    Come ride with us some time. We have a great 40-80mi (depends on where you turn around) ride that is about 65% on a national forest road with *very* little traffic.

    There's also a great route that starts in Oceanside, goes along the paved path, up through Camp Pendleton, up San Onofre state beach and back that is good for lack of vehicles.

    Thanks for the offer.

    I'm down. Keep me in the loop on your road rides. If I'm free, I'll be there (if I have enough notice, I can pretty much always re-arrange my schedule:beer:)

    Inside joke a few of us were tossing around a little while back, sorry.:beer:

    CC Sold out?

    I have heard that the CC is currently sold out! Wow, that is a record.:clap:

    There will be a waiting list, or, they may add spots due to huge demand.

    I am signed up for VQ for better or worse, with my spouse!:drunk:

    No addtional spots will be added due to the permit needed for the amount of riders aloud for event. 300 combined total is the number the WS has for permits. Anyone else interested in the CC will have to be put on a waiting list. People will drop out due to illness or injury, so don't give up hope. Email the WS at [email protected] to be put on a waiting list.

    I haven't signed up yet, but I'll be representing the IE in the VQ. Most likely I'll be on my SS, but things could change between now and then.

    I wouldn't wait too long. The CC is already sold out and the VQ always does. To get on the CC waiting list or even VQ once it sells out, call Sherry at Switchback or email her. Here is the link to the shop. http://www.switchbackcyclery.com/

    Just signed up for VQ.

    The Warriors Society page says that they are no longer accepting mail in entries unless they were postmarked by 10/5 and they expect it to fill up soon.

    So, get registered now if you plan on doing it.

    Now, about those training rides. I need to do some, since I have not ridden any of the trails included.
