I signed up real early (I think). If I get #1 I'll donate $100 because I don't like being #2.
Ya, when I went the Switchback to hand in CC's and Shannon's apps, I even asked Chris about the price difference and he seemed fine with it. Save the $5.00 and buy raffle tickets in the upcoming WS events like the Toad and Traverse. Those events will be for Charity with all proceeds going to TACA(Talk About Curing Autism) from the Toad and I believe The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund for the Traverse not sure though, but I'll find out.
Here's some info: "The Freedom Alliance Scholarship Fund honors the bravery and dedication exhibited by Americans in our Armed Forces who have sacrificed life or limb defending our country by providing educational scholarships to their children"
Both TACA and Freedom Alliance Scholarship Funds are good charities but don't get the recognition and funds they deserve. This past Toad Festival, The proceeds went to the Juvenile Bipolar Research Foundation. Those events won't be till spring, hope you all join me in those as well.
Bummer about the food. Last year I thought the food was pretty kick azz.
Anyway I figure I'll be rolling in kinda late again. So if someone could save me a chicken wing or 2 that would be great. lol
The pasta was bitchin last year!! I was totally looking forward to Italian after.
Gene - just ask them to bring more boxes of costco cookies... those were gone by the time Justin and Ann came back from getting the vehicle... No worries, I got one
Just my OCD flaring up here, but I just wanted to make sure I'm good to go. I signed up online and received a confirmation email, but I see this about the apps and saw another post about turning in a waiver. I just want to make sure I'm fully registered.
Well, the CC sickness has fully set in. Ben was telling me I should do some road miles with him to train for CC. I mentioned I don't own a road bike. He said I should pick up a frame as he has a full Campy group that was given to him and I could have it.:bang:
So, I went to Performance today and walked out with this for $200. I know it's nothing special but it'll get the job done.
I can't believe I own a road bike.#-o
I know I know, let the ribbing commence.
What's the hardest part about riding a road bike...yeah yeah yeah.
You may find road riding to be a lot cooler than you think .
Actually, my biggest fear is cars. I've been hit twice so I'm not all that eager to jump back out there with them.
This doesn't do much for my worry: http://www.socaltrailriders.org/for...-dammit-cyclist-killed-18-wheeler-irvine.html
Doug, if you signed up on active and followed the steps, then you should be good to go. The registration process on active.com would not have let you continue if you did not "check the box" that excepted the waiver. You're in alright.
That'll be my attire, sans the white under jersey.
Doug, start thinking about rides you'd like to do. All we need is a bike lane and your GPS.
You know the what the hardest thing about being a roadie is right? :lol:
Here would be a good first ride Sunday...
Tour de Poway
104 Mile (Century)-start 7:00 am. Over 4,500 feet of climbing, great downhills through beautiful back country avocado groves, with a scenic ride down the coast and then back to Poway on the 8 mile SR56 bike path. Five well stocked aid stations. East bound lane of the Poway Grade will be closed to vehicle traffic from 7:00am-9:00am. Wrist bands will be required for cyclists to ride the grade.
Totally agree about the fee for Active.com.....I mailed my CC entry today!
Saved almost two pints of beer by not paying the extra fee! :beer:
I did the Tour de Poway last year, starts out with a nice little climb
Good ride though, and well supported.
The only thing I can't get into with those rides are the dayum route slips! If you can't find someone as slow as you (and I rarely do), then you should get a "route slip clip" or something...we almost followed a guy home last year
I would actually consider this if it wasn't such short notice.
Yeah yeah yeah, I know.
I don't know?!?!?
