Hey Ted, I had a 10% beer for breakfast followed by a 9.7% beer for lunch and now I'm hoping for a little sustainability to get me next shuttle

A standard Veterans day tradition for me. But I never had Jesus tell me before. This is a special day

Had a question going thru my mind about this ride and gear choice for my bike. Is this a ride that would be better suited to the woods gearing or to the high speed dirt road gearing? Is there long periods of good roads with a pile of rough stuff or the other way around?

Long periods of roads with sections of "rough" stuff. Designed for adv bikes with gear, not small enduro bikes. Certainly a few sections would be more enjoyable on a small off road bike but the trade off of slogging that bike down km's of gravel and paved roads wouldn't be worth it in my opinion.

Add the drive there and back home....I'd stick with dirt road gearing as opposed to woods gearing.

Monday we're pre riding a section of RR13

Both of the last two years I've used a pressure suit, jersey and a wind/water proof shell. This year started off in the morning with the shell, and remove it as it warmed up. Previous year it poured so I had the water proof stuff on all the time.

And these suckers worked awesome for RR11!

I read gearing to be sprocket size

gear what gear, who needs gear

So should we have waterproof gearing or gearing for water this year? this gearing discussion is enduring

ok, if your boots fill with water, are your socks above your knees or do your socks fill with water as well?
