Theresa will be sending out the Time Trial results on Monday. It took us a little longer than usual due to a whole bunch of family/work commitments that meant we were not really home until this afternoon! The good news though is that we did a Time Trial with Spokesmen on Wednesday using an app called Webscorer on an Ipad and it worked very well. We were able to time and publish the results the same night.
We wanted to try it with the guys first because we only had 16 riders. My thought was that if I screwed up the timing I only had to buy 32 beers and some nachos and all would be forgiven and forgotten. The ladies would have cost me 136 beers, healthy appetizers and then nachos PLUS I would never hear the end of it.......Oh c'mon you know it's true. :)
So Monday night looks pretty good for a ride as of typing this, 10pm Sunday, let's meet up at Evraz as usual at 6'ish. There's a couple of things I want to do before we ride.
1. There are too many riders in G5 and G6 so I want to put another Group in-between. Nicole will be leading this Group. For the sake of simplicity we will just bump all the Groups after G5 up one and add G11, or Group Spinal Tap....
Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and...
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it's louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You're on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you're on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don't know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don't you make ten a little louder, make that the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [pauses] These go to eleven.
Shane M is in Calgary this week and asked me if I would look after G9 for him. So, hopefully I'll be riding with you if all goes to plan. One thing I would like us all to do is focus on safe passing procedure. I was quite thrilled when Terri reported how impressed other riders were at the Golden Triangle when they saw how well our riders conducted themselves and I would like to set up a couple of opportunities for each Group to safely pass and be passed.
That's it for now, I will also be sending this out via email. If you do not receive it. let me know. I may have your address wrong.
I tend to be the noisy one, Theresa and the Ride Leaders are the real story.
