    Thumbs up Beanstalk Metric Century RUSA Populaire (Sunday)

    Beanstalk Metric Century RUSA Populaire
    Sunday 08/2/08, 8:00 AM start

    Join us this Sunday, August 2, 2009 for the first in a series of RUSA
    populairs in memory of cyclist and Hotter-N-Hell (HHH) fanatic Mark
    Sachnik. The next three Sunday's will feature a different ride of 62
    km or longer and all riders are welcome. You need not be a member of
    RUSA or LSR to ride. There are no entry fees. These rides are FREE.

    This Sunday, August 2nd, we will roll out of Princeton for the
    Beanstalk Metric Century. Ride start at 8:00 AM from the parking lot
    at the corner of N 2nd Street and E College Ave across from Lacy
    Elementary School in Princeton, TX. Bring a friend! This is an
    excellent opportunity to introduce someone to LSR, the sport of
    randonneuring and possibly test the long distance waters for some.

    The main requirements for this ride are:
    1. Sign the waiver
    2. Wear a helmet
    3. Carry a control card, get it "validated" at the turnaround and turn
    it in at the finish.
    In exchange for the above, ride insurance is provided.

    There are no official ride/pace leaders. Ride at your own pace or with
    a group. There is no formal SAG support and no rest stops - you may
    choose to purchase food/drinks at stores along the route. The ride is
    non-competitive and all finishers from first to last are given equal
    recognition.

    Please RSVP, even if tentative, so that we have enough control cards
    for everyone. Hope to see ya there!

    The Rides:
    Sunday, August 2, 2009, 8:00AM Beanstalk (100 km - 62 mi)
    Sunday, August 9, 2009, 8:00AM Bobcat Bite (103 km - 64 mi)
    Sunday, August 16, 2009, 8:00AM Marko Polo (170.6 km - 106 mi)

    Please RSVP to gre099 at gmail.com if you plan to attend.

    That should be 62 MILES or longer, 100k or longer, FYI.

    I was planning to come, but I had my bike shop switch cassettes on my spare wheel set, and I didn't know how to adjust the derailleur, so I didn't have a reliable bike to ride. Maybe next Sunday...

    Hats off to all of you. Ya'll are some strong riders! The heat got to me so I didn't complete the ride. Didn't even make it to the control. I do want to try again at the other ride in Celina, Tx.
    I was talking to Steve, the guy that rode the recumbent with his wife. He spotted my on the side of the road drinking water and checked in on me. He was telling me that the really good riders of the group hadn't shown up today! Shows how much more I need to work out and build up to.

    next sunday ! i wish i had seen this thread earlier this week , i was bored out of my mind today
    Yep, it's sad. Local cycling around here does deserve better. But there's always that "not invented here in Texas" inbreed attitude to deal with as well which stops progress.
