    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?

    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. ...
