Posting this just in case anyone's interested.

I'll start from the parking lot on Crim road around noon tomorrow for a 1 1/2 hour ride.

Maurice,

Would love to join you but my kids need someone to take care of them. Maybe one of these days we'll hook up for a ride again. You racing All-a-muchy on Sunday? SS again?

Kirt,

no worries, I knew I was posting late. I'll be riding a bit more casually for a bit so I'll probably be posting more rides. OTOH you won't want to ride with me on Thursday :D

Yes I'll be at the All-a-Muchy, should be fun. No SS this year, I'm changing things a bit. Did Bob volunteer you to marshall again ;) or are you racing?

Cheers,

Maurice

Sure.

The parking lot is on Crim Rd. (look it up on maps.google.com), across from the school. There's some soccer fields.

I'll be there at noon.

Wish I could join you and give you a preview of just how poorly I'll do this Sunday, but work pays the bills.

I looked up Crim road. Is that where the flat trail along the stream eventually goes? I took that out to the first road crossing once and left it at that. Is there anything more out there or do you use that as a warmup?

I'm lucky enough to work 5 minutes from CR so I ride in my lunch breaks.

Yes that's where the flat trail ends. It keeps going for a while after the school and sort of doubles at one point but it's all flat around the stream.

When I ride in from work I'll take it since it's on my way, otherwise I just park there because I don't like people staring out of their cars on Newmans Lane or the ball fields.

Thanks, I'll check it out sometime. I like warming up for a few minutes before I ride which generally never happens.

So...is your company hiring? :)

Maurice,

I'll be at the race, riding not really racing, just hoping to finish in a reasonable time. If you’re riding Friday let me know as I should be available.

Maurice, what gear did you run last year at All-A-Muchy? I haven't ridden there in years, not at all on the SS; my recollection of the climbs is pretty dim. Thanks!

Friday might not work out for me. Next week I should be able to go any day (every day??). :)

Chris,

32x17.

There really is a fair amount of climbing, right from the get go. Another tooth on the back might not hurt.

In order for me to keep up with Chris everyone should tell him to get a 30 x 20.

In terms of Allamuchy I rode the 33 x18 and I am sure you would have been fine with that. You might swap out your 34 for the 33.

They went and re-opened All-A-Muchy on me. Dammit. I'm thinking the 33 would be the choice, should I decide to go.

Thanks for the replies, gents.

Hey Chris, keep in mind the stats...31 miles 5,000 of climbing. 32x18 might not be a bad thing. Another insight, the 7 miles after the half way point are the most technical.

Weather is looking good and Kirt has commited to the Race, things are good!

See everyone on Sunday!!! (Maybe we will see that Nelson guy?!?!?!)

Better err on the safe side there, you'll thank us.

Bob is not kidding about what's after the aid station. It is quite misleading that it's located half-way in. Distance-wise, perhaps, but pain-wise, I don't think so ;)

Bob, is the dip at the end still there?

Clubber, what's your prediction for the fight?

Pain!

Maurice, Not to give too much away (sure), there will be lots of smiles witht he last 2miles or so of the race. Slightly diff finsih from last year, but fun all the same. So anyone thinking about not doing the whole thing, come on after the suffering there is the payoff!
