it's 114 miles based on the tracks from last year. There's a couple bail points on NM 111 that keep it under 100 miles if you have to bail.

I should be OK. I'll bring a siphon hose and bribe Curtis with the promise of cold Coronas.

Time to man up
Talk about jinxing myself, not 2 hrs after I posted this my back went out, folding t-shirts on the bed no less (wife's out of town)

I was hoping it's be better by the weekend but it's not happening, still pretty sore and walking like an old man. There's no way I could p/u the bike right now and I doubt I could kickstart it. This Sucks!

Sorry I'm going to miss this ride, I was really looking forward to it.

Anyway Flame On! I deserve it after my prev post.

Dude,

That is a bummer. Sounds like me this last weekend.
Try to get a little bit better and we can go on a ride/limp/complain deal.

I think it is because you weren't doing a man enuf job. Folding clothes?

Maybe try this ride later this summer.

Geo

The weather was really nice today in the North.

We're down to 9 riders and not 1 mile has been ridden...WTF?
