    The frame should be finished at FIG tomorrow (damn my special requests) and I need a little help. Does anyone have a repair stand I can borrow for a few days?

    (He is a hard-core, old-bike, Campy fanatic, though; GB, if you do stop by, you and he can totally geek out. He's bringing -- and riding -- all three of his vintage bikes, which he restored/built up himself: a Team Bottecchia, a Claude Butler, and a 3-speed Raleigh nicknamed "Christine," festooned with mirrors and bullet-shaped lights that would look at home on a '57 Chevy, and weighing in at, like, 500 pounds. )

    We both want to be able to enjoy some of the festivities associated with the ride, so I'll be playing it by ear. I don't have a specific mileage goal.
    When is that ride, anyway? And what's it called?
    It's not how many miles you ride, but how hard you ride them. Time trials aren't races.

    I believe it's on the 26th-27th of this month. It's called 24 Hours of Booty. You ride around the Columbia Gateway loop------for 24 hrs.

    Yep, that's correct. The event is capped at 500 riders, but I don't think they've hit that yet. It's $45 to register, and then you need to raise a minimum of $150 by the fundraising deadline. I forget when that it is, though.

    Some friends and I are planning to ride the Tour De Port in Baltimore on the 4th of October. One of the women that I ride with noted on the website that they say that hybrids or mountain bikes are ideal for this ride.

    See Baltimore from an intimate angle and enjoy Charm City's historic neighborhoods and landmarks. Mountain or hybrid bicycles (including tandems and recumbents) are ideal for this event because their wider tires are better suited for the city roads, streetcar tracks, and cobblestone streets that are part of what makes Tour du Port unique. Thousands of riders have successfully participated using road bikes.

    What is your take on this and will we be ok riding our road bikes?

    Yes. you'll be okay on road bikes but just know that there are sections that have crappy road surfaces, loose bricks, etc. When I ride through Fells Point I just think of the Paris Roubaix riders


    Hey Charlie-Yah, not selling my panniers, not really worth it. You are however more than welcome to borrow the whole set. I have two front, two rear, and a huge handlebar bag. I might want to sell that.
    They're all Arkel. Someday I will have time to do a tour of more than a week, just not with my current lifestyle. I use the small ones for trips to the gym and around town. They're great as they have backpack straps that hide away.

    Okay... Frame is done. Here she is. I know some folks will think it's cheesy, but I am dedicating the bike build to my family members and friends who are currently fighting cancer: Mom (survivor), Step-mom, Mother-in-law, Grandma, Aunt and best friend.

    I love it.

    Not cheesy and your sentiment is in the right place!

    Don, we promise you that he's not a serial killer, just maybe a cereal killer.

    Not cheesy at all. Very handsome. Love the bright yellow lugwork. I'm inspired!

I try to bring a bike and check the old stomping grounds whenever I come up to visit. Moved to Florida chasing a skirt a long time ago (we've been hitched 21 years now ). LeMond once said he loved training in north Florida because no matter what direction you rode, you got a headwind. It's 100% true.

    And yes, my road bike DOES finally index, even if it IS only 7speed!

    Hi all,
    I just registered with this forum today. Got the link from greaterbrown, whom I met when he made the trip up to Glen Rock for my Back Roads Beater Tour last July 4th. From the content of the postings I've seen, this site seems to have a randonneur flavor to it. Both the wife and I have some interest in this wrinkle of cycling. Particularly so over the winter when Spandex and brow bands are things of distant memory.
    We waited out most of the rain at last week's CWC and rode the 77 mile version. I took my Fred commuter bike, fenders and all which worked out great. Bob's Kogswell was an inspiration for building this bike up out of attic parts.
    All replies/comments welcome.

    Welcome Andy. Great ride you planned that day. My Ride Report
    I'd do that one again- of course, maybe with a different diet.
    For some reason 9 light beers and 2 hot dog buns on a 110 mile ride caused me to bonk.
    Go figure.

    I've got a rare saturday off tomorrow to ride this:

    Bon voyage. Sorry for wussing out on you. She said she was going to call to confirm whether she was coming, but hasn't yet. ...and, then there's the myriad of other excuses I posed.

    "Wussing out". You're killing me

    The only possible consolation will be that if you ride anything LESS THAN 100 miles tomorrow AND if I can successfully finish tomorrow's 200k...

    THEN, I will have finally caught up to half of your mileage this year.
    There. I've already jinxed myself.

    I did ride less than 100... not much of a choice since I started late. I did the Bud L casual ride - Tour de Chase:

    So, how did the brevet go?

    Caught ya! Well, sort of anyway

    Ride went great. Felt strong throughout. Finished in 9 hrs 10 minutes. (don't know what my on bike time was) Did lots of riding with Harry's friend Bennett. Good guy. Ride report with pics to follow.

    I love that you rode the tour de chase, Isaias. I've been wanting to ride more of the casual rides, just to see what's going on there. Way to go. -GB
