Anyone here doing the Palm Springs Century on February 9th?
JaseinOC saidMy roommates have a house out there so I get to go pretty often... I do like it, but I think for bike riding it is not the best. It'll be a tough ride in the wind and heat... but its a good challenge.
mrk100 saidWe (me and Ironman4u) are probably doing it. I have good friends in PS and get out there often. Had a good ride there a few weeks ago. It was about 40 in the morning and only got up to 65..not too windy....if it is like that it will be great.65 is lower than most nighttime temps here.

I LOVE LOVE when you hit on me. Please do it more often
paulflexes saidDoes it require being on test and EPO to win?
ART_DECO saidIf I get sent to AZ again, I'll end up riding some serious mountain terrain. By November I'll probably be able to stay at the front of the pack the entire time and wonder why they're so slow (ok, wishful thinking).paulflexes saidDoes it require being on test and EPO to win?
Speaking of a century... please continue to keep in mind our November ride to Key West, 100 + 65 miles. I know your next out-of-state contract dates aren't fixed yet, but if you're around, and considering the serious biking you're doing, you'd be able to return home as close as the week before and still jump on your bike and do it. The only other issue being the fundraising, but you can do that wherever you are. And just think, you'd get to enjoy seeing me huffing and puffing along for 2 days.
erik911sd saidWhat's the longest ride you've done? Hour-long spin classes won't really prepare you for spending 6+ hours in the saddle.
erik911sd saidPalm Springs was the second century I did and didn't do anything special to train up to it. There is so much downhill on it, if you can easily do a 55 mile ride, you could probably do PS. I haven't done more than 65 miles in the last couple months and I'm not worried about it.Endurance cycling is as much about technique as it is about endurance. Actually it's more.
InTheSaddle saidLooking for a buddy to do the 56 mile ride.This is why I enjoy MTBing over road riding.
