    No CF in the bunch, either!

    Nice passing the plastic on the hills, while riding old, lugged steel.

    Great to meet locals, empty_set, YuriB, and minneso, as well as Eric_H, a great rider from the GWN who latched up for a couple of rides.

    I said it yesterday, and again this morning to some.

    Thank you very much all for coming out, it was a blast.

    Barry and zMud - no words - thanks guys.

    Good to meet everyone else - Empty_Set and Yuri - finally! Really sorry you missed the BBQ Yuri, it was fun.

    ATP - what on earth can be said? The man is a monster, full on diesel, and a chef to boot. Also just happens to be one of the nicest guys you could ever meet.

    Thanks so much for coming out and sharing your weekend with us.

    I wasn't fast enough on the camera to get the bobcat yesterday.....

    My GPS for yesterday says 38.3 miles - 3800 feet of up.

    Like I said - rollers.

    Thanks guys. ( and Kikki!)

    Same time next year???





    PS - 'Gel - great to meet you. Thank for coming on over. Sorry about the outcome, get better soon. We'll do it again.

    The number I came away with is 10,273-my estimate of the number of seemingly fit 175 pounders that have ridden with ATP thinking they were going to pound the linebacker on a bike but end up crying for mommy.
    And why does the camera only add 25 pounds on me??OK 20 pounds down for Moab, I am going public with it.

    Thx everyone, time to work on the Kirk.

    and just like Prince after playing B-Ball I'm gracious enough to cook a meal afterwards

    Barry you ain't the only one. Let's keep dropping the lbs, as the pounds go off the power goes up. I need to drop about 25 to get into fighting form, it's just I'd have to spend less time with my best friend, beer. Awesome route btw.

    ATP makes awesome ribs (and jelly and chicken), and if he drops 25 lbs he'll be ready for Le Tour!

    I had a blast, and am ready to do it again whenever y'all are ready.

    PS--I had ribs as a mid morning snack at 2many's, I guess I just missed you by a couple of minutes, I was late because I was scarfing down b21's homemade pancakes.

    PPS -- This looks like rollers to me:

    I just heard from Innergel.

    Good news, he's no longer in the hospital.

    Bad news, spending three days sick on vacation while the other maniacs are out have a blast is not fun.

    He said he spent 8 hrs in ER today, but is finally on the mend.

    Sorry big 'Gel.

    Not the vacation we wanted you or Mrs. 'Gel to have.

    It was great meeting you and riding together for the time we did.

    See you in the AM.

    Sorry ATP, I guess I forgot about that first "loooong" section out to Seven Springs.

    Me Bad.

    But we all got there and back, so it's all good. At least we didn't have "Wrong Way Hal" with us, we'd still be out looking for him.

    And yes - there be leftovers. Lots of leftovers. I'm going to be eating pork products for about 3 weeks I think. ( Oh Darn! )

    Team Luddite.

    I like that.

    It has a "ring" to it.

    A bit of "snap" - like a good steel frame.

    I like "Team Luddite" too. Here in N. Ohio we've formed a loosely knit group of riders. We call ouselves "Team OFFA." That stands for "old farts falling apart."
    Before you criticize someone walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you criticize them you'll be a mile away & you'll have their shoes.

    it was all those little jabs in barrytown-kikoville from mile 20, I like dieseling up long grades but those steep lil bastids ain't no fun. Oh well, they weren't as bad as the first days climb to the castle

    Breakfast

    A new taste sensation.

    Rib Omelette.

    I highly recommend it.

    ( with some pepperjack cheese! )

    I keed, you were the most impressive rider out there. I would be honored to hold your wheel, especially to whip that young punk, yellow line Ed.

    I just want to know when you are coming back for more?
