    Good times again, thanks much! I can't make the 2nd and put some alternate dates in, but if the 2nd works for the most people, then go for it.

    3/19 One more for the books- beautiful day!

    Day late and about 20hrs of saddle time short for a second pair of the mythical socks.

    Many thanks are due and payable: @rlb @fidodie @thegock @jimvreeland @Mountain Bike Mike @liong71er @Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir, et al @ Jimmy Page thanks for the support. The challenge definitely helped me to get out there when it was bleak.

    And of course to all of you that participated, I enjoyed your ride writeups (every single one;) it made me want to get out more.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone out on the trails or elsewhere.

    I'm glad I decided to participate this year. It may have impacted race training or not, who knows. Regardless, many great experiences had, personal achievements gained, overall improvement accomplished. I can honetly say I rode as much as life allowed in shit weather and lots of hours logged in the dark.

    I was happy to see @w_b and @thegock step up. Sucks I got sick at the end, I was hoping for a shootout for second place with @w_b . I never had any intention on winning because we all know @liong aint nobody to fucks wit. I was hoping to be the first place behind Jim and Liong.

    Still sucks @stb222 wussed out. He belonged in the Elite comp regardless of his BS excuses.

    Thanks to all who participated and ran this thing. The stories were great entertainment and motivation. Extra spesh thx to @rlb and @fidodie for all the admin work to keep us on track.

    Sucks I won't be able to attend the group ride, will be at Mercer coaching the NICA race that day... maybe an opportunity for the BIYF crew to do the group ride at Mercer and support NICA...

    Cheers!

    Yeah thanks @rlb and @fidodie for running this - a good time as always. Not sure if I can make apr 2 but I doubt anything around here will be rideable. Prolly allaire (or Mercer) is your best bet.

    Yeah, totally wussed out, would have knocked you out of 3rd if I did on my 2017 hours alone.

    It was nice not being caught up in the show this year. That being said, congrats to the winners!

    I would push the ride back just because of weather. Snow melt will probably make for shit trails for a while.

    I second this, super cool that both guys decided to make the leap. It was fun to watch them go back and forth for a bit!

    I logged the last few stragglers, so it looks like the standings are final.

    As for the ride, it seems like most are available for 4/2. Let's see how the weather shakes out over the next few weeks and call it as the time gets nearer.
