    THe Space Race - Houston, TX - Sunday April 10

    http://www.spacerace.org/index.htm

    I'm thinking of doing this on Sunday, watching the weather forecast and will decide by Saturday.

    She says she's interested in going, and I'm sure my stepson will also want to go, so we will have 3 riders!

    Update: After trying 4 seats and attempted fits by 2 shops, I think we've decided to sell my wife's bike. The seat can't go far enough back to get her knee over the pedal spindle, and even if it did she would then be way too stretched out with her hands on the brake hoods. She's never been comfortable on it and as a result hasn't ridden it in at least 3 months. So she won't be riding on Sunday.

    To pique some interest in next years ride, here's my experience: friggin' fun and friggin' WINDY. Arrived late (9am) thanks to my transportation and did the outbound leg of the 60 into headwinds with no other riders (read: no draft). Riders on the return leg saw my pitiful situation and offered encouragement. On the turnaround, the tailwind was glorious, and many a rider was caught and passed. Finished in about 3.5 hours (did I mention the headwinds? ) and had a good time.

    You were the sag in the champagne colored car? If so, awesome! I was one of the very last people to get on the course along with two of my friends. I ride a yellow bike! A champagne colored car followed us for the first few miles.
