    So what, 25-30 miles or so? (I know better than to ask for a Bikely... )

    subject to change, maybe closer to 40 miles...make it worth it.
    I'll actually do a bikely if this happens for sure. we could do a Tiburon loop...maybe some ideas from everyone.

    Jeez. I'm riding 16 mile commute on the fixed. It is an experience. Even with the brakes stopping feels like an adventure. I really notice every minor hill, up or down.
    So there is no flippin' way I'm going to ride it in the City. The City that I fear riding my geared bike in!

    I'd be in for a Tiburon Loop. Depends on the date of course. When is Labor Day?

    *nevermind Labor Day is too far off. Valentine's maybe?

    TT/prologue is in Sac that day. No ride is going to keep me from my local ToC stop and seeing some guy in an Astana jersey. I root for the 21st.

    Eh, I've missed the ToC every year so far (and I live and work about a mile from West Capitol Ave, where it passes), what's one more?

    Can't these two events peacefully co exist? Like close to each other? Or something?

    Count me in. I used to ride my fixed almost every day and it has been mostly idle since I moved here. I commuted a couple of times on it but have to admit, my new Marin commuter bike (<$400) is much more comfortable: wide tires, gears, a little shock absorber in the seat post.

    But my gearing is kind of high: 45x16. I don't really know the roads you listed but I should probably change that, right? I got 17, 18 and 19T cogs.

    Ouch. If that's "kind of high", I'm boned. 47x16 (77 gear inches) and 38x14 (71) here. The first one was 52x16 (85) at one point...

    My mistake - I just checked and my chain ring is 48 so it is 48x16. I got it originally with 48x15 but that seemed ridiculous at the time. I was in NY city with no brakes (yes I was young and ignorant, now I am just ignorant) so I changed that to 19 for better starting and stopping, then to 18, then to 17, then finally to 16. And now I have a front brake.

    Ah, forgot about the ToC. 21st or 28th might be good.
