    Sounds interesting, and it's fairly close to me.

    How fast / slow will the ride be?

    What sort of socializing typically takes place before/during/after the rides?

    Hey - a little respect here!! How'd the Redskins do in the post season?

    :D

    Nice!



    Thanks - that's where I'll start. Then, if I find that time trialing is to tough for my weak legs, I'll restore the bike to its normal road racing format and run a few crits instead. ...

    Thanks, IBOHUNT.

    I agree about the business travel schedule - but I'm hoping it will ease up a bit this year. (Yah - I said that in 2014 as well :( )

    And I agree with training for goals - and...

    This - for group rides.

    But in the crits it's mostly Cervelo and Cannondale, with a few Specialized.

    I like one on each side:

    I was at TS 52 (Mount Airy, MD) most of Friday night and Friday evening - saw about 8 teams come through.

    The problem with RAAM is that it is NOT a very spectator-friendly sport.

    That's the difference between masters and Cat 4 / 3.

    It's a good reason to get out of Cat 5 ... but most of the masters races are faster than cat 4 / 3.

    Agreed. Groups like that are rare, though I've seen them on big century rides. Funny thing - they start out fast, at 25+mph, and tank about halfway through ... finishing in 6+ hours. The other...
