    This year they're doing a rolling start to help with the registration issues of last year. I've been assigned the 7:45am slot if you want to ride with someone familiar. Otherwise I'll be the marshal in my Michigan State Spartans jersey with "Kitty" written on my helmet. Come say Hi!
    I'll be there representing the Land of Lincoln in this bad boy:



    I'll plan on riding with Team Kitty this year.

    I'm going to do my best to make sure I'm in the first wave rolling out. I'll probably also try to maintain a relatively quick pace (quick is relative during 50 States, obvs) just to stay ahead of the crowds. The ride itself is a pretty fun challenge, and satisfying in that regard, but I find most DC group rides to be pretty frustrating...mostly because I'm a fairly, uh...assertive...rider in the city and I don't have much patience for riding in packs with lots of inexperienced riders. Not that I'm judging, I just prefer to keep my distance.

    I'll be there. I'm not as fast as some - but I'm gonna try to do the 50 States. We shall see! It'll be my longest ride so far. Weather should be perfect!!

    That sounds good. How do you know your time slot? I have not received any notification.

    That's a really weird sweat stain on the front of that jersey.

    My first thought was "Who spilled coffee down the front of that nice orange jersey?"

    You just wish you could represent the Great Mitten State. Sadly, I don't think you'd fit in either of my awesome 2 Michigan jerseys. So sorry Judd, you'll have to settle and wear your jersey from a significantly less awesome state.

    I do all of my Michigan shaped sweating and coffee spilling in the arm pit areas.

    A first timer!? How exciting! It is a blast. It is hard, no doubt, but it is really any truly for all folks on all bikes, at all paces. Everyone has their own style: mine is to leave room in the tank for the back half of the route (lots of hills in NE/NW), don't stay at stops for too long (lest your legs get"cold"), and don't eat the entire lunch burrito!

    Marshals were given assigned slots in and email they sent out a few weeks ago. I don't believe there are set times for riders, I expect a get-ready-and-roll-out approach. I'm sure all will be revealed when they send out the "Read Before You Ride" message.
