    HIP/VIP Schedule

    With HIP coming up we need to cement some plans. May 16, 17 and 18

    SSINGA isn't going going to be able to make it but I think he had the rides planned out. So Sean pipe on in when you get a chance.

    We have the Industry Nine tour/pump track cemented in on Friday, but we need to nail down a time.

    The guys at Cane Creek want to ride and they are offering up a tour again for this year if we can get it into the schedule.

    I am catching a lot of this in second hand, but I know the area really well along with some of the other regulars. MarkZ06 (T2Bikes.com) is handling the raffle for the frames and the huge pile of shwag that we got hooked up with.

    Here is what I am thinking...

    Friday - Industry Nine Tour/Pump track in the afternoon and a Bent Creek (Green's Lick) ride early evening.

    Saturday - The Laurel Mtn. ride that SSinGA planned on doing (this is a killer NC singletrack epic) in the morning/early afternoon...then lunch and a ride that evening. Maybe Black Mtn.

    Sunday - Dupont or Heartbreak Ridge

    Let me know your thoughts...

    Heartbreak is a must for Sunday. What route were you thinking? Climb Kitsuma from Old Fort, desecend Kitsuma, cross the railroad and climb Curtis Creek to BRP, then pick up Heartbreak? --That would be an awesome epic.

    Stoked for sure.

    We went up the toll road and then the dh dumps at the car. I'll have to give Marty over at ProBikes a call...she is the one that led the ride for Mark's birthday.

    If this is somewhat the schedule and it looks like we're doing Heartbreak Ridge on Sunday, what about doing Dupont Friday morning?

    Do you have a planned time to be on the bikes for the Saturday and Sunday morning rides? I'd love to meet up with you all on Sunday and put some faces on all these Homer Names.

    I am afraid only the Ventana is available to win. I am definitely going to win the HL. I haven't won anything, ever in my life. I'm due boys!! And I even bought a ticket this time.

    Ha. Hopefully whoever wins the HL (I don't have a prayer given my random drawing luck) enjoys the snot out of it. Sniff, sniff.

    Mudpie has the hookup on a tour guide for Laurel on Saturday. Probably start in the morning sometime around 9 - 10 meeting time would be my guess.

    HIP/VIP Raffle & Arrival Times

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Alright as of 5-13-08 we have sold...

    81 Highline
    42 El Fuego tickets

    Some guys have chosen to pay via check, which I have not received. Needless to say you will not win unless you pay.

    I will accept ticket purchases up till the drawing on Saturday, but you are at the mercy of my ability to get online. If you are not added to the drawing you will get a refund.

    I will be staying at my cabin Wednesday through Sunday. If you are coming in early and have a car feel free to come to Saluda. I will have some beds for Wednesday evening only. PM me if you want to get together Wednesday or Thursday.

    The attendance list seems to be getting smaller so I think that everyone will end up with some swag.
    You want to ride behind someone who does something that?

    Sunday?

    How about Sunday times? -- If Heartbreak is the route, its a solid five-seven hour ride I'd guess, depending on how folks roll.

    After thinking about it for awhile...we might be a little spent for the Heartbreak climb...Dupont might be a better option for Sunday.

    The post I have been putting everywhere else...

    Our annual Homers in Pisgah ride is this weekend for those interested.

    Friday - Industry Nine Tour followed by a Bent Creek ride
    Saturday - Laurel Mountain in the morning and Black Mountain in the late afternoon
    Sunday - Dupont

    The big ride is historically the first ride on Sat.

    There are two frames being raffled off to benefit the Pisgah SORBA chapter that will be given away Saturday night.
    You can purchase the raffle tickets here...and you don't have to be present to win.
    Turner Highline
    Ventana El Fuego

    We also have a ton of shwag that is going to be given away Saturday night. So much, that it looks like everyone is leaving with at least something that shows.

    If you have any questions...email me at rsutton1223 at gmail dot com. I am all crackberry'ed out these days...so I'll be able to answer your email from the road.

    If we hit Dupont on Sunday what time is that ride likely to finish? I need to bail before midday to have any chance of being at work on Monday.

    Bummed!!

    Well, I wont be able to make this year because I have a baby that will be here in a week, so leaving the house for a weekend when a baby is almost here could mean leaving the house for good. Just kidding!!! but, I will miss it and hope ya'll have a great safe time.

    As for the Heartbreak ridge ride. You know you can shuttle that whole downhill from the Blue Ridge pkwy that we rode up for Marks b-day ride. You just don't turn at the two campers where we started descending. You literally bomb down everything we climbed that day then at Ridgecrest resort you cross over to Kitsuma and do a small mile climb and get about 7 miles of descending. So, about 21 miles of descent with maybe 2-3 miles of climbing. That sounds like a good day.

    I'm not a local, so maybe someone else has an alternative route. I don't know of any way to get up to the BRP without alot of driving, but like I said, I could be wrong.

    Blackagness & I may be cutting it close to get to I9 by noon, but we can always leave earlier. We are 6 hours away and are already leaving at 4:30AM. Nothing a little espresso won't fix.

    Cheers! Man on man am I getting excited!!!

    Meet at I9 ~1:30

    Saturday - Laurel Mountain in the morning and Black Mountain in the late afternoon
    Meet at Sycamore cycles at 9 am

    Sunday - Dupont
    TBD Saturday night

    Good luck with that, right 'Zilla? Watch out for instructions that try to direct you onto train tracks; I'm not sure the backwoods of NC are fully GPS direction compatible

    You guys have fun!

    Look for the Excapades gentleman's lounge and turn left just before it. Maybe you could trade a few pretty pink spokes for a lap dance.
