    I plan to be there, but likely only for the 20-mile loop. Been having some problems with my left big toe. I'm planning to race on 3/24, and hope it's better by then.

    I am also doing the 20 mile loop, time restraints for my partner, and family soccer obligations for me are pressing the schedule that day. Latch onto the tandem and enjoy the draft.

    Hiya, PAlt! <wavin'>

    Long time no see post! Haven't seen you on the Charlotte Area Riders thread in a while! We're gonna have another lunch soon. I've already met with two BF'ers who work in the downtown area twice for lunch. If you'd like to join us next time, schedule allowing, just let us know!

    You, too, Serotta, if you're game!

    Workin & Lurkin...Lot's of training for events this summer (RAIN, BOOTY,etc). Posting occasionally on 50+, Road, and Long Distance. Lunch only on weekends, work Uptown, but on a trading floor, so lunch is always a scarf down at my desk. If you're at the ride next weekend perhaps we can say howdy's for a bit. Don't know how I'll be decked now but know better as week & weather progress. Saw you're kicking in Hickory, keep at it

    Thanks for the update, PAlt! I'm now a wild and crazy women's Cat 4!

    Are you going to be at the race in Stanly County on 3/24? <curious Vega look>

    Not there - training sched. says 4 hrs with some intervals on the 24th. Got a coach who's kicking my tail so I'll be in shape to do these summer distance events. I'm either going to able to fly by July or the best looking 51 yr old corpse you've ever seen

    Ummmmm, I about felt like that during todays ride. Really pushed myself, thanks to a couple of club riders. Had to soak for awhile when I got home.

    VV how did the cycling shopping go today? Inquiring minds want to know (along with the nosey ones).
