    I'm most likely down for that. I've got my Dad and little Bro coming into town and looking to ride, so I've got to verify timing.

    If I recall correctly, park rangers are allowed to use radar. If its a State Park, which i think it is, I believe the rangers are considered state troopers. bummer.

    they may be permitted - but he didnt have it - he waved his hand (for me to slow down) out his window as he was driving up the driveway - i gave him a WTF look that he didnt like - ticket written as "disregarded post speed" - i WASNT speeding - he just didnt like my attitude... oh well

    I'll join you guys this week. I may actually get there a little earlier and ride around a bit but I'll meet you in the boat launch parking lot at 6:00 pm.

    I'm having a crappy day at work, so I might show up early and pound a few miles before the ride. I'll be around the docks at 6.

    i had a blast last night even though i felt like i was put through the ringer! That was the first time really riding with a group in a long time (12+ years!) and it was inspirational to get my butt in gear ( no pun intended) and get my endurance back!

    Thanks for the fun ride and the patience! i really appreciated it.

    T’was a good time indeed… now if I could only find a way to ignore the sharp pains and bruise on my knee cap!!! who put those rocks on the trail?

    Bill and I put in a few more miles on the other side to finish up the night…

    I never have a problem taking a break to wait for someone – I often welcome it!

    Well, somebody had to crash to make the ride complete. For once, it wasn't me.

    I'm not feeling too bad today considering I hadn't ridden for two weeks (except a quick 30 minute loop last weekend). Counting the loop on the blue trail I did before meeting up with you guys, it appears I logged about 11 miles.

    I'll be riding again this weekend, maybe with gears if I get around to replacing the seals in my fork. I'm thinking Sunday will be MTB day since Saturday is looking busy and I'll probably only have time for a road ride. I'll post here if I'm going anywhere interesting.

    Gears!?!? Traitor! Had a good time as always, only wish I had more time. Hoping I can get out next week but I'm not sure how this moving thing is going to work out. I'd like to ride Saturday but again, not sure about my schedule.. I'm about 75% convinced about going to Fairhill for the poker run, but I won't know for sure if I can until Tomorrow.
