I’ve been looking forward to the Tuesday ride all week, im hoping for a big group. Anyone who wants to buddy up with me ill be in the Livestrong spandex and livestrong helmet and livestrong sunglasses. Ill look like im the fastest Guy in the back of the group. I guess we’ll call this ride La Tour De Fox Chapel.

I’m still planning on it, so I’ll look for you Mr Marvelous. I’m short, female, and have a silver bike with a step-thru frame.

@ Pseudacris sweet. So ill be looking for a fish swimming up stream? And you’ll be looking for a anime Japanese Kung Fu master riding a bike

I love a good fish ladder, just say’n. Speaking of which, Copper River Salmon are in season *YUM*

I’m still up in the air as to whether I’ll make it, since I live 70miles East of the burgh, but my brother lives in Highland Park, so it might happen *crosses fingers*

Is your kit all Livestrong yellow? I’ll probably wear a blue bike PGH shirt.

It sounds like more people should do the Thursday Team Caffeine ride again. The “22 mile hilly route through Fox Chapel” was a staple of that ride back in the day. I think it just needs a regular ride leader to step up…

Wasn’t there also a “Team Half-Caf” ride that split the difference between the two groups? I know that was more informal, though.

Yes, for a while (one summer?) there was an informal group that would do a somewhat easier ride Thusrday nights.

@johnwheffner: check the ride calendar – I think I recently saw someone is revising Thursday rides leaving from Harmar.

Or I’m losing my mind.

Or both.

The Team Caffeine rides do still leave from Tazzo d’Oro on Thursdays. There is actually a Yahoo group for that ride. That WPW Thursday ride is a different animal.

I’m glad the Tuesday ride is getting a lot of buzz, I hope we start getting groups of 60 or more people.

The Tuesday ride with a group of slower riders was a success, even if Pseudacris was the only member of Team Dropped the showed up. It’s a great ride and the slower group is a lot of fun hopefully more will come next week.

I hope to! As I said before, I’m not in the city at the moment, so it’s hard to commit to these rides; otherwise I would have been there.

I’m in a wedding this week, up in Dubois, so I have to use my gas money sparingly *sigh*

I’m still going to try again next week! :)

That was a good hilly challenge with great views! Perhaps the slowest Team Decaf ride TeamDecafWeekend and ALMKLM have ever been on, but the company and route were great. I hope to see you next week!

Hey its that time again, who is joining me for another Tuesday Decaf ride. Last week was great, I’m hoping to get more people to join Team Slow! The Tuesday routs are a perfect way to see the beautiful side of the city and challenge yourself, and the company and conversations in the slower group are great.

Note: I’ve been trying to re-post the message from the Team Caffeine mailing list here, but something is triggering the spam filter (or, there are five of the same posts that I can’t see).

New map tonight – “Zoom the Tombs” 21 miles through 3 city cemeteries.

Leaving Tazza 6:15 sharp.

Apparently the spam check doesn’t like the direct link to the map.

Get around the spam filter by posting a harmless message, then using the Edit button to put in the links.

That does sound awesome… I don’t think I’ll make it though (I really need to move closer to the city *sigh*).

I’m 80% sure I’ll be there. And, I know this route fairly well, so I won’t feel too bad if I get left behind the other Tomb Zoomers.

@ Pseudacris 80% is good enough for me. I’m glad you know the route thats a big help.

Yeah it was so good, but I probably should have taken half of it home and then gone for a ride at some point. I need to make one of these rides also. I doesn’t sound like they are ending any time soon, so I still have time.

+1 on Zoom the Tomb ride being fun. The Tuesday team decaf rides are my weekly high.

Like boostuv, I WILL make one of these. I keep working til 6 on Tuesdays which makes it nearly impossible to get there in time.

Just an fyi for anyone interested… I’ll be leading the same route as last week – “Zoom the Tombs.”

In previous years, we followed a pattern of riding the same route 3 weeks in a row. We’ve fallen off that pattern this year, but I’m moving back toward that style for several reasons. Riders become familiar with the route making it easier to find their own way, riders know in advance where they can bail if they want/need, and riders have greater retention of how to get around the city when the route is repeated.

Join us!
