It really depends on how work goes could be as early as 3 or I could have to work all day
Cool, just text me. 201-655-1675. I have a meeting in cresskill at 12:30, but I’m free after that. If you wind up being able to do it earlier, maybe we could do a long loop at Stephens, ride under 80, something like that. Not sure how my legs will be feeling. Wildcat is a brut( but you know that)
 
so the right thing to do here is break-up the group.

Frank is looking at the cat 1 loop after racing (winning) cat 3 last year. the group there to pre-ride is going to be fast, cause cat 1 loop.
but they should accommodate everyone. This is good coordinator etiquette, esp if it was run by the race sponsor.
Unfortunate nobody was able to see the need to split-up.

hopefully, someone told them afterwards.
I think they did a great job. It started out all categories together for the warm up then cat3 split off as a group and cat1and2 were together up to the top then down the white trail. Then before cat1 and 2 split up they waited. The weather was nice so there were bikes and hikers all over the mountain. I rode ahead to keep my heart rate high enough. I waited for the cat2 group at Skylands(actually rode around up there for a while while waiting) as the group was waiting for everyone. At times the wait was longer than some of our OOS rides. It was my first time doing a pre ride and it went well except for loosing Frank. When the cat2 group met up with me on Skylands they asked about Frank. I texted him a couple of times. I keep my ringer on high volume so I can hear it in case someone is trying to reach me. I also check my phone every so often in case I miss a call. No easy answer. Like I said earlier I’m not a racer so don’t know the full process yet. I would say @Mtbdog , if that ever happens again and I’m there please call or text me so I know what happened to you and if you need help.

Smart move not tagging me. But slight oversight not to realize I've been watching everything lately. Though I admit this thread taxes my ability to ingest everything.
I didn’t doubt you may see it just hoping I am safe from the random naming if I don’t tag you and request. I must also say we have increased quality lately I mean beer league MTB racing is solid LOL. We’re even joining pre ride race events and everything, not me but as a group, I’m still waiting for the beer league

Yeah, you didn't ask for a change so that was just hot air on my part.

On a real note, it does make me happy to hear you say quality is increased. Though I guess that may be why they want to change the B to BEER. Anyway, I'll take it.

Beer is my other hobby we have a black IPA that should be ready soon as well as a green tea lemon grass and ginger pale ale that is conditioning. If they are ready and I know your coming I will try to bring one of them that is assuming you drink beer.

I appreciate the effort, but I haven't had a drink in 2+ years now.

Give it to @jmanic on my behalf!
