    Demo 10K & 5k Sat. Nov. 3rd 2012

    It's Friday. I'm bored. I'm out of shape. I need motivation to get the juices flowing and the ride stoke going. So I'm throwing this out here. Early. The last attempt was rained out in Spring of 2011, so I want to shoot for the next month or two. This will also give me a little time to get some saddle time in to get "in shape".

    I want to shoot for the full 10K attempt. Realistically, I may get ~7K, but I want to really take a shot at completing something seemingly totally ridiculous.

    So here it is. I'm dangling the carrot! I'm throwing this out early so you guys can plan ahead or think up more entertaining excuses. Who wants to take a shot at this? Who's ready to enter the pain cave?

    Demo 10K 2011, March 19, 8am

    ************************************************** ************************************************** ****
    When: Saturday, November 3, 2012
    Where: Soquel Demo Forest, Highland Parking Lot
    Ride Time: 7:30am meet, 8:00am roll time

    I'd like to give it a shot. I usually ride demo solo, but I'm sure I would push myself harder with a group.

    This sounds more like entering the slowly and painfully suffering hole of hopelessness rather than the pain cave.

    Pending the date, count me in... for at least up to the point my legs start crying out for mercy and my knees buckle and my wife calls and demands release from the perils of being a parent.

    Sounds interesting... I've only ever done ~5k or so @ Demo but I'll give it a try if I can make the date.

    Best to do this on a cold day. I did 7500 one day when average temp was in the 40s. Any warmer and I would have stopped much sooner.
    I'm game for it.

    Awesome! First reply is from a chick. Of the shreddy variety, no less.

    I'm thinking 10/20 or 10/27.

    Well since you asked so nicely...

    You have a way with words tburger. And besides I haven't ridden with you in a way long time.
    So, IN!

    If I can maintain the fitness I have with my upcoming travel schedule I'll give it a go. Most I've ever done there in a single ride was 7k.

    I'm also not opposed to 11/3. If that works for more people.

    I'll think about it, if it's in November sometime. October is full for me.

    I thought about it and in that case we should get down to Aptos a couple times to eat and refill water (and add a few k footies) while hitting some more fun trails
