I told my wife we were going to be riding from Sloan's Lake to Golden and back... she says "That's IT???"

I'll get about 10 miles on top of that, riding to the lake and back home. Maybe I'll have to make a grocery run in the morning... get myself good and warmed up before hand. hehe

I'm looking forward to the ride, it'll be lots of fun!

yeah yeah yeah, some of us are 'restarting' our season . I know I haven't ridden outside since the week before Christmas. Riding to Sloan's from my house would make it a 50 miler, but the girlfriend isn't up for that yet.....

Yeah, well... I've been 'training' 5x a week with this route: https://www.routeslip.com/map.php?map=20944&

With a 9 hr break in the middle, of course.

I've been riding in my basement and have yet to even make it to the stairs(about 4' away). But I keep pedaling away.

I'm up for any time. 10 PM works well... we should be able to make it there and back before the battery on my main lights goes out, and the traffic is nicer.

Anyway... I'm good for whenever.

30 minutes to get from 8th and Bannock to Sloan's Lake? Shouldn't be a problem if they don't keep ya late.

9news says it'll be clear, Weather.com says chance of snow, as does Weather Underground.

Though how you get much snow with a low temp of 35 is beyond me. *boggles* I think it'll be decent.

I would rather be early than late so....12:30.....

I'm nervous because I've never ridden this bike on the road, it has always been on the trainer. I'm not entirely sure it's even road worthy yet. I don't have anything ressembling a road kit if something should go wrong. I'm not sure my fit it right and I'm pretty sure I dont look good in spandex.

Or all this could just be the n00b jitters.

Off topic, I used to live near the junction of Cherry Creek and Highline and work in the Tech Center so I know that commute well.

Before SE Denver I lived off Green Mountain and worked downtown so I know BMclaugh's commute as well.

Now I live in Golden and work in Longmont, I don't know that commute.........

I'd come along but everyone would need extra tubes and patch kits.
Actually, I have to wax my head.....or is it watch my son?
Count me in for a different ride.
