Well, the seven of us diehards who showed up enjoyed a nice 13-16 mile ride under sunny skies. The trails were dry except for the usual places.

For everyone who bailed - I sentence you to 1 hour on the trainer!! See you ALL next week.
which way to the donut farm??

hey roadie, did you get the digits you said you were going to get? Sorry again DD for the missed turn. For Ben the newbie did you all know that he is training for some 1000 mile bike trip across Ireland (sp). Hopefully he will be out there next week, so we can teach him some more stuff. Ally a professional DH was in attendance for the first time as well last night. She gave out some great tips for taking turns really fast. So all of you who skipped, I send you to the corner of the room with no dinner. heheheheehehehe :roll: See you all out there next week at 5:30 sharp for a pre lap.

Don't worry about the wrong turn. I was dragging pretty good yesterday. I am still nursing a cold.

Bojangles - You don't deserve such precious information!

Ben is riding with part of his family on a 400+ mile road ride across Ireland in August. I am not sure how much last night's ride helped in his training other than getting a few base miles in.

When I was 15 I had just gotten my first "real" bike (a road bike naturally) and 20 miles was an accomplishment - 400 miles in a week however? I think the best advise I gave him was "buy the best shorts you can con your parents into springing for!"

The now defunct Norther Exposure tour hosted by the LMB was an almost all off road tour of the UP that covered just under 400 miles in a week.. No bike shorts can salve that pain..... :shock:

It looks like I'm going to have to bow out of this week's ride....I have some official MMBA duties to attend to. If anyone wants to join me, I'll be going down to Monroe to check out the Munson trail and do a meet & greet with the bike shop guys/trail coordinators down there. Maybe next week!?
