LABOR DAY Ride 1st September Mt. Hamilton


..........................................HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO EVERYONE!!!......................
.........................................................PETE
Really would like to do my first anniversary get together ride with The NorCal group. I have a couple of lurkers in mind that I would like to have ride with the group...Won't mention any names...ahem...Melissa...ahemm...Deyon...cough, cough...Jobob...Zippy.....Anyhoo kind of a NorCal Cheetahs meet Gladiators fun ride? Lets celebrate our group! ...that's 2 rides in 1 weekend=mini vacation

10:30 am Kirk & Gordan San Jose...10:30am gives me more time to get down from SF to SJ

List Begin:
1.Taxi777
2.Rumbutter
3.Britpower
4. SesameCrunch (maybe on a folder)
5. Jinws
6. mtnwalker
7. jonathanb715

42.Dudamas
43.Steverino
44.Jimples
45.Tapeworm21

Do I hear 99?...

So this ride has reached “Titanic” proportions…maybe “Queen Elizabeth”… The “Titanic” hit an iceberg! You all might want to pack a sandwich for yourselves, so we can spend some time on the top socializing. I don’t think the Burger King at the summit is open on Labor day. I think the Pizza guy would be pissed to have to drive that far…
Plan is the same as original. Nude volley ball will start at 1pm : ) See ya there!

I’ll put my phone # up the day before and any last minute plans, so make sure to check back.

Believe it or not, this will be my first time up the front side of Hamilton - I've meant to do it a bunch of times, but life keeps getting in the way.

I'm a maybe. I'll be traveling the week before, but hope to be back on Sat or Sunday, so then I can ride on Monday.

But I've never done Hamilton and I'm still the slowest around, don't know that I want to be an hour behind everyone??

Don't worry about it - not all of us climb like Taxi and Bostic and Bottlerocket - last time I rode with them, they dropped me on every hill. On a long climb like that, I'd imagine that everyone will splinter, and you'll find some folks going at a pace you're comfortable with.
