This is sort of addicting...
 
The only thing that gets me through the work week are the prospects of the races on Saturday/Sunday.

Wish hadn't been such a p***y :rolleyes:

really?

the only thing that gets me through the work week is the paycheck that inevitably arrives every other friday.

Must suck to work for the money.

I work to live, not the other way around.

You should find a different career ;)

I dunno... my current one has taken me to Hawaii, Denver, Chicago, Minneapolis (ok that one's not quite as cool), and soon Portland.

It would seem that we choose meeting locations based on cycling potential, but I guarantee that's not the case... :innocent:

I'm the same way timmy. For my race on the weekend, I usually start looking forward to it on Tuesday.

This week is doomed since I'm not racing this weekend. I might not make it to Thursday.

Can't wait until the Wednesday night training crits start. I'm not sure I'll be able to handle the mid-week excitement.

I'm unintentionally working on it... :o
(Clarification: currently finishing my MA thesis; starting an MFA program this July.)

How long are you in town for?

Let me know if you're looking for a group ride.

Probably 2 weeks, depending on how many days I stay before or after the meeting. Mt. Hood is the only thing on my list of "Must-Rides"

It is addicting. Now does most of the stuff we say and do make a LITTLE bit more sense?

Jynx 04-21-09 01:53 PM

wait until you try meth ...

recursive 04-21-09 02:16 PM

It gets me through the week, the winter, the training, and all the rest.

Scummer 04-21-09 02:21 PM

I rather take coke. If you wanna race like a pro you gotta do it like a pro.

Depends on what "we" you're talking about.

What particular ride on Mt. Hood? Are you talking about climbing it or snowboarding or something?

If you are around for two weeks, you should come out to PIR on Tuesdays to race. Will you have your bike?

I drove the road around Mt. Hood last time I was out there and I definitely want to do that on a bike.

MIN posted a ~100 mile route to Mt. Hood that I plan on doing at some point this year.
