    Possibly in for this but I’m more of an 8mph average kinda chap. Really depends on my wife being down to wait for Geek Squad to come for the 3rd time.

    For some, size matters. But that 9 mph thing threw me for a loop...

    TFPU, shawn.

    interested..... Should be finished by 10ish, right?
    Enough time to make it to the NICA fundraiser after. Nice!

    If we keep the pace, that put's us at 10:30. Plenty of time.

    It looks like Sunday is my day to ride this weekend... I might get a short something or other from the house on Saturday.

    Have fun out there. Motorway is a riot, as usual... :thumbsup:

    I’ll be there...... with my SS.
    I’ll get dropped before the first hill.
    My race pace is gate to Maple in 2:30 (with gears).
    I’ll be happy with a 3.5 hours (for the loop).

    I've only done the loop twice with gears, and both runs were a little slower than on the single speed. You might surprise yourself.

    Thanks for setting it up, and inviting others to join. I was feeling good, and I wanted to push my self a little bit.

    It was obvious that when you choose to push the pace nobody in the group could match you.

    Now I just need to figure out the second half of CC on SS.
    Yesterday’s ride gave me a confidence boost. Six more weeks of hard work and dietary control, and I should be good to go.
