    ... and if we just ... 2010 Winter Spike!tacular

    Come on out for a great time! This is a really low key event. Last year's event brought out the full spectrum of competitors. Most were just out for a good time. Some borrowed bikes when they got there, some appeared to have never had ridden before, and a few were out to put it down. At the end of the day, everyone had a great time! Come on out and ride with us. No need to be nervous, this is just about the fun! And spectating is a fine option too. Hope to see you on the 13th!

    Studding tires is not fun... almost done with the first, though!

    Looks like the race is still on. Thought the storm was going to drop too much snow, but we might be fine. I will be checking out the lake this evening and making a final call. Will post up again late this evening (after riding!!!).

    It's On!!!

    [SIZE="6"] The Spike!tacular is ON !!![/SIZE]
    Checked the ice this evening and it's looking pretty good. There is about 1.5 inches of sugary snow on it right now. Should be much easier to prep than last year's slush-fest.

    Bikes and Tires available
    I have one bike with manufactured studs mounted on it, that anyone is welcome to use (might have a second similar bike, but don't bank on it). I also have five 26" homemade studded tires hanging in the garage that are also available to anyone. First come first serve. Let me know...

    Looking for help

    1. I plan to get there for 10:30 on Saturday morning to snow blow the course. If conditions stay the same, it should go pretty quickly. Please bring a shovel and the necessary gloves and muscles to run it. Another snow blower wouldn't be bad either, but only if it is not much trouble for you.
    2. Tomorrow evening I will be home alone and prepping the trophies. If you want to stop by and lend a hand, I am pretty sure I could use it.


    Reminders

    * Sign-up from noon to 12:30. Event starts at 1:00!!!
    * Entry Donation: Non-perishable food items to go to the “Parish Cupboard” in West Springfield.
    * There is no entry fee. Non-perishable donations are requested.
    * Helmets Required!


    Hope to see everyone Saturday!!!
