    The sign-up page is now open. https://wwfifty.weebly.com

    I'm in! I'm out of shape compared to VQ, but I'll be there... Suffering.

    @mtnbikej , @Sidewalk , @HBkites , @Voodoo Tom , @UPSed, @Mikie, @evdog, @bigringrider101, @mike and @anyone else who wants to ride all of the best Wrightwood has to offer in one day. Unsupported. :thumbsup:

    We had a foursome last year with mtnbikej, me, Amy, and Sharone... We certainly did not ride at race pace. We were social and had a good time. And we got each other through it... :thumbsup: Beers, burgers, and Sh!t talk at the Yodeler afterwards. :thumbsup:

    I'll run over the cat on the way up there....

    Okay, no I won't. I need to get out there to ride Wrightwood sometime, but not for that. :cool:

    You're gonna love it. :D

    No, but there is a cooler of beer waiting at mile 24/36... The only support of the day. If I'm not feeling it, I'll guard the beer and wait for the others to come back around. :whistling:

    I’m trying to think of a good excuse I can’t... :whistling:

    That’s a full box of Nope! Don’t need one. I’m out!
    (and I didn’t feel bad saying that...)

    All I had to do was realize the first climb is Acorn, a decending only trail.... :eek:

    The one and only aid station... Look how everyone is smiling! Piece of cake.

    And look at the pretty green bike in the bottom right hand corner... She was in her prime here. R.I.P. Chameleon. :( :cry:

    That's why I always get $$ up front for lodging on my trips. I have to say, with the exception of my latest Whistler trip, most people's commitment level goes up once they've invested a couple hundred bucks.

    Ha-Hem... This is the first year I've asked the boss for permission. Therefore, I've never bailed! :D

    Hmmm, this sounds like a great excuse to head west. Let me see how September goes fitness wise. I've been struggling with easy 20-25 milers lately...although I am signed up for the Tally Tango 160 in early October. What could possibly go wrong??

    I signed up, but I might have a conflict.....
    I'm seriously considering chopping off the unnecessary 12-mile loop. 36 miles make so much more sense (to me).

    I'm hoping that we are talking about 2019. My 2018 is booked solid.

    Intriguing...although I promised my wife I'd ride with her on another 50-mile ride the next day. Gotta get clearance to do both.
