    Tentative approval for the 34 mile option. Which means camping and beer drinking so I'm good.
    This is just need to know information: Am i supposed to enjoy the irony or pity the sincerity?

    The ride sounded good until the reality of Friday's night ride, closing Che's and 4 hours of sleep became reality. Hopefully you can make it up for the rescheduled PEE once I figure out a date. The shirt is pretty cool and apparently well received. Nicely done sir.

    I registered on the site today for one loop and then I'm racing for my cooler full of suds.

    Anyone camping Saturday night and riding Sunday also? No use driving to Tucson Friday night just to return Saturday afternoon after the race.

    Reflective signs will be up for those arriving late on Friday. Most of us (Tucson crew) will be camping until Sunday morning.

    Check out the AES Google group also for info, maps and GPX files.

    +1 on WC. Sadly, I think this year I will not be making a snowboard trip this year.

    In reality, it is a group of us that do help with the camping and organizing. Props to them.

    Good times, if a little windy! Looking forward to some pictures. I forgot my camera during the ride(doh!), but here's one from the night before.

    You COULD do it on a geared bike, but I wouldn't reccomend it!

    Derailleurs are for failures!
