Our biggest concern right now is that TS Andrea moves through quickly and we don't face any flooding along the route. We have 129 registered riders and I should have 15-20 rotating with me in the lead group. We're shooting for a 10 hour finishing time.

Good Luck Ridge.

I'll be happy with 50 miles before breakfast tomorrow. It's 114f here today so "early" works well.

I maintained the fastest pace I could for 6 miles into moderate headwinds today, and it pounded me. 25 minutes, meh. I'm really out of shape.

First 'tale from the bike shop'

So I get a call from the store manager where I'm fixin to head out to (in 2min) telling me that 'Tom's concerned that he can't get in touch with your references and we need to do more paperwork and have you build a bike.'



The mechanic that's been in your store for 20 years now and who has been keeping you more or less afloat says I'm a good mechanic and you want me to build a bike to show you that I know what I'm doing?!



If it wasn't laughable, I would be somewhat offended.

Oh well.

You want I should build a bike? I'll build a bike.
