    Tempting the Rain Gods: Sunday morning ride anyone?

    Planned Ride Date: 6/24

    I don't care if I have to strap floats to my bike, I'm riding both Saturday and Sunday this week. Saturday morning will likely either be the PBA Distance Builder or the RBM 36mi ride @ 8AM.

    That leaves Sunday. Who's up for a small group, relaxed pace, maybe 35-40mi. Route, pace and starting location depends on who wants to join.

    EDIT

    Here's the plan as I currently have it:

    Start Time: 9am
    Location: Richardson Bike Mart (Richardson Location, Coit & Campbell)
    Distance: 20-27mi depending on who joins and how far we decide to go.
    Pace: Relaxed. I'm thinking of trying out the new wheels on my heavy and comfy bike so I'm not looking to break speed records.

    Man, this rain has been a major PITA. I get a new bike and can hardly ride it. Grrrr.

    Darn, why do I always find these threads late. Please keep my info, and pm me if the situation comes up again. I'm always for a relaxed, 17 or so mph pace, for a 35 or 40 mi. distance. I am in Fort Worth, but could be anywhere in the metroplex with a bit of notice.

    Ha, that is funny. Sorry, I was automatically thinking he posted this last Friday (because of the rain this past weekend). I didn't look at the date (or obviously read the entire post).

    Edited original post to be clear about the date. Right now the forecast shows a clear weekend, hopefully drying out enough that a trip down to white rock lake may be possible. I refuse to ride the trail down to the lake if it's rained within a few days due to the amount of mud that develops on the trail. (Doggus will say something about how it's not a problem with knobbies and fenders on his commuter about now)

    Paniolo - what's the pace and distance of the M&M. I probably don't have the legs in me for that, but the Sunday DB ride is too late in the afternoon for the summer heat.

    White Rock trail is not a problem if you are running fenders and nice 32c tires...like on my commuter!!!!

    Note: I no longer run the stem 'Netherlands Style', or the foot cages, or the bottom downtube cage or the yellow stickers. Old pic.

    I would be interested in a Saturday ride, early morning or mid afternoon (I may catch you next time since it is on a Sunday).

    crdean - depending on distance you want to go, you're welcome to meet me where ever I decide to ride on Saturday. Just depends on how early I want to get up. RBM rides are around the corner from me, PBA requires me to get in the truck and they start the earliest!

    I can keep up very well in a 25-45 mile ride (with no stopping) at about 17 mph without drafting. My training route (30 miles, flat) doesn't include hills, but I can hang pretty good. If that fits with anything you were planning to do, it might be a good ride for me. I may even have a friend come along depending on the pace (he is more in the 15 mph pace (without drafting).

    I know that with group rides, the pace could be about 19 or 20, and feel like about 17. So, I guess it's relative.

    Edit: I am doing the HHH 100 mi. this year, so I would be up for a challenge as well, even though I might be whipped at the end (that's what it is about, right?).

    It sounds like the PBA DB ride is what you are looking for. It is well organized and it is no-drop. They normally do between 35 and 50 miles. There are two groups: DB1 14-16MPH and DB2 16-18MPH. The only bad thing is that they leave at 7:00AM.

    Sounds like a nice ride, is there a website where I can get more info. on the ride. I am typically an early riser, the earlier, the better.

    Yeah, I'm kinda locked out of my account at PBA website right now. Forgot my password, and the 'remember password' button doesn't want to work for me. Emailed Rusty a few days ago without any response. If anyone could kindly drop a note on the forum for Rusty that I need my log-in info emailed to me I'd appriciate it.

    Cuda,

    Count me in Sunday AM. 16-18mph sound right? Maybe your location down to WRL and around. That puts it at about 35 miles.

    I can check out the trail tommorow or Thurs & let you know what it looks like.

    Chris

    I'll be there on Saturday morning at 9 for the RBM ride. Not sure what distance, but I'll either be on the orange Cervelo or the pearl white Centurion. Doubt there'll be two of either in the crowd. I've never met anyone in person from BF, so give me a shout if you see me.
