    I'm looking forward to this! I'm on the fence between doing the Advanced ride and the Intermediate long ride. Do you know what the pace will be like for these?

    How many days a week do you ride and what is the average length. What locations do you ride? Did you find you Camelback? If not I may know someone that found one around the time you lost yours.

    Hey - I ride anywhere from 1-5 days a week, but usually only 2 or 3. A short ride after work is 7 miles. I usually do at least 10, often 15+. Are you a NEMBA rider? I can keep up at the LDT Tuesday night ride no problem for the full 3 hrs, if that gives you an idea of my fitness level. On the NEMBA site it says that one is an intermediate level ride, but compared to other NEMBA rides I've done in the area (Harold Parker Thursdays ) I'd say that group is definitely the fastest. I ride a ton at LDT and RM, also HP, Willowdale, and FOMBA once in a while.

    I have not found the camelback. It was a gray/green Asset - any chance you can message me with about this? I can give you my phone number to pass along, if that would help.

    I ride the Tuesday night LDT ride. You will be fine on the advanced ride. I hope to have your camelback on Sunday. I will send you a message that I have it.

    I'm on the fence too. What is the LDT ride? I've never been to either Great Brook Farm or RM. Is it technical or is there a lot of climbing? What would you say the pace of the advanced ride is? If I want can I drop back and join the intermediate group?

    Technical and climbing is very different to many people. The same question apply above. If you are riding 3 or more times a week and the rides average 14 miles then you are ok for the advanced ride. LDT = Lowell Dracut Tyngsboro state Forrest.

    Any chance of an 'all the miles, half the pace' group?

    Are you guys marking routes? I might swing in. Always a good time.
