I won't know the exact route until we leave Tuesday, as it changes every year. My buddy has a house in Grafton, and we either start rides from there, or end rides there. A couple of years ago, we started in Richford on the Canadian border, and rode down to Grafton. Last year, we left Grafton, went down through Mass, and back up through Keene. I am stoked for some good climbs!!! And laughs!

Lucky it was me and not one of the n00bs on the ride. ESPECIALLY the guy that got hit's daughters! I'm not going to overreact and end up in a ditch. ...which was a distinct liklihood with as close as he was to me

Epic rides kbasa and ericm! Chapeau x2.

Gummee, glad you escaped relatively unscathed. Good onya for calling the truck pilot on his douchebaggery.

Me, I continued to build my legend as The Most Inept Mountain Biker In The World. Only fell once, a low-speed brainfart. Still working on the flinching when there's a drop-off to one side of the trail. Maybe if BLM filled the canyon with those foam blocks from the gymnastics place...

Well, for those less able.....

Got my bike out this week for the first time since September. Did a couple of super easy rides to start (hey, they're all easy in Southern NJ) and did 550' of vertical for 25 miles averaging 18.5 mph solo today.

I'll try to get that up to 50 miles over the next couple of weeks.

Mouth-breathing idiots aren't gonna make me stop riding.

I hopped on Bike Reg just as the Applecross registration opened. Then goofed up trying to see if I couldn't add my buddy (who doesn't have a USCF license) and am probably not on the front row.

Now I gotta go work on my starts! ...and uphill run-ups

...and cornering

...and...

After a week off (doing nothing physical except fishing and drinking) at the beach, I got out today for the first group ride in over a year. Wow, I forgot how much fun those can be. The A group didn't show, which means yours truly got out in front with two others and enjoyed the scenery and the draft. We were in the 27 mile group, but passed the 40 mile group at mile 5 as they blew up on the first little climb. Lots of standing, grunting, and wiggling going on while I sat and spun serenely up the hill. Going down the other side we dropped everybody without even trying. And then there were three. We took turns pulling at the front until about mile 25 when I looked back and they were almost out of sight. Then a couple of minutes later I hear earbud music and a fast guy passes me who wasn't even on the radar. He was hauling the mail and I kept him in sight for the next mile of rollers until the base of the real climb. Knocked out 37 miles in 2hours flat. Rode to the meeting spot (my son's school)and back for a good warmup and some additional climbing. Felt great... especially after the soul sucking experience of driving a cage 587 miles in one day.

Those numbers indicate a distinct lack of rustiness in your cycling fitness. You'll be into the 20's soon, causing some serious Stravasshole head explosions. Good on ya B.
