Dirtphalt

Awesome!

Hard to believe the summer is practically over, no idea how that happened and it's not like it was a blur, very hard to describe...

Good news is that cycling was a great distractor!

I have a couple of totally new areas to show you all that I have never taken you to before.
We are probably doing dirt all 3 days because there's so much to get to.
Think of this when you drift off to sleep tonight:

Very much looking forward to this weekend. Unfortunately I will be solo this year. Rox has foot surgery scheduled for the first week of October to repair an old injury that is getting worse. She is still allowed to ride, but was told to take it easy and not put a lot of pressure on her foot. All of her riding this summer has been flat short rides.
I guess she could bring her Honda Monkey and motor pace us up the dirt roads.

She will be very much missed on the rides and I hope she will come join us in whatever capacity she can.
Will you still be able to maintain KoM status without your riding partner?
Opportunity could knock for someone else this year......
Will Nick bring cycling glory back to his home state of NJ?
Can BBDave find the lost suitcase of courage and leave us all behind?
Stay tuned it will be interesting!

Looking forward to this year. Hope the weather is going to be optimal!

Any chance the colors will be starting to change at this time of the year up there?

They are already starting up here. The weather is getting cool up this way and south usually gets the same way a couple of weeks later. I would think there should be a pretty good amount of color in three weeks.

Saw my first red leaves on a swamp maple yesterday.
Usually we have this event in October. I moved it up this year hoping for great weather so we will be able to be outside the entire time.
And there should be early foliage change in this area. Peak here is usually first or second week of October.

Assuming....and at this point, it's all just assumptions....but assuming I can pull this off on my end...is there anyone interested in picking me up at the airport, take me to this event, host me while I am there, and when it's over, kindly drop me off at the airport on my way back to Austin?



I will bring my own bike which means I will have a ritchey breakaway case.

Is Albany the best airport to fly into from Austin?

Austin as in Texas?

Unfortunately, you aren't allowed into New York without a 2 week quarantine at this time.
