This looks like a lot of fun. I haven't been to Maine in years. What area does the southern 50-mi ride cover? Any idea?

I hope they have the route sheets up soon, Hok. The rides up here are heaven, if the weather is dry. You guys have some great rides (and people) in South Jersey, too. Love Princeton area.

They've got the routes up. Now I'm definitely interested. Long weekend in Maine, anyone?

I'll be there, Hok. Maybe we can hook-up and chit-chat before the ride. I'm doing the 100M version, my first "century". You think you might make it?

I need to firm up my business travel schedule for July, but right now that weekend looks good. My father-in-law lives in Waldoboro, so I'll plan to spend the weekend at his place. I'd do the 60-mi ride. Don't think I'm ready for a century with that much climbing. But I've dreamed about riding along the Maine coast for years.

Looks like that weekend is not going to work. However, I signed up for the Lighthouse Ride in September.

That sounds like a great ride, Hok! Lighthouses are one of my favorite things.

Hi guys, My fist century ever at 58 years old, last year was the Lighthouse Ride. Can't say enough nice things about it. Great views, well supported, friendly people. Going back in September.

I'll be doing the Lobster ride this year also all 103 miles of it. Weather is looking good 70 degrees at the start, not much wind, 80 degrees for the high should be on southern portion before it heats up. So looking forward to it. Hills will be a little bit of a challenge as its all flat around here. 1989Pre I'll be riding the no name, red bike probably have my flag shirt on if you feel like saying hi.

Kevin

Hi there, Outn! That's great that you are doing the Lobster Ride. I am thinking of riding with empty bottles till the second rest stop at 35 miles, because the first 34 are where the largest hills are. At 70 degrees (and sun below the tree tops), if I hydrate well before the ride, I won't even think of taking a sip till around 32 miles. Just an idea.
I'm also doing the 103-mile ride and it is my first century at age 58.
weatherforyou.com says a high of 75, so I hope they're right. I'll be on a lemon yellow Raleigh Technium (custom color, so the only one in existence, probably). I hope to average what I usually do on long rides, 15.7-15.9 mph. Toodles.

Bummer - wish I had seen this earlier. It would have been a good warmup for PMC. Have a great ride!
