Love somebody, in the middle of the day. - Saturday, October 22

The BABE Filthy Fifty October Ho Down is less than two weeks from today.  I really do hope you come out for a day of riding and fun times with friends. 

Here's some general information that may help you make decisions about the ride:
  • Bring a sturdy reliable bike that can be ridden both on-road and off-road
  • I estimate 80% of the ride will be on the road.
  • The off-road sections will not be "extreme" and will be something a skilled rider could do on a cyclocross bike.
  • You may have to pee in the woods at some point.
  • You must be at least 21 years of age.
  • Weather may play a factor in the distance and duration of the ride.
  • I don't always make good decisions.
  • Dress for the weather.
  • We will start the ride from Hollywood Gardens parking lot in Rochester, PA around 10am-ish.
  • We will finish ride at Hollywood Gardens parking lot in Rochester, PA around 6pm-ish.
  • Helmets and blinky lights are recomended, but not required.  We're adults and can make our own decisions.
  • Bring plenty of water and some food and snacks.  Some tools and bike supplies would be a good idea.
  • I'd prefer not to hear any whining.
  • We will be making stops at places where food and beverages can be purchased.
  • For those who ride the entire event without whining will get a free beverage at Hollywood Gardens after the ride.
  • It's Halloween time, feel free to wear a costume or some item of flair.
  • Bring a change of clothes ferchristsake!
  • And don't take off your sunglasses.

Call or email me with questions.


Ride on.

Trail Maintenance - This Sunday - 10am - 20111016

Bring sturdy shoes, water, food and any BABE tools you may have. I think a few are floating around out there. Pick axes, shovels and rakes will be good. If anyone wants to bring some lopers, those are always handy out there.
Oh and bring your bike if you want to ride afterwards.
