My partner (one of the co-founders) and I have been living south of Miami in the Ride staging area since Mon, Nov 14, doing prep (aka "upload"), and then running rider registration on Thursday. On Friday & Saturday we were both on the road, him as "sweep" (recovering disabled bikes & bicyclists) and me as rider. And do you know he's 77 years old! Working 14-hour days for a week, he's a real hero.
Hence my absence from RealJock. Now we're in our Key West hotel room, having just come up from our big after-party downstairs here. We're in KW until Tuesday, when we return home for US Thanksgiving.
We're both already registered for next November, 2012, me as rider 63, my age then, as I was rider 62 this year. I'll post pics when I get them, since I wasn't able to take many pics on the road, and knowing that our official photographer would be taking close to his usual 8,000 I can access later.
