I will be riding tomorrow. Hope you can come!
Can't make it this Tuesday, but definitely interested for future Tuesdays!
Forecasts for tomorrow is "Windy... isolated thunderstorms in the morning, becoming mostly sunny late."
I'll be doing the sunset ride tomorrow, rain or shine, preferably more shine than rain!
Oops..scratch that. I just realized that it'll probably be flooded down there. I'll ride elsewhere!
I was down there this AM, it was fine.
You may want to give the Arlington Hills Ride a try some Tuesday night. A pretty difficult course and it's a no-drop ride. If you've never done it before, it's a pretty dope experience. Can be dangerous at times but helps newbies and old-timers alike acquire/maintain bike handling skills that are hard to obtain otherwise. Typically packs form and it's a constant hard effort. Check it out.
Anyone going out to Hains Point to ride tonight?
I can't make it tonight as I'm recovering from an injury.
I've recovered from my injury. Hippee hi ho! Sunset Ride for tomorrow (July 9) is back in full swing! See my first post for meeting location and contact info.
Are you going next week? How far do you usually go? Would love to join!
Yes, I'm out there almost every Tuesday. I will post the day before to confirm. As far as distance, I just go with the flow. If no one shows up, I do 8 loops (roughly 25.6 miles). If folks come, we usually do about 5-6 loops.
All right. You know what they say, if you want to race in the heat, train in the heat. That said, sunset ride will be happening. Hope to see folks out!
Hey, I gotta bail. I forgot I signed up for the injury prevention clinic that's starting around the same time as the ride.
Hey, are you going out today? Tennis court parking lot? I'll be wearing pink and my bike is a black Lapierre. Hopefully see you there!
I'll have to miss you today! I have a work event to attend tonight.
Ride is on today! Hope to see some folks out there at 6:30 pm!
Hey, sorry, I gotta bail last minute. I found out about a film screening tonight about children and food politics followed by a Q&A with local anti-hunger, child food activists and I just gotta attend. See you next week for the ride! I promise I will actually come to the rides that I organize. =)
In case you're interested about the screening too: http://www.bloombars.com/garden-of-the-arts/film-digital-arts/tu-730-bloomscreen-and-dc-fair-food-present-whats-on-your-plate-film-free-delicious-organic-food
Hey, ride is on for tomorrow, rain or shine. I'll be driving there so if you have stuff you want to stash away during the ride, you can stash it in my car.
