    I'd like to know where they ride so I can avoid that fiasco. 100 roadies on a group ride. That means they will be riding 20 abreast on the inside of the white line. I guess it would be safe to drive your car in the bike lane to get past them.

    I agree it probably would be best that you avoid it, after all how far can you ride a bike with no seat?

    I'll be there provided that:

    (a) it's not pouring rain
    (b) the temps are warmer than the Thanksgiving Day ride. (My toes are just now recovering.)
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    As the resident leg-shaving (former), chardonnay-drinking, wintertime roadie, I'll be there if it isn't raining. The pack usually strings out pretty good - fast anorexic leg-shavers up front and poky old fat guys in the back. Last time I did this ride there were about 50 people and we did about 30 miles or so.

    You'll have to talk to bikemech23 about the Surly. Last I saw the 1x1, it was at IMT waiting for some of his expert mechanic skills.
