22 May: Eagleman Ride
POSTED: 5/18/10 10:04 AM

There's a group heading out to Cambridge this Saturday, May 22, to ride the Eagleman course.

About the ride:
Not supported or sponsored by the club, it's just a group of folks heading out to ride. Last time we had several pace groups.

Start location: Great Marsh Park, Cambridge (Google it or check the Columbia Triathlon Association's Eagleman 70.3 website for a map. It's a very small parking lot, the group should be easy to find.)
TIP: There is a portapotty on site. It's BYOTP.
Start time: Clip in at 8:00 am
Ride: 56 windy miles (If you'd like a cue sheet, check the Eagleman website for one. The course is well marked.)
Option: Refill water bottles at the cars and then ride the 13.1 mile run course (or more) for extra milage ~ there will be 2 pace groups shooting for around 75 miles.
Another option: Short run after
Lunch: SONIC

Note: Right now the weather says there's a chance of rain, and as of right now, we're still planning to ride. If the forecast gets too bad, we might change the idea. If so, we'll post here.

Who is in?

Karen ... how come as the official gear person you are organizing a sports bra purchase but can't extend the same courtesy for those who wish to get a manzier?

Anyway, I don't want to hijack this thread. I'm in for the ride and we can discuss it during the ride.

The South American block vetoes manzier discussions during the ride. 56 windy miles are painful enough.

I suppose it's time I look my demise in the face (or the road, or something) - I'm in.

I think total distance and optional run will be game day decisions for me, but I'll come armed with TP and thoughts of lunch!

Who's going to pull Clifford and I around the course?

I'm in. Coming from Cap Hill and can bring another person/bike. 70 sounds good to me, but I can do whatever the group wants.

I'm pretty sure I've never been to a Sonic - am interested to see what all the excitement is about :)

Sonic? You mean the hedgehog guy? Count me in and for the bike ride too.

Some of us are considering another stop after lunch to watch the 2010 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon 1-hour television show. It airs Saturday at 2pm. Most likely a pub in Easton.

Why is this an either/or situation?

Sonic shakes and tots make great driving food - they both fit in cup holders.

Trisha:
Last time we rode the E-man course plus 10 and bricked after, then we went to Sonic for recovery food. The next day, I set a PR at the Pacers Half. I'm not saying that it's a recommended training strategy, I'm just saying, next time I run a Half, I'll be eating tater tots and drinking cranberry limeade the day before.

Alejandro:
Why would anyone care about the Alcatraz Race?
(Just kidding. :)

I'm a tentative in. Considering that I couldn't run 2 miles this morning, I'm going to need a pretty substantial improvement before trying to bike 56/75 (or 15) on Saturday.

Forecast: Cloudy and 20 percent chance of rain. Sounds positively Caribbean-like for the E-Man course. Could take one rider, or be taken. savvyveteran at gmail

Unfortunately, plans preclude my usual big Saturday workout, so saving it for Sunday.

Will venture to Cambridge around 7am to arrive about 8:30 if anyone can't do Saturday, but you're up for Sunday.

Let me know.

Are there any type B personalities doing this ride? Apparently a standalone 56 miles on the bike is not enough for some of you people ... even the injured and out of shape ones.

I want to ride with the group that will go only 55.98 mile miles. We'll walk our bikes for the last 0.02.

If anyone decides to to jump in for a swim afterward, I'm going to key your bike. You have been warned.
