    The Chicago Labor Day Weekend Lounge Ride -- 2013 Edition

    Looks like it's going to be Saturday, August 31.

    Time and location TBD, but I'll edit this post as we nail that down.

    Who's in?

    Here's hoping...I will need to get a pass and some endurance back...I'm subscribed now, though.

    Hope you guys can make it. it's a good group out there.

    And don't worry about being out of shape. I had a dismal ride last year after having health issues all year. This year hasn't been any different.

    I should be there.
    I am totally in shape if round is a shape. If you haven't been on this ride, don't worry. we ride slow enough I feel fast.

    I haven't replied because I'm not sure that I can make it.
    I give the odds as 50-50.

    PS. I also remember that last year's appearance check bounced.....
    This year, i'll only take cash.

    Buying parts to hang on your bike is always easier than getting fit.

    If you feel wimpy and weak, get out and train more, ya wee lassie!

    fast is relative sport..............I ride slow enough that EVERYONE feels fast....and I am really fast.....FOR ME

    although we did smack out the first 30 miles last weekend at 19 mph!.....but then beer happened!
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right......

    doh! This needed a bump 24 hours ago. I wish I would have been thoughtful enough to have penciled it into my empty calendar that I never look at...

    How long did the ride last, before people wimped out?
    I bet QED would have kept on riding.

    (I'll try to make it next year (unless I'm dead))

    RL really screws up fun, doesn't it??
