Flatlands Tour 2012

Flatlands Tour 2012

Last year, with the help of a sweet rotating paceline, I got a personal best. A few of us managed a 20 mph average. Let's do it again!

This train leaves promptly at 7:30am. Be on it.

The weather should be gorgeous! 60F early and maybe 80F by the time we finish!

Nothing better than being in a good group that's working well together and going fast.
One of the real pleasures of cycling.

Hey, why did Flatlands not appear on the "next two days' rides" email this morning??

Probably because it is entered as an "event" not a "ride".  I think this used to be entered as a ride at every level to more or less blanket the "next two days" ride report.

Thanks for the explanation, Ed.
In addition to the "Ride Events" category, I just added the "All-pace Long" category to the listing, so it should show up in tomorrow morning's "next two days' rides" e-mail.  We'll see.

Chris Tsien has kindly reformatted the 101-mile cue sheet to one page of large, friendly letters. I will bring some of these to the start.

Thanks to everyone who helped make it a Big Day on the Big Ring!

Re: Flatlands Tour 2012

.... And thanks to those few who heard me hollering and didn't leave me behind at the lunch stop. The same five or six of us took all the pulls, but it's still way better than riding alone in that wind. Just barely missed 20mph by the slimmest of margins, though Russ -- one of the strongest pullers -- has kindly tried to convince me otherwise. Chris's reformatted cue sheet was flawless.

Let's do it again next year!
