Fargo Well I've been in Fargo now for over a week. It's not that bad. Not Grand Forks, but not that bad. Still looking for a job. I'm in no hurry though. I have a sugar momma now : ) Just kidding Jen. Hopefully, I'll be able to contribute to the bank soon. Biking here is crazy. The traffic in town is horrible. On Friday Jen had to go to Grand Forks to do some wedding stuff, so I decided that I would bike up there and then get a ride home. I took the 2300 out of the stable and headed north. It took me 35 minutes to get out of Fargo! Once out of town it was nice. I bet I didn't see more than 10 cars until I got close to GF. It was a hot and humid day. In the 90's with a strong tailwind. I took two bottles of Accelerade and a 1 liter camelbak full of water and Elete. I had to stop in Hillsboro to refill with water and gatorade endurance. I love the look on peoples faces in small towns when a guy in tight shorts and tap shoes comes into the convenience store. Priceless. 3 hours 46 minutes of riding time. 84 miles. Should be good prep for 24 hours of 9 mile at the end of the month. Are you ready guys? It should be a fun race. Since we're in the team division, I should have plenty of time to harass the solo guys. Can I get a roll call of who's going to be there? I'd like to get some good pictures of the event, so stay tuned for that. Greg are you going to make it? Later

What are these tap shoes that you speak of? ;)

35min just to get out of town? That sucks...

Last I heard from Greg, he said that he would be at 9mile. Not sure if he's racing or not though.

It is time that i come out of retirement. Dave I will be attending the 24 hours of 9 mile. I will be riding my old big wheel. I just hope the tire doesn't cave in and i hurt my time.

Heeee's Alliive! Lane, you better put some new grips on that 8000 as well. They're pretty sticky. Are you really coming?

Sorry to hear that Lane. I was looking forward to your great stories.

Thanks Cellarrat. I'll try to harass as many solos as possible, especially Paddy :)
