As the title suggest, I thought  we could use this thread as a way to post open invitation training rides. This Sunday, I'm doing a lakefront ride:

Map:    http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=5841901

Start: Buckingham Fountain

End: Buckingham Fountain

Start Time: 9am

End Time: 11:30-noon-ish

Pace: I'd like to keep around a 14-18 mph pace


Description:

It's just simply riding the lakefront in it's entirety. It equates to about 36 miles + whatever miles it'll take to get to Buckingham and back (for me 42 total miles). Weather looks like crap for Sunday (chance of rain - 40 degrees) - from my experience training for marathons, I've found crappy conditions only make me stronger.

Wish I could. Will this be a weekly thing?

It's open to whenever, where-ever, really. It could be mid-week, weekend, monthly, etc. It can start city center, burbs, etc. Basically, this thread is meant to connect people with other people for company on longer training rides.

I'm going to start making longer weekend rides (except next week as I'm out of town) and posting here. Others are welcome to do the same, I'll join you if I can.

I am up for that.

I'm free on Sunday. As long as the rain isn't coming down incredibly hard, I wouldn't mind riding. TBD.

i think they are saying 70% chance of rain, but yea i am up for it.

If in future you ever get out to the N or NW burbs or plan on passing through the general area, let me know. Sounds like a great idea.

So, I'll be at buckingham at 9am, I will wait around for 10 minutes and head out. I'm tall and riding a green Trek 520 and will probably be the only person there, if I had to guess. Bring your rain gear and a warm spirit, it's going to be a cold, soggy ride.

I have been called into work, sorry for the late reply.  I am up for this though.  I am planning on doing the fvp on April 20 if any one wants to work towards that goal.

Dang, I totally would, but I have stuff going on the last two weekends of April. Will you be doing it during the first weekend of April or the last?

I'm up for doing the FVP on April 20th. I hope that it will not be as soggy as yesterday's ride....I should've brought a paddle - fenders were useless.

I'm out of town this weekend, but I'm up for a 55-60 miler the weekend after (3/23 or 3/24).

3/23 and 3/24 might work for me.  As for 4/20, i have discovered that the beer exploration group is planing a 90 mile ride that day.  I am thinking that would be cool.  There is a part of me that would like to try for the r-12 and april would be a good month to start so mabey 4-13 for the fvp. 

Ha. It looks like everyone is free when I'm not and vice versa. I will be free for April 13, Deet. Maybe we could tentatively schedule that day?

We're exactly 2 months away from the first 200K - 9 weekends left to go!
