Soo, there's been lack of discussions. comments lately other than the expected rides...so here's some stuff that just comes to my mind recently, maybe I can get some responses, feedback.....

1) Where's Joe? I miss seeing him along with his partner in crime, fella name Chris aka webgeek..

2) I've been watching TDF faithfully since Lemonds hay days, this year I've just been looking at the youtube summary of the last km sprints and highlights, seems like it has become kinda blah with the sky team so predictable in the mountains and really no true exciting contenders for past few years and no strong Americans cyclist to root for. I feel like the one day races are much more exciting to watch.

3) My last trip to north Georgia, I was pleasantly surprise to see all the road work pavement they have done, they finished the front side of Jacks gap and are almost finished with Woodys gap, should be some nice smooth descents to those riding up there this fall.

4) Looking forward to the big 4 September rides, Haven't really done much this year and just been doing the local rides and solo spins, albeit a few long distance ones...There's also another ride in October in Senoia, benefitting cystic fibrosis...

Anyways, that is my contribution to this forum, lets keep it going, and post your rides pls....

There's 6 Gap. What are the three others?

I'm registered for Chattooga this weekend and will be there if the creek don't rise.

Sometimes I want to know myself. For the past 2 months I've been working 7 days a week trying to remodeling MIL's house so we can move in it.

Lot more problems than planned on. This is the longest I've been off my bike.

Hope to be back pedaling in a couple months, till then keep the rubber side down!

Joe

One Love vs Wilson centuries, which do you guys think is more/less difficult in terms of climbing, both grade and length of climbs?

I honestly thought this was the best tour I've seen. Yes Team was dominant but it was a different rider. It had drama from the first stage, wrecks with leaders, Cobbles and the time trials were good too !
