my training regimen of beer, sleep deprivation, and overtime at work should really pay off this year.

More than last year, but still no, haha.

See everyone on the party (greyhound) bus from Philly on the 28th!

Someone better order out and pay for some proper weather. I do not want to be coping with flurries or lightning over the Laurel Ridge!

I hope I make the time to test ride my rig with everything strapped to it at least once before Friday AM. This would mean the bar bag gets sewn in time too.

Still gotta hook up my dynamo taillight - but otherwise, bring it.

Hey veterans,

Do we meet literally at the fountain/point or up in the park area along commonwealth drive?



Reddan said...

Oh, is it this weekend?

Wesley said...

if it is possible (accessible), we met right at the reflecting pond of the fountain in '09.

Wesley said...

Meet time/leave time HELP:

meet at Point State Park at 530am.
Does the group/ride leave at 530am or at some time AFTER that?

If the latter, what time does the ride actually DEPART?
thks, w

"Wesley said...

Where did you get 5.30am from? I believe the meeting time is 5am..

Last year at the liberty bell, we arrived a little before 5am roughly in the area of meeting spot, and congregated with other cyclists - we left when it seemed like everyone was there and ready. We may have started a few minutes after 5, but not terribly long at all. According to the blogs, in 2009 the group left 20 minutes late but that's all.

P.S. I heard that Crush The Commonwealth refers to a Anti-Royal Wedding protest ride, where a couple of dozen cyclists will ride all day and night to avoid televised coverage of William and Kates nuptials. Is this true??

Adam said...

I'm bringing a pedal-powered monitor and for live Internet-streaming coverage of the royal wedding while we ride. The whole setup only weighs 45 pounds, and you can watch if you ride behind me.
