Sunday morning 8 am October 14th main parking lot at Deer Park. The pace will start slow and build to a creshendo with a second, 8.5 mile optional lap for those who wish to join me. Virtually no fire roads in this loop. Great place to SS. If you don't like to stop much you'll like this place. Would be nice to meet more people from mtbNJ in the process! ATTENTION: THIS JUST IN...Due to last minute whining by unnamed riders, the start time has been changed to 9 oclock am.

I think that was for the '08 race season, if I'm not mistaken.....
He's not going to want to ride with me anymore if I keep busting him about these cookies :rofl:

Honestly it was gonna be 7 am but I wanted to attract a few people. Ever since I got these new pedals and cleats a few rides ago I've had a bundle of mini "stuck to my pedals" crashes and my wrists are toast. I was doing GREAT at not crashing all year too till just a few weeks ago when we went with graveyardman and jake and such. Time to rest my wrists and do the Deer and/or other similarly non techinical tracks for a month or so.

Okay I'll bring cookies for all. I want to. As far as sandwiches for the races go, that's for the races that I show up at LOL. I thought I was on next year's team anyway. BTW Brian...I'll take you on an 8.5 mile loop that has a very teensy weensy tad of fire road and this place rolls fast too. Long climbs for sure, but do-able. There's also large logs, a couple of long skinny wooden bridges and a little bit of everything there and you won't be walking alot I assure you.

Maybe

I want to try there! Not sure if this weekend will work or not, but if not, I am dragging you out there again soon! I don't require cookies either. I just like to look at them. But if you could bring something green and organic, it'll be sure to gross everyone out and then more for me!

LMAO. I'll bring a kashi bar for you. I love 'em! Hey Mare try to come. I know you and neen were talking about this weekend not being good but if that changes c'mon out! I'll be doing Deer Park for a few weeks in a row I'd say. I need to fine tune my cleats and pedals without having to worry about any cliffs or boulder gardens. My aching wrists. Hey Mare if it's the early start time I could fudge it to 9 oclock if you want. I won't do it for you Ryan, so don't ask. LOL JK:p

I got the confirmation about this coming weekend and I won't be able to make Deer Park that's good water with you. What about the Saturday before the picnic?

Kashi...YUM!!!! And in return I am brining you duck tape.

Deer Park

Oops...the picnic is a Saturday. How about Deer Park (or Chimney Rock) the Sunday after the picnic?

Mare I'll leave that one to you but I'm game for either. Early morning rides work better for me cause I can get a long ride in and still stay married at the same time. I'd love to lead a ride at Deer Park and I'd also love to do Chimney Rock for sure. Pick one, post the ride, and I'll show up with some friends. We could just go alone too. Whatever pumps yer nads! p.s. You'll be glad to know I have just purchased two new bibs so the view should be a little nicer when I'm leading. Ryan's &*^#@*! seat.

Well, let's just wait and see what we feel like. It's still a few weeks away. Ok...not even 2 weeks, but you get the idea. We have a picnic to focus on!

Can you do that thing with your leg again? Maybe I should still bring the tape for that just in case.

We still haven't even decided if we are doing Deer Park or Chimney Rock. We were going to wait until we got closer to the date, but if folks want answers now, I vote for 8 or 9. 10 is getting too late. 8 preferred, especially if Chimney Rock.

Phatbiker, you have a preference on location? Have you ridden both?

i have ridden both.. i can put together a slightly longer loop at DP than Wazu suggests but it's not my call. the only reason that i prefer deer park is because i live closer. they are both fun.

Not that I'm following that closely but isn't the ride for this Sunday set at Deer Park, and the next ride subject to debate (DP versus CR)? I think Phat is referring to this Sunday which, if I read correctly, is at Deer Park.
