Metric century +, July 13 or 16

Post by Jonesy on Sun Jul 08, 2012 2:41 pm

Looking to do a long ride of 100-120 km.

I'm leaning toward riding to Heidelberg, chowing down on a huge schnitzel & pommes, then taking the train back.

Another option would be doing a loop around the pfalzerwald, and maybe hitting the Asian buffet in K/town

If anyone has other ideas I'm open to anything that involves 100-120km, decent scenery, and copious amounts of post ride gorging and beer.

Anyone interested? For army folks these are training holidays...

I am not ready for a century yet, but I definitely will want to try it soon.

Hey fellow roadies,

I'm here TDY thru Aug 11th and have my bike. I'm looking to do some group rides or just meet up with another roadie or two for a spin. Unfortunately I'll be working on Mon. Is there anything else going on?

postponed due to questionable weather forecast... will plan again in the coming weeks sometime...
I will still be getting out early MON for some kind of road ride here locally.

probably starting at about 6:30 from steinwenden, and doing so e loops fairly close to home so I can bail in case of persistent rain, and going for a few hours or as long as the weather is tolerable.

I'll post a start ti e and location tomorrow afternoon, if you are still interested, Jason (or anyone else).

of course the weather clears just as soon as I cancel this ride and make other plans!

Well I do plan on getting in a high mileahe ride in the morning anyway...

I will start at about 5:30 a.m., ride as far as i can for two hours and then turn around.... route will be through ramstein, landstuhl, through ktown, thento hochspeyer, toward neustadt as far as i can get in two hours....

If anyone is interested, let me know.

Jonesy, I think we met in Latvia.

Can't make it on Monday, but definitely interested in some small-group road rides (not real high-milage at first though). Only have an older hybrid over here right now (have an entry-level road bike in the states). Took a friend to Frank's the other day to get her first bike in years, and he's got some SWEET deals right now on some NICE road bikes. Planning on buying one in the next couple weeks.
