    • Ann

      Thanks Patti for organizing the pace line for us slower riders. It was great not to have to ride an hour to get to the ride. The route went right by my house.

    • Patti

    Good ride!! Even if everyone didn't bring his or her big boy pants to do the full ride.. yes, Lou... Im really talking about you!

    July 19

    • Landon

      I understand. Limitations are good to know. I think the 60 was a sound idea to ride. The last 40 was not as enjoyable as they should have been. Hate I didn't get to see all too drafters today!

      July 19

    • Landon

      **all you drafters**

    Great ride! It does not matter if we are our own group or part of a larger group, TOD folks are terrific! And a big thank you to Carnell for pulling 61.1 of the 63 miles! I love coasting up hills. :)

    July 19

    • Michael

  • Carnell L G.

    Rookie question✋. Will there be cue sheets or do I need to find a way to print my own?

    July 18

    • Daniel M.

      plus there is a good chance you would be able to follow the pack...

      July 18

    • kelli

      There is a cue card at the reg table.

      July 19

  • Landon

    Who's in the for whole century?!?

    July 18

    • Mike

      Don't worry, we always have a large group doing the 100 but be warned, the front pack will take off fast and on purpose to separate from less strong and less experienced riders. They treat it like a 100 mile race. It's a challenge to stay with the front peleton.

    • kelli

      Signed up for the century. Prob will ave 15-17 mph. Anyone else in the slow group with me?

      July 18

  • Scott C.

    I decided to still ride, doing the 60.

    July 18

  • Daniel M.

    Oh good! 60 mile start is at 8:30! A chance I'll be awake....

    1 · July 17

  • Scott C.

    Thanks to whoever "shined up" my description.

    July 7

  • Lou

    Doing the 60.

    1 · July 17

  • Carnell L G.

    maybe coming out for the 60 mile.... even though I don't think anyone has the same pace as me

    July 16

    • Daniel M.

      just watch for the right, left, and go straight stuff...!

      1 · July 17

    • Carnell L G.

      Dan someone has to heard the sheep; but I also discover how to load routes on my Garmin so that should help. The one I have doesn't so streets names or anything but it show a line and tells you when your off course.

  • Mike

    By the time I come dragging in after a 100 I hope you save us some food but saving some beer is mandatory!

    July 16

  • Nate

    Just doing the 30.

    July 16

  • kelli

    Signed up for 100. Thinking of doing 60 though unless there is a group of ladies for the century.

    July 15

    • Natalie

      Hey Kelli. I signed up for the 60 mile route. Think the 100 miles are on next year's agenda for me!

      July 15

    • kelli

      Thanks Natalie. Hope to see y'all there. I think I will do 60 so as to not ride alone.

      1 · July 15

  • Scott C.

    I may not be able to ride this ride. I almost cut my thumb off Thursday in an accident. I'll have to monitor it.

    July 14

    • Thomas S.

      That sounds horrible!! Hope it heals fast and well. That said, I might be able to keep up with you, if you have to ride with one arm in a sling on Saturday!!

      July 14

  • Wendy D.

    Decided on the 60

    1 · July 14

  • Murph

    If the replacement rear wheel arrives in time, 60.

    July 14

  • Thomas S.

    I am hoping to do the 100M with Shawn (and other TOD's), so unless he abandons the ship...

    I don't like anything longer than 100k either and I know this is a hilly route, but I need to get some longer rides in before New Bern!

    July 9

    • Thomas S.

      I might scale back to the 60 depending on legs and weather on Saturday!

      July 14

  • Daniel

    Just signed up for the 60.

    July 14

  • Joe T.

    I'll be doing the 100, so please save me a few crumbs from the buffet line....

    July 12

  • Pat R

    60 miles, 8:30 start for me

    July 12

  • Ann

    1 · July 9

    July 9

  • Daniel M.
