Paluxy Pedal in Glen Rose

Is anyone doing the Paluxy Pedal in Glen Rose on Saturday?

Why not? My partner and I just shattered the field at the Texas Time Trials held in Glen Rose this past weekend. After 500 miles of that, Paluxy Pedal shouldn't be too challenging.

Greg-O, the 29 mile route is the same as the Time Trial course. JS' first lap was 1:12, you oughta see if you can beat it.

I'll be at home on the couch.

I'm thinking the sprint time was 1:04 or so, so that's the time to beat.

Alternate idea, go ride up "The Wall" and video it for the guys that say recumbents can't climb.

I've done the wall. It's doable for sure, though it's a tough climb.

I can beat 1:12, but it'd be the last lap I did No way am I going to come close to 1:04 though. I ain't that good. Get me another 30 pounds lighter and we'll see.
