I'll be there. Hopefully on my freshly Campy'ed road bike, else I'll be the weirdo on the single speed.

Man, if I'd only known, I'd have come from DFW for this one. Let us know earlier next year and I'm there!

I would love to, especially because I've only done one of the recommended rides leading up to the 150, but I cannot. Going to the NHRA races.

Should be a good one though, post back here to let us know if it was worth it.

I think that new 10 mile route looks mighty challenging Leaning toward the 62.

Is your daughter still coming along?

There is a fun ride yes?

Does it not leave by pace? Like everyone that can do 18 mph leaves now....sort of thing....

If that is the case I will be going with the 18 mph crowd...I will do the 104 or I will die...I am ok with either out come.....

Also, I will be wearing a Red Bicycles of Tulsa Jersey....

http://www.bicyclesoftulsa.net/

It looks like the logo at the top left....sort of....

If you see me please say hi....I will be on my own and I promise I will not tag along and make your day hell....lol

Yes. We'll probably be starting in the 14mph group doing the 42 mile ride.
Hope to see you there.

You couldn't do that. Although if my Peugeot is not ready, then I'll be out there putting myself through hell.

I'll be either on a freshly Pimped Peugeot Success, or spinning my beer gut away on my Schwinn Madison. Look for the Spider-Man jersey/Camo camelbak.

Space Race is a great ride. I'm doing the century...hoping to avg 22+! A lot of that depends on if we can find a relative fast group to hook up with...

You know that superstition about washing your car and it will rain the next day? That count for bikes too? If so, go ahead and blame me for the rain yesterday. My LBS finished pimping my bike on Saturday. So yesterday was the first ride on the new drivetrain.

Next year we should have a post ride meet up, to wash the bikes. If it rains that is.

It was a great ride...despite the rain..it was a warm rain at least....I was glad I finished, it was my longest ride this season...before was 55 miles...glad my new saddle worked out....I had one flat (front tire) SAG was all over me and had a pump as well...great support...

I could fault nothing about it at all....

We should do a post ride meet....that would have been cool.
