Hey DC, not you too. LOL. I'm trying to find exuses to NOT ride this ride. You aren't helping.


Seriously, are you in? What time do you have to get up in the A.M. to be there? Forget Tracy and Tiff, if you are in I finally have some incentive!

I won't know for sure until Friday evening. I have some serious deadlines at work. I am at work now. I am leaning towards going. Most of what I have has to be complete by the 29th prior to 6:00 PM Eastern, but there maybe some last minute stuff.

I really don't think announcing my participation is going to get more people on the ride Trac'. Now, stop it, you're making me blush. I'm innocent! [/QUOTE]

Whats the point? Its just a climb. When I first rode with Tracy she swore she couldnt do it. Then for some reason she decided to try. Well low and behold she did it. Now she climbs all kinds of challenging roads. By the way, there are alot of clydes doing these climbs every weekend. This route does not have alot of flats. The beginning and end, with a few miles in the middle. So most of the time ya get a nice break after the climbs. The first climb will take you about 30 minutes. Now thats not bad at all is it? All the ones in between are shorter and easier. The last climb is a bit longer, but the beginning and end are less then 5% GRADES. Now it does get steeper in the middle for about a mile, but you can do it. Its all about pacing. Dont let a small climb keep ya away from some of the best riding in the state. Oh, and the climbs are shaded for the most part.

I just wish I lived closer to some hills. Around here, I either have to throw the bike in the car, or ride 20 miles or so before I even get to what you would consider a hill.

seriously, if you made it up that last grade at mile high, you'll be fine. I know you don't recognize the significance but if its ME saying that, you know you can do it!

Besides, you've gained condition now that you've recovered from Mile High... don't want that to go to waste do ya?

Hey everybody! I'm new to these forums, but figured I'd say hi since I'll be at the Giro.

I signed up for the 100k <--- (K) not century. I'm not a very "strong" roadie and my few experiences up Old La Honda / Tunitas / Kings haven't been all that pleasant. Not to mention the mere reading of those names causes me to feel like my ambition is being sucked out of my body through my eyeballs. Maybe by this time next year I'll be in century shape.

Just wanted to say hi on the boards and jump into the list of names
