Just for Dizz, named in honor of the little Canadian kid we helped with his chain suck issue on Sunday (luckily, Dana speaks French!)

You asked for it (well, OK, one person asked for it, but what the hell)...

Tour de Gunks, Part Deux

I'm thinking the weekend of 6-7 October, 2007.

Any thoughts ??

EDIT: Big oops ! That's the dreaded Columbus Day/Canadian Thanksgiving cosmic convergence/New Paltz cluster f**k.

So, any preferences for 29-30 September or 13-14 October ?

I'd be in if you did it on the clisterf#$k weekend; that's my only free one in Sept/Oct. Bummed I missed the 19th...I bailed on my Tri and went kayaking instead (maybe I should be loggin in here more than every 4 months these days!). Had I known, with my better, smarter half out of the country and off the grid, Ida been all o'er that!!!

I'm up for road too.

Jules,

Welcome back to the shitty weather of the east coast.

It's gonna be mountain (well, Carriage Roads + 0.5 miles of single track). Joe K has a preference for 5-6 October, but that weekend is just hell in disguise in New Paltz.

Anyone else have a preference for last week of September or week after Columbus Day ? Speak up, or I'll have to make the decision in tyrannical fashion.

Tim

Tim,
I am away the last weekend in September so after Columbus Day works better for me. But do not let that impede your tyranny \:\)

I guess I'd prefer the October date, too.

So, Joules, are you officially back now?

Well, the there was enough input I did not need to be too much of a tyrant..

The weekend of 13-14 October is the winner. The fall colors should be much nicer than next weekend anyway.

So, the exact date is to follow, but I'm leaning toward Saturday, 13 October. Any dissent ?

Please advise if you want to attend so I know who to expect.

Tim

Word on the street is Lisa has been disqualified from Tour de Gunks for that weekend. Something about doping with synthetic estrogen apparently...

Oooh, that is so not true! There are perfectly normal - and legal - reasons for why I am craving chocolate and having violent mood swings.
I have every confidence WADA will not find anything suspicious in my test results.

Something that makes you want something salty, something chocolate, I wanna wear white?

I like the Saturday date, too

This is mysterious. I thought The Lisa was hinting at impending reproduction.

\:o is right, Ped! Enough rugrats in the world as it is.

What WOULD female racers dope with, really? It's not like elevated levels of testosterone could be explained away as natural.

The 13th is the Golf Tourney at 2:30pm. Perhaps a morning tour, or, a Sunday ride?

Is there anyone else who wants to do both ? I have no problem with Sunday to avoid any potential conflict if that works best.

Why don't you all do a ride to the golf tourney?

That would be sweet... clubs bouncing all over the place, balls rolling down the road...

The weather seems to suggest we do this Sunday, so Sunday it is.

Sunday 14 October
1000 at the steel bridge (that'll let the air warm up a bit for us)

Please RSVP so I get an idea of who is coming and if we need to wait for you if you're late.

Also, it would be nice if you could include a cell number in case you drink too much the night before and sleep late (not that anyone would do that )

Hope to see you there.

Tim

Who'd be silly enough to do that!
I am not going to be able to attend, alas - have hiking plans in VT that weekend.
Which reminds me, must research brewpubs......

Hope the weather stays nice for you guys and that you have a good Tour. With no doping controversy.

Anyone ?

I'm not going to make the drive up unless there is someone else committed to ride.

I will come up if there is at least 1 other person willing to tag along.

So, please let me know if you plan on riding. We'll tailor the ride to the participants.

Thanks.

Tim

Tim, looks like I'll have to drop out this time. You should come up tho. It's going to be the peak color weekend, I believe.

At this point I have no confirmations for the ride and no climbing partner for Monday, so I'm cancelling the Tour de Gunks.

In addition, the triathlon has several miles of trail near Spring Farm/Bonticue tied up for the day.

Maybe next year...

Hey Tim et al.,

So sorry that I disappeared for a while this fall. It took me some time to settle in at the new job and all.

I haven't been riding that much here - but I did get out for a short roadie ride yesterday. It was 35 degrees. I'm in shock! I had neoprene socks on, but got the screaming barfies anyway.

J.
