Something came up and I don’t think I can make the ride today.

:(

I’ll be there unless it gets rained out. I hope it doesn’t. I have been inside all day “lesson planning” (or reading the entire Internet and procrastinating, same thing), and I may spontaneously combust if I don’t get some exercise

I may actually be able to get to one of these this week, unless it gets all thunderstormy.

As i was the last person @ work to be asked if i wanted to cover the overnight shift for monday, i “won” the shift by default.

I peeled off for home at the top of 18th street – it started raining as I turned on to my street. Good timing!

We got nailed a soon as we turned off of dawson in Oakland. Should have ducked under the tent in schenley plaza. Got soaked. Puddles everywhere on the road. Thunder and lightening. Got home safely. Dripping wet now. Do I really need to shower?

i was in the trailing group, luckily we were able to make it down Jane st & onto Hot Metal before the skies opened up.

I live a block from Dawson & Boulevard, so instead of a 6 mile round trip to the cafe & back, i just peeled off the ride. Still had fun though.

And Yes stef, you should shower, spending the evening with soaked in road funk is never a good idea.

i’m rarely opposed to getting soaked (though tonight clearly i was closed to the idea), and i do always shower after riding in the rain. as has been stated, “soaked in road funk is never a good idea.” glad you guys still had some fun. hope to see you all next week!

It was kinda fun except for when I couldn’t see because I had nasty water in my eyes and contacts. Shower has been done.

I highly recommend an occasional evening soaked in P-Funk.

P-funk: classic music

road funk: classically annoying

I was with pbeaver and about 7 others. Like he said, it poured on us starting on the Hot Metal Bridge.

Soaked, but the rain was warm.

When I left Tazza, I saw a cyclist had been hit by a car in Highland Park. I wasn’t sure when I went by. At first I thought it was a pedestrian, but heard it on FOX53. Hope he/she is okay. Driver arrested.

What is the name of the route? I didn’t see an attachment in the email. Maybe I am blind

i’d love to go, but i dont think that 20 miles in the rain would be productive to beating this summer cold.

So only 5 of us showed. NO rain. Beautiful weather. Nice ride. Except for the douchey Access driver. I will be calling them tomorrow as a cyclist that was harassed and as a medical profession who is concerned for the safety of her patients who may possibly be transported by an unsafe driver.

Maaaaan… anybody wanna have some not-so-official Tuesday rides this fall? Or non-Tuesday rides, for that matter? We’re just now getting to light jacket weather, which is obviously the best riding weather (and everything else weather).

I think Dan is doing a lot of unofficial rides. :)

BTW Where did you go? I though you are going to repeat last week ride. I was 25 minutes late doing route in reverse hoping to catch you. Didn’t happen. So I went to Reservoir and did a loop there and went up and down Stanton, then Butler, Penn Ave, Jail Trail.

There a route planned for next week? I might have to make it out if it’s the ‘last ride.’ I haven’t touched a road bike since MS150 haha. I think i need to before Winter.

It will probably be the one I mentioned. Same as this week’s route. They tend to do shorter rides as we lose daylight. Though we did do some bonus miles. A few of us had lights.

I just wish these didnt start @ 6, but thats because i get home @ 6:30 and cant get to the start until almost 7.

But since the sun will be going down @ 4:30 and lights are then needed, why not delay the starting time?

Next week’s ride (yes, the last official ride of the season – 9/25/12) will probably be the same 15-mile route stefb described. People who want a little longer ride do a few loops around highland park.

More unofficial rides? By this time of year, I’m tired of making maps, sending emails, etc., so maybe some low-key invites on the board, no sign in, no real obligation to follow maps, eh?
