I am in a delema.
Feburary 5th is the Tour de palm Springs and it is 50 dollars to ride the century. This will be my first century blah blah blah. Here is the problem...
I AM BROKE! Well not quite but I am a starving student and I just paid tuition. I have very little discressionary income and 50 dollars is a little, way over, what I can afford for a ride. Some club members have said they are going to ride without paying the entry fee. I guess if you take your own supplies (like 2 water bottles and a camelback and lots of food) could get you away from the sag stops for eating (you could stop but not eat).
Has anyone done something like this? Is this really a viable option. Fifty dollars is quite a bit of money for someone in my situation right now.
Thanks as always
