    Tricia (MyLilPony) and I are riding. Anyone else?

    And, just in case you want to donate to my MS effort, try

    I'm in. Latest donation put me into free jersey territory! I'm a little worried about my fitness. But I'm going to go out and have a good time.

    Yep! I've managed $1,500 and am on Team TNT 4 MS. Look for the jerseys!

    The Stinson Beach rest stop is being manned by Amici Veloci team members who rode as a team last year. jobob is captaining the rest stop.

    I don't know if you'd call it a cycling team. It's just a group of riders who occasionally participate in events like Waves to Wine.

    Some of the riders are racers on other teams or aspiring racers.

    I'm not neither! Snapdragen is our fearless leader.

    And we'll be manning the first rest stop, at Mikes Bikes in Sausalito (not the one at Stinson Beach). We have to set up at O'Dark Stupid - 5:30 am, ack!

    I'll keep my eye out for you, Curtis! Which routes are you riding? I'm planning on 100 miles Saturday and 75 miles on Sunday.

    75 and 75. I'm thinking of wearing the dark NorCal jersey on Sunday, but I haven't made up my mind. My wife is laughing at me for even thinking about what to wear....

    That's what I told MP but she insisted not. I will tell her that once again she is wrong.

    So the MS Society's email jinx landed on me this year . . . .

    With TiVo don't you get to back it up and try again?

    SK,

    Actually, with TiVo, we can use the FastForward option! (How else do you think I made it thru Jo's 200k route in the blazing heat?)

    Ricebowl,

    I'm packing an extra day's worth of clothes. I'll be in my Amici Veloci kit on Day 2.

    Here's a handy tip I learned prior to the AIDS/Lifecycle ride: pack each day's clothes in a 2 gallon zip lock bag. Bring dryer sheets (like Bounce). Put the dirty cycling clothes in a zip lock bag with a dryer sheet, and it helps absorb the moisture from sweat. Plus, when you open the zip lock bag, the smell won't be overpowering. This tip is probably more important for a 7 day ride, but I still plan to use it for the 2 day Waves to Wine ride.

    - Melissa

    So TiVo was your secret at Crater Lake.

    I'm bringing an AV jersey for Lisa so we'll be in Amici Veloci kit on Sunday also. I'll tell MP what the day's fashion rule is.

    Are you camping? The Pois are wussing out at a hotel. Some of us are tough.

    I only used TiVo sparingly at Crater Lake -- I didn't want to miss out on the gorgeous scenery! However, TiVo did come in mighty handy on the drive up & down Hwy 5.

    I'm camping. In fact, my tent is currently set up in my living room, airing out. How many campers in your group?

    I'll look for your TNT jersey on Saturday and your AV jersey on Sunday.

    - Melissa

    PS SadieKate, which lucky bike are you bringing down to Waves to Wine?

    Total campers out of our team, I have no idea. I only know a few people on the team being as how I'm a foreigner. At least two of the bagillion are camping. Want to come join us? You can have one of my beer tickets.

    The Kelly Bonestock is the lucky winner. I've been having hand issues with the bar on the Spectrum and couldn't get it replaced in time so I'm playing it safe.

    Wow that's a stinky bummer. The Sausalito stop is WAY too early to actually want to stop. I thought from the TE thread that you guys were in Stinson???!!!

    SK,

    It'd be great to join you in the campsite!

    Sorry to hear about your hand problems, though.
