not too much....you guys get wasted with snow out there.....it's been pretty bad out here lately too though....when it's dry and the wind lets up, we'll get out unless it's near zero...

The wind has been a problem lately....and the frozen rain....

I saw your other post too....when it gets down below freezing, you probably want to put on som 78's in the rear and 80 or 78's up front.....

Cyber is boring as hell, but good for practice in parking garages when business are closed, like on Sundays, in the winter to keep you out of the cold...

If you go to a garage, sweep it up first...saltdust get slippery when it's cold outside

I think my 77a's are like 98a's today..., refreshing 17 degrees. Maybe we should have a winter solstice fest and line up some ice cones or something? My bearings are still frozen, BTW...

Moved? Did you leave the Rock City area for work or just trade houses in the same general locale?

I like the idea of Winter Solstice Slalom. It's got a nice ring to it. My only concern with the format is that if those cones freeze to the course, it might make for some new race strategies: Go clean or go to the hospital. And just to prevent criddling, we could ice down a two foot square patch on the inside of the cone. THAT would keep everybody honest.

So the important question is where exactly do we hold this event? If we triangulate everybody's location, we're probably racing in Racine. Or something like that.

Cold weather & snow on the roads hurts my brain and cramps my style!

bumpalump
i know last summer there was talk of getting an outlaw type of race in lansing...the parking garages around MSU seemed to be the spot...or find a mellow hill in a parking lot, or something.

would anybody be interested in trying to get this going again this year?

I'm still here. I've graduated to capitalizing letters and using things like proper punctuation and grammar.
