    Thanks for the confirmation. Luckily I only did one lap and it was kind of worth having a partial break from the northwest wind.

    That's beyond just being bad form; it's sacrilege. No one should ride HP laps backwards to escape the wind during the windter season.

    NO ONE.

    Well, I did feel guilty doing it so I did an extra 5 laps after in the right direction with a very strong headwind for penance.

    Hey all, this is just three days away.
    So far the only person who has stepped up to provide support is komorebi.
    In past years people have baked cookies or brownies or brought other snacks to share with the other riders.
    As mentioned in an earlier post, if you know someone who is not riding (friend, spouse, etc.) who is willing to be head cheerleader and hang out at the social stop, bribe them to come.
    Anything you can do to add to the festivities is welcome--either as a team or as an individual.

    I'll see you all down there!

    Oh, and jousting.

    I've infiltrated a few events as a filthy newbie who was late to all this BAFS s̶i̶l̶l̶i̶n̶e̶s̶s̶ majestic pageantry. I'm down to drive and support. Plus Judd is a champion of the people and I owe him pie. Hit me up with snack and drink requests and I'll see what I can do.

    I will be there with a car and some goodies and support ...recovering from the VASA ride and maybe doing one lap! Oh and jousting. I'll bring a first aid kit, a flag to wave and some chain mail. Probably won't stay too late.

    Default Eve of Spring Hains Point Party

    I will be there, driving my car down with bike, so I can offer support when I am not riding.

    I am a ride leader for the Half Metric Vasa Ride, if anyone wants to be in my group; ride out at 9:30ish.

    I will be bringing some...DOUGHNUTS!! What else???

    I may have some other snacky stuff, a possibility of prohibited beverages and a corkscrew.
