Sure -- drop me a PM when you've got the bike, and we'll plan something. I'm pretty rusty myself at the moment, both in terms of fitness and skill. Walked a lot of trail yesterday that I should've been able to ride.

It's not far from NYC. About an hour drive from my place in New Rochelle.

I'm thinking after my current lease is up I'm going to be giving Jersey another look. Seems to be a lot more good riding there, both on and off pavement.

I haven't really ever had a team to help lead me out. Don't know that I'd know what to do! (that's a lie, btw. I figgered out I'm much better going from fast to way faster than I am slow to fast.)

Mr Head: put that up on the Serotta forum or Classicrendezvous.com (whatever the name of that Campag-only site is!) and you may actually get real money for em. I'd take em, but I haven't ever run Campag stuff, so they'd end up doing in my bin o stuff what they've been doing in yours.

Oddly enough, I know the owner of classicrendezvous. He is also the LBS owner and one of my team's sponsors. Very, very knowledgeable and cool guy.

No idea how I've managed to keep that bit of magic going.
Shoosh! I have it DVR'ed as well and plan to watch it tonight. I have been running around since yesterday at our races with fingers in my ears so as not to be spoiled. Even my wife was trying to drop hints all the way home from SC yesterday...

Cool L, I'm picking her up tomorrow in Piermont NY, maybe a wknd soon I can christen her.....

Where in NJ?, there is indeed some good riding in north NJ and it's actually pretty bike friendly.
I can vouch for Edgewater being a great place to be, and Hoboken/ Jersey City are also good if you're wanting a more city style life.

Yours truly on Sunday's MTB ride trying really, really hard not to dick up on the photo pass.



All in all, a good ride. Lots of experienced riders to crib techniques from. Unlike the motorcycle, I'm finding that I usually enjoy cycling with others. By just following whoever is in front of me, I end up riding sections that I would probably walk by myself and pushing faster for longer to keep up with the group.

Cool!

I'm fighting a cold that thinks it's sneaking up on me. So, my riding is on hold for a bit.
That and morons scheduling meetings at 4 in the afternoon.

Very nice... that section looks pretty gnarly. Baby head rocks with sharp teeth suck.

Again?! What are you? Senile?



Was 80deg out yesterday. Beautiful, sunny, bit windy tho. Got all the repairs for the week accomplished. Now its still warm, but t-storms are moving about like punch-drunk boxers. Since I'm allergic to lightning, I think I'll bring stuff to the shop and try and get a ride in later.

[fashion police]dude. Them socks gotta go! This ain't the 70s no more![/fashion police]

AFA riding with people: that's how I learned most of the stuff I've done. Ride with people better'n you and do what they do. Well, at least TRY to do what they do! Sometimes it works, sometimes you end up in a yard sale.
