    solstice cometh

    it is 337 hrs to the half way point of solstice 2013. Not that I'm counting.
    I'm just reminding myself what it's like to be riding tired in the middle of the night. Sometimes good and sometimes very very bad.
    Egggman , Tag ????
    Unglued, are you flying the brewery colours this year and will you have a pint to spare?

    Hmmm. That's all. Carry on.
    Cheers, Dave

    Yes, Dave, Team Flying Bison will be in the house and there will always be a pint with your name on it. We'll be at site 104. The only difference from previous years is that I will actually be riding a bike with gears...
    Strava made me do it....

    I don't suppose that would be a Flying Bison pint?

    Gears are good, by the way. It rhymes with beers and there must be some sort of connection.

    One year at the old 24HOA at Hardwood, we were sharing a camp site setup with another team for convenience to maximize use of available space (even though each team theoretically had their own site, albeit very sardine-like). A couple of the riders from this other team were really late in arriving on the Saturday night to start taking their share of laps.

    While waiting until after dark for them to show up, one of the 3 riders that had been taking up all the laps to that point defiantly explained that he was going out on the course with a full hydration pack with beer and wasn't coming back to the campsite with the numbered baton until his pack was empty.

    The 2 missing riders eventually showed up, but didn't get to do much in the way of laps since "beer man" didn't return until early AM Sunday morning. I'm fairly certain that a large portion of that time wasn't spent riding, but hopefully he found some friends and had some fun wherever he went to.

    I don't think the Beer Guy will be there until Saturday morning. Unglued Jr and I may camp out Friday but certain planets have to come into line first

    Oh man, that's funny. I had forgotten about that guy...

    My war cry for a while was "fat guy with no gears coming through!" But I would say this ironically

    Doing a 4 person co-ed no nights. It was a tough decision. I love night laps, I just hate being stirred from a haze at 2am to do them. Not to mention it wrecks me for a few days afterwards seeing as I really don't get any sleep. Yeah, I'm a wimp.

    Should be there Friday night, wondering around, acting friendly, all in hopes of mooching a beer.

    I know someone who fits the profile. Would he happen to go by the name Lee Dyson?

    Different dude. Find a couple more like-minded riders and they could have entered an entire team.

    Oh, I know a few guy's.

    Though if I was the team captain I would have been doing home brew in advance.

    As was I. No, not going to attend this year. We're sleep-deprived enough as it is! Good luck!

    I think with this year seeming to be the Mephisto's Mud Stud try outs. Maybe it would be a good idea to pack trail runners and a kids bike with back back harness. Just in case.

    If anybody is looking to purchase a solo spot my friend may have to sell his due to injury. Let me know if anybody is interested and I will pass on the info.

    He managed to sell
