    Pffft!
    Careful, you could get kicked off Team Social Pace for talk like that!

    Some tweaker who rides UCSC dirt regularly. He's usually found around the tanks, near certain postal type trails, or the railroad tracks.

    Total tweaker.

    The best part of this thread? If it is riding weather, the whole lot of you doing this ride aren't on my local trails

    The worst part? If the weather looks to be shitty, with the wife out of town, my two options are this ride or Kennedy with ancient rascal.

    In! Hopefully with my brand new road bike. Yeah, this year I'll actually ride this road ride with a road bike.

    Since my Niners are playing my other favorite team in the NFL, the Ravens - I'm gonna HTFU and get through this ride. I have to be mounted on the couch at kickoff which is 6:30pm EST (3:30pm PST). Brother John vs. Brother Jim... facking epic!!! If Kap brings this home, I see a MVP trophy with his name on it.

    To my TSP'ers... there are two sports that I love: MMA and Football. I know you guys don't understand my fanaticism, but my beloved football only comes home a few months out of year! Speaking of MMA, Rampage is fighting next week .

    From Last Year

    It looks like about 3 hours of riding and a little under 4 hours including the regroup at the summit and a mellow descent back to the parking lot. If we roll around 9, back by 1 and in plenty of time for a 3:30 kickoff.

    No excuses.

    I'll be riding to the kickoff point from the Willow Glen/Campbell area if anyone is interested in meeting up and riding out there.

    One more week!

    weather is looking good.

    Is there any interest of setting up a tv there and watching at the lot? I do have the mtbr canopy.

    How long should this take to do on a FS mtn bike, say starting from Grant Park? Assume TSP speeds as I'm no roadie. I wouldn't put slicks on my bike for one ride.

    Anything goes—no requirement for a “fast” bike—run what you normally ride (OK, so I “cheated” by putting 24"x3.5" slicks on mine ):

    From Grant, you're about 9 miles from the top and a slow 1:20 should do it. If you're a medium speed climber, I'd say 60 mins on a FS with knobbies.

    I think I can make it, but that Costa kid laid down a pretty mean KOM time last fall, so I'm thinking more beer friendly pace.

    I'll be there and at a some what social pace. I think you beat me to the top last year. I have slicks on my bike so it'll be a bit easier going up.

    Dion, You going to make it? Sounds like you could use a TSP ride.

    Remember, I have a bottle of Pliney for YOU and no one else, after last year’s fiasco with that chick telling you that you couldn’t have your own. In fact, lemme hitch a ride with you to the starting point so I can bring several beers with me rather than trying to juggle them for 16 miles from my house on my SS.

    Firstly, pick a new avatar.

    Second, HTFU. You can't carry a few beers for 16 miles, one-way?

    (1) The Runny Poo Poo show is everything to everyone here in ’merica, (right next to Budweiser and NASCRAP) especially for the ones with quadruple chins. I’m showing my ’mericun pride, dude.
    (2) LOL! Yes, if I bring my backpack I can lug them, but I will be wearing my team kit, and in the team packet it clearly states that I should be wearing my team kit in an unobstructed fashion, such that my team’s logo as well as sponsor logos should be all clearly visible.

    Just bring a pack. I have a little rei flash pack that just so happens to be a great beer hauling pack! I'm planning on stashing it in the car/cooler of some generous soul who rides up at a similar pace.

    I thought I signed up to carry the keg on my carbon road bike. I was told that it could hold it no problem. I am also going to clamp a B.O.B. trailer on to the carbon seat stay and tow up my bbq. This carbon stuff is amazing! Super strong in every way. The crackling noise means I have it tight enough I think. I will be riding at TSP pace due to a major sickness right now! This has been a hell of a weak with a very sick kid, grandma passing away, wife being sick and now I have the dreaded sickness. I will pause here for a collective sigh for my sorry for my butt self! Ok I got a bit derailed and it might be due to an unusually high fever but If I can mount my bike, I am going up. See you all there!

    Its bad form to pass a keg, so you should be kom this year.

    I think we should also tote a big screen up the hill and catch the webcast of the cx worlds.

    I'm in. I'll probably be in the pain locker after Grant Ranch, but I won't be only person crying for sag wagon.

    Now, what to put in the slow cooker this weekend? Hmmm
    Some pain is physical and some is mental, but one that's both is dental.

    Mild grade the whole way. I don't think it is ever over 6%.

    Mud adds the extra weight Brett is going for. With the dried up mud, he met his MEWQ (Minimum Extraneous Weight Quota). Who else races with a frame bag stuffed with enough rations to survive the Apocalypse?

    2013 Superbowl Mt. Hamilton ride - Sunday, Feb 3

    So this is gonna hurt-funny thing I look forward to this ride! Each year I say gotta train for it-and each year I may get one or two rides in on the road bike before it. Someone's gotta be last.

    Dion used to have a really big chest so does that count? There are always women on this ride but a lot of them don't post on here.
    They never made the "Slowster"
