I'm planning on all three of the populaires (116-122 km each), the entire Super Randonneur series (200, 300, 400 & 600 km rides) plus an additional 200 or 300 km brevet. Oh... and did I mention that all but one of those rides is BEFORE the Triple Bypass... I have no idea what I'll do after July... Start training for next year, I guess.

The rides I have scheduled will qualify me for:
200km brevet medal
300km medal
400km medal
600km medal
Super Randonneur medal
These rides would also qualify me for the 1200k brevets, like the Paris-Brest-Paris, though I won't be able to do it.
These medals are all internationally santioned, I'd also qualify for the 1000k total distance medal through RUSA, and the additional populaires will get me the 2000k.

NEXT year I hope to complete a 1200k brevet... my goal is to do it in a time that would qualify me for RAAM. (Race Across AMerica)

So... who's up for some riding? Info about brevets
Wackjob! I mean that in the most sincere way possible.
I rode 6-7 days a week almost 300 miles each week last summer. It took months for me to recover and was quite literally burned out. For me recovery days are a must.

I'll cut down on my commute if I need the recovery time. To work though is an easy ride, and I can cut out most of the climbing and 2/3rds of the distance on the way back by catching the bus part way.

I wasn't that smart. I ran myself into the ground completely unaware of what I was doing. d'oh!

I am playing it more patiently this year. Once I can handle the 3 days of 56 miles I will add more. Weekend recreational rides without the kid would be a good thing every once in a while.

I'll post when I know for sure. We also have some more formal training rides scheduled which are listed on http://www.clubhypoxia.com

Would be great to get BF&BJ folks together for rides together!
Umm... I figured out what Hypoxia is doing on the 18th... it's right here:

Club Hypoxia Ride Schedule

If that ride is a go, I'll be there! Lemme know.

All you'll be fine. He did that 4 day ride in Moab and is hurting pretty bad. So he is going to go slow he said.

Plus we will be riding on bike path can't really be racing

I e-mailed the guy I'm getting the bars from and told him to expect 'a whole herd of cyclists to roll up in front of his house about 2' ... he got a kick out of that.

See y'all Sunday!

I don't think I am going to make it to this one guys, I am feeling really bad. I don't know if I'm coming down with something or if burning the candle is catching up with me. Either way, yeah, I don't feel good.

Anyway, enjoy the ride and I'll try to get ya on the next one.

Sorry.

Once you go south on Union, take the FIRST left into the park 'n ride... as long as you don't turn back onto 6th Ave, you're golden.

Total on my odometer: 66.18 , estimated climbing: 3,300 feet.

The ride was a success! Aero bars are mounted, I did a couple miles on them and loved them. Thanks Snowy and DataJunkie!

Pwnt, it wasn't hard it was just the amount of miles for me. I haven't done anything more then 20 or so miles this year. So putting down 50+ was alittle much for me
