    well yeah i agree it's a bit easier a first gathering in SNT but this is a very kind offer and we can go to SNT whenever we whant but to Puebla no.
    i'd say we go to Puebla this time and next saturday we go to SNT and invite the last biker and we camp on SNT. So if you decide for Puebla I'm in

    Eeekk I'm very sad to say that work calls! I almost never have to work saturday, but this time I have.... Probably will for this month. Yuck!!!!!!!!! While this leaves me sunday, I do have to finnish some homework to catch up with some classes that I've missed, so I can't do a whole day outing, probably only something half day. If you have the opportunity to go to Puebla, please ride it out and just please post your experience! It's always nice to ride somewhere new, especially if you know it won't be something you'll be able to do every weekend. So just go and enjoy Puebla!

    Snt

    OK folks

    It looks like we'll be sticking with SNT for this Sunday. I'd hoped to be able to do Saturday afternoon too, but I've got work commitments.

    So, 9am at the parking lot. Let's ride!

    I just hope (from the heart) that the kind invitation is still open.

    I'm sorry for not being able to make it this time. Opinions were divided and a mess was about to create.

    Again, thanks!!

    Yeah, thanks a lot anyway thelastbiker.
    So, what route are we going to take?? Please please lets go to the downhill trails. It is a long climb but its worth it. Besides, after "la pared", the climb is much more easier than "la virgen". In some parts its even flat.

    This sounds like its going to be fun, I have been off the bike for the last three weeks with a nasty bronchitis (thanks Mexico City) so I might not be on top form but I will try to make it on Sunday.

    I am about to finish the conversion to Stan's No Tubes so lets see how it behaves.

    Oh, yeah.... and I was just been operated on my liver (thanks Tequila), actually I will ride with half of it and the cut still unhealed. So I think I'll not be in top shape by sunday.

    Mada, what a wuss!!!!

    Seriously... I hope you've been feeling fine and be ready to rock on sunday.

    Spot, right?? C'mon... don't make me feel like a granny on the climbs! I don't care if you drop me on the descents. I have always an excuse for being slow there.

    Translation from bike slang to plain layman english:

    "I will enjoy your suffering. I've been riding two hours all mornings, doing intervals and endurance rides on the weekends by hauling a concrete filled car tire with my bike. I'm in so good shape that I will destroy you all since climb one. That Kabush sucker ain't no rival for me.

    I've been testing this new tire set-up that will allow me to shave 10% of rolling resistance and grips like octopus' tentacles.

    Suffer you jerks!

    Mada"

    BTW... are you dumping your Spiders or just dumping the tubes??

    yestarday a microbus smashed my legs in 25 places and I was going to buy bionic legs, but I only had the money to buy one (saving for my bike). On the other leg I had to put a banana. I have to get used to my new legs so I dont know if I will be on my top shape by sunday.

    Just dumped the tubes. The Spot came with some High Rollers and I am not quite happy with them, hopefully this will help and I won't have to get that pair of Nevegals that have been calling my name lately...

    Sorry if this is a spam but I'm spamming indeed.

    How long had it taken you to do the planned ride??? To that, add a couple hours... we're old.

    Well, we usually do it in about 3 hours and a half or a bit more at a normal pace. Sometimes we take a bit more if we stop to do a part of the trail a couple of times.
    So how much is a couple of hours more?? 10? 15? We can maybe sleep over there if you like, there are some nice cuddly sheeps to hug if you feel afraid at night.
    Oh, and how many are we going to be?

    A couple of hours is generally two hours... but your pace seems about right.


    MADA.... Nooooooooooooooooo!!! You man gotta be freaking kidding!!! Say it isn't so!!!

    Oh, well... as a family man, I understand. It'll be next time. Hope they would be fine soon. If by any stretch of luck they get better by the morning and you're showing up, it'd be cool. Otherwise you'll be sorely missed.
