What's off season?
I'd be up for starting between 8-9AM. Likely head to the T and back.
I'd love to join tomorrow morning (Oct 8) -- is the ride happening as scheduled?
I am planning on riding tomorrow. I was planning on 7:30 again, but I know there are some folks that aren't too happy with that start time :)
I'll be riding. Would prefer the earlier start time because I need to be back by 11.
IN. 7:10a rollout from the Hill, 7:30 G-town. I'm likely only doing Great Falls but adding in some NEW hills to the route.
In. Be in Gtown at 7:30.
It seems like popular vote is to move the rides back an hour. So this Saturday, 8:10 roll out from the Hill and 8:30 roll through gTown. Any complaints? As it gets a little colder, we'll either move to 9:00 or do it on a week by week basis. Weather looks great if not a little breeze for Saturday.
I'll also toss out another option for this week: We all ride the TT at 8am at Hains Point and then roll out to Great Falls afterwards for a cool down spin. Any takers?
Anyhow, this weekend I'm up for a ride to the T and maybe Poolesville if my arm is twisted but I'm fully into the biking off season so a ride to Starbucks would also suit me fine.
I'm still into the 7:10 roll out as long as it's relatively warm and it's not dark out. But that will change soon I'm sure- then 8:10 is good.
As for this weekend-- I'm definitely interested in doing the TT first. Actually, I already signed up. So that sounds like a great plan to me and let's all you off-seasoners sleep an extra hour or two. Since that's the case (putting in 20miles at HP with the warm up lap) I'll probably only be going to Great Falls/Potomac- unless there is great desire among the group to do the T.
I think that puts us rolling through G-town around 9:10 depending on how many are doing the TT
The plan this week is to ride the time trial and then depart for a Great Falls trip. Who is joining Eric and I?
No guarantees on what time we will roll through G-town so if you want to be sure to catch us, plan on racing or volunteering at the TT.
To sign up for the time trial, simply email Hugh at email@example.com and give him your predicted speed and an emergency contact. It's free.
I like that plan. I signed up, am in.
I'm in for the TT, but probably just going to spin down at HP after since I have to head to B'more for a wedding.
Hopefully one of us will be able to knock the defending DC Tri TT champ off the throne!!
In for the TT and ride to Great Falls after.
In for both.
I'm in for a cruise to Great Falls, doubtful for the TT, but I'll probably come meet the group at HP.
I'm in for the ride, but not the TT this time around - first time joining the group, so I guess my best shot would be to try to hook up at HP. If you see a guy on a white / red c'dale Slice looking a bit lost... that'd be me!
Skipping the TT but I'd like to ride with you guys afterwards. I'll be down at HP to see if Hugh needs a hand though.
Who's riding tomorrow? Cool, but sunny and light winds.
I would prefer to roll from Georgetown around 8:30ish.
I need to be home no later than 9:45, so that either means I'm leaving earlier or missing out. Let me know if any of you have an interest in going earlier.
Planning to ride -- sleeping in and catching the 8:30 'bus' through G'town suits me
