    I had never signed up before this year. I'll be booted off in mid-January because of a week-long ski trip to Vermont, so that will give someone else an opportunity. I'd be riding either way so no...

    Glad you weren't hurt too badly, and I hope you're still feeling okay today. The next day really is the test to pass.

    One number didn't work, so I retyped the entire number and it did. Phew. I was beginning to think it might be too much work. I mostly just want to ride my bike.

    Thanks!

    Can't do, but will be at FCC at the Baked Joint. Mostly just posting to ask if they (partially) fixed their sign. This is what it looked like in July:

    The time lost I refer to is due to zig-zagging through the neighborhoods, which aren't a direct route. It's more than max speed, it's stop and go, and adding a few miles. For me, on a regular bike,...
