See y'all there!
to all the rest of you goons - this is a really cool ride, and the Randonneurs are the coolest riders Ive been priviledged to be dropped by - lots of RAAM qualifiers and competitors in this group, and if I say so myself, a few record-holders. It's gonna be a blast!
Yeah, it was a great ride! I ran out of gas at the end. Should have eaten something out at Tioga. It took me about 5 1/2 hours but I finished. Robin and Val helped out alot.
Glad you had a good time, E. Randonneuring with this bunch is so dang fun. Wait until you're with a big group for 200k. This group eats at every control like it's their last meal anyway. We had pizza and clif bars at the tioga control, but we had the benefit of knowing the last stretch was the worst.
