a bit larger. :D I mentioned the ride to a few (5 lol) of my Karate friends and they seemed pretty excited about it. Hope its still ok with you. The more the merrier right?

What browser are you using and how tight do you have the security settings and/or extensions? If you're using Firefox with NoScript or something similar you'll have to allow the page. And I'm sure there are IE settings that you can tighten up to the point that it won't work anymore.

I didn't add turn-by-turn because the route is simple: We head up to 32nd from Sloan's Lake, take 32nd out to Golden, turn left to go up to the judicial center, and turn around....

superdex 02-09-07 02:26 PM

ok, the weather report is still looking good. PM me for my phone number in case there are last minute changes, but as of right now, we're a GO GO GO!

(okay, so I still have to drive the route, but I trust it with this week's warmth)

Pwnt 02-10-07 12:36 AM

LOL:roflmao:

<---Bringing Sexy back! Sport'n spandex pants baby! OH YEAH!;)

Tried pulling it up at work and it stalled at "Please wait - Loading"
Reset the security levels on IE to the default - (Medium) and it loaded fine.
You might check those settings if you are still having trouble.

Bad news:

I was on my way to the store with my wife and we went past Supercuts.... she said I should go in and get a haircut, that "It'll make you faster on the ride tomorrow" .... so I did. And now my hair is nice 'n short, and I'm ready to go.

Watch out! :p

Another funny thing... I stopped in the bike shop and was talking to one of the employees... we started talking about the weather, and I said I hoped it would hold out for tomorrow, I had a bike ride... he said he had one, too, and that they were meeting at 12:30 ..... me: "Oh, Where are ya meeting?" him: "21st and Stuart" me: "Hi, I'm Bill, we're riding together tomorrow!" :) :) :)

Sorry - I wasn't clear. Which Performance shop moved?

bmclaughlin807 02-11-07 09:04 AM

The Lakewood Performance, which used to be at Kipling and Jewell is now the Littleton Performance, Located on S. Wadsworth.

Raedeke 02-11-07 09:28 AM

Ahh - didn't make it out to that one much.
I'm only a few blocks from Campus Cycles and Denver Spoke, so they are my first stop most of the time.

Looks like yet another beautiful day in Colorado - time to go get the bike preped and the bike rack on the car...

See you all a bit later.
