    Yup! Ride is on... I ran the Lakeside trail last night and it was in perfect condition. No standing water and tacky. Definitely bring lights... we usually finish around 8pm then head to La Hacienda for grub & beers. At least Tom is working now... lol... I'm still chasing that tiger, but getting closer to his tail... See ya'll Wednesday!

    I doubt I can make it Colin.

    I usally don't get free from work most days till after you guys have started & by then I'm pretty pooped out.

    I've got a lot on my plate right now I've got to deal with, but I'll get there soon I hope.

    See everyone out there!! (At least at the beginning!! lol). It's turning out to be a great group of riders. Lots of different styles/speeds. Lately it seems we all meet up, the groups split into fast, medium, slow, etc...and then we all meet back up and head out to La Hacienda for food!! Perfect group ride - everyone gets to ride how they want!!

    See you there!

    Kill ride tonight! Had a good group... saw someone people I haven't seen in a while... John (OldDogNewTrick) & Martin (Syndicate).. 3/4 of the RAMM crew... John, sorry you had the mechanical.... hopefully it'll be squared away soon and you'll be back in bidnez... Had a new rider out with us as well, unfortunately I didn't get to meet you... sweet Specialized FS tho'.... we cut thru the Beginner side to the Advanced Trail cutoff.... got to do the whole Advanced side (counter-clockwise this time) and the rest of the Lakeside... finished up just right after 8pm... good food and conversation @ La Hac... sorry we missed you Lance, but Disser did come out... fun stuff as always.... thanks for keeping me sane peeps... thanks to everyone who came out... again, I can't stress this enough... if you're not making this weekly ride... YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON SOME SERIOUS FUN!!!!

    guess what I found in my pack. The spring! Ha! John, looks like you have an extra one. I will have it with me and pass it along. Yes, it was a good time despite the breakdown.

    awesome! unfortunately i can't get a new derailleur hanger (it's Niner-specific) until next week so i'll be missing the trails for a little while. it was going to be $85 to ship a $14 hanger overnight. new derailleur ordered too since the cage was almost snapped in half. geez, i wish i at least had a good story or crash or scar to go with this mess.

    thanks guys and gals for helping me get the bike into a condition that i could at least walk it out. sorry it cut your ride short.

    p.s. I was just beginning to not hate Hammy so much...

    So, how slow is the "slow" group. I'm embarrassingly out of shape and my behind has gotten used to L4 lately...

    What's an average lap time for this ride? I don't want to be a drag.

    Unless somebody pulls some giddy-up out of their pooper, you ain't gonna slow anybody down. We rarely finish the loop. With that in mind, good idea to bring lights. It gets dark pretty quick.

    well, that being the case, I plan on being there. 5:30 lakeside? (ready to ride, or does everyone start showing up at 5:30?)

    I'm there! Ran the Lakeside trail today & it's tacky. There was one soft spot but other than that... killer. There might be a couple of soft spots on the Advanced side tho. I was outta town last week & definitely missed this ride... but whatcha gonna do when it's raining? See you cats 5:15ish.

    Has it rained already today? Just checking - since weather.com says:

    5pm: 15%
    6pm: 30%
    7pm: 10%
    8pm: 25%
    9pm: 10%
    10pm: 40%

    It's kind of all over the field. Is the ride still on so far for tonight?

    I'm downtown and haven't seen a single drop yet. I'm still planning on being there unless something changes with the weather.

    I'm just looking at the radar. It's been steadily moving this was, but now as I write this, it
    looks to be breaking up. I couldn't make it if I left right now. Should have listened to Lelan
    Instead of watching the radar. Ya'll have a great ride!

    I'm sort of nearby, so I'll be there unless it starts raining before 5.

    A big thanks to everyone that helped get my father (Tall Steve) out of the woods. He made it to the hospital fine, and will be sitting the next few Wednesday night rides out recovering. Sorry for not being back there with everyone, I had my hands full with no rear brake and just wanted to get done as soon as I could. I called it quits as it was getting darker and harder to ride with only a front brake.
