    You know, I thought that might be demoralizing for me, but it really wasn't. I expected to see a lot of people pass us on the return leg before we reached the control anyhow, and it was kind of fun to give them a cheery wave as they passed by going the other direction.

    Gah, May 12th is the week after the WCC and the 26th is the week before the Little Red Riding Hood. We'll probably only consider the April date.

    I'm sure Bubba will love this surprise once again.

    Hey, AG. We're going to be in your neck o' the woods. What's your story?

    Gah, I know. I'm wondering if I'm over-committing myself in April and May. Something may have to give, perhaps Bike Around the Buttes on April 14th...

    LOL - forgot about LRRH - hmm I guess 26 wouldn't work for me either. Let me know if you decide on a different day.

    Ack, I forgot about the Riv weekend!! We're still on the waitlist for that.

    It's too bad since it seems May 19th would have been a good date, it being a couple of weeks apart from our other committments.

    V, wouldja mind terribly if we did the perm on the weekend of the 19th ??

    (Altho I'll have to check with LeeBob, he might rather do the Riv weekend if the opportunity comes up. He's been such a good sport that I don't want to cheat him out of any rides he really wants to do.)

    Thumbs up

    OK, now, back to the TOPIC AT HAND (ahem!)...

    Good job, y'all. I knew it would be a phenomenal success. You've all been working very hard.

    But you're scaring me mightily. I may just be SAG for WCC. I haven't been on a bicycle outside since, oh, about November. I have a boatload of excuses (it's been too cold, the roads are still too icky, there's still good skiing to be had, I really like this running thing, I'm waiting for my new bike so I don't make my back flare up again with my old bike, blah blah woof woof...).

    Ok folks, my schedule set (brevet wise) for the nest month.
    3/24 Cayucos 300k (with the 21% grades I can always buy new knees)
    Then, if everything goes well
    Cayucos 400k on 4/7. It goes to the Pinnacles NM, same place as the Santa Cruz 300K does on that day.....
    SadeKate - No I didn't get signed up for the SLO Wildflower When are you doing the Moss Beach Permanent? I'm working on route down here, But Hemet and Riverside in July and August could be fun, not

    Fredwina, see Jobob's thread about the Moss Beach permanents. She's scheduling several. And Trekhawk might have a SLO Wildflower reg for sale, plus they have a cool feature on their webiste for folks wanting to sell/buy a reg.

    Yellow, stop the whining - remember you have the altitude advantage on us. We'll be chasing you up the hills even if it is your first ride of the season.

    Actually, I've emailed Bill Bryant, the RBA for Santa Cruz, about setting up some dates for the Moss Beach Ramble 200K permanent.

    I'm probably going to ride that permanent route on Saturday April 21st (or Sunday the 22nd), sometime in May, and Sunday June 16. Anyone else care to join me on any of those dates? I haven't finalized the dates with Bill yet.
    Hopefully, I'll have a brevet in for april, and I have to work both those fridays(i'm off every other), I can do 5/19, if you can stand riding with An Aluminum frame from Pennsylvania...(not sure IF I want to do the 600K. yet . I'm leaning toward doing the Southern Utah one in June.

    Ummmmm...I fail to see what ALTITUDE has to do with DISTANCE and BUTT CONDITIONING.

    What.

    I just found this thread! I'm only, hmm, over a week late.

    Congrats you guys. You all rock. (And some of you are animals.)

    How do you all find the time to train? Looking at my stats for the past few years, I average only a little over 6 hours per week on the bike (or trainer), rarely more than 10 hours, and never more than 15. Ed & Fred over at RoadBikeRider are putting in 20 hours a week now, for their base training! Do I need a new job? No job?!!! Better time managment skills? How do you do it?
