    Either Saturday or Sunday...saturday would be late morning/early afternoon, sunday would be early to mid/morning.

    I'll do Patapsco if anyone is going to be there, if not, I'd like to ride Loch Raven for a couple of hours...I'd love to hit the Shed but my time is limited so I'm staying close to home.

    If anyone is interested, let me know....I'm going with or without you :p

    Sheeeeeeeeeeed. :thumb:

    I rode Loch Raven Thursday and it was in fine shape. Nice and dry on the north side of the dam where I was riding. Should be a good time. Matt, gimme a ring Saturday when you head up there and let ya know if I'm game.

    Feels weird not riding with a full facer and body armor though. Gonna feel kinda naked Sunday at the Shed.

    LOL, nothing between your chin and the rocks but the wind :D

    Since the Patapsco ride is gonna happen tomorrow (Sunday), I'm gonna head down there and ride down there....LRR is nice and close to my house, but I haven't been in Patapsco yet this season.

    You guys have fun at the shed....if you break anything, let it be something on the bike :)

    No, but last time I went on MTBR I clicked on a link and it took me to this "porn" site and said that a virus was attacking my computer. So I havent gone back in a while.

    RPK.....my legs are DEAD today....

    That was a tough ride. You need to stop talking about food when we ride, because I ate what seemed like everything I could find in my house when I got home....then ate again 3 hours later.

    The ride was grueling (for me being on platforms and out of shape), but lots of fun too. I'm not sure when, but I will definitely meet up for the sunday ride again this fall (and I will be on time).

    Thanks!

    Thanks man. That is all my plan to talk about food. Haha. But I didnt think you did that bad. I mean you were riding pretty fast. I was just taking my time though. I wasnt trying to get hurt. But I didnt do as bad as I thought I was going to also.

    Hope to see you out on the ride again. Cya.

    Ryan , No problem man.

    Yeah that was average speed for me on flats and DHs, I wasn't pushing very hard (perhaps w/ the exception of that first trail in from the road, I know that trail very well, the others I hadn't been on more than once, if ever).

    It was the uphills that were killing me....just keeping up was tough for me. I would have helped if I had my seat up higher, but i kept getting caught up in the DHs and forgetting to put it up :)

    I see the ride for 9/25 is off, that's cool, my friend's 30th birthday party is saturday night so I doubt I'll be on a bike the next day.
