2012 Dirty Dozen Training Rides

Any news on the date for the 2012 running ?
It is always the Saturday after thanksgiving, unless it got changed. I missed it two years ago cause I was in a wedding.
Dave – more people are using helmet cams lately. I also was under the influence of cold medicine.
I missed getting the jagoff on video who was coming up Kittanning Pike blasting horn as everyone was coming down at a good clip after Center. Seemed a bit dickish of driver guy… not sure if anyone else noticed.

So that would Saturday, November 24th, correct ? I am coming down from Canada where we have a different date for Thanksgiving (and it is always a Monday)…
@reddan, co-worker reminded me that the Pgh Great Race is this Sunday and that the 10K run probably will come down Blvd of the Allies about the same time we crossed over it last Sunday. It may also make it more difficult for anyone coming to the starting point to get there w/o crossing the course.
Up to you, but you might want to give some thought to an alternate starting point this weekend.
@jim, thanks for the heads-up.
If need be, we can always loop around via Fort Duquesne Blvd, the Point, and the trail.
Damn I missed the first ride already and I’m going to be out of town again this weekend. Hopefully I’ll be back in time next week but I don’t know what shape I’ll be in off the redeye.
Yeah I’m out again this week due to racing in the Great Race.
5k starts @8, 10k starts @9:30. Blvd will be tied up all morning. I’m missing the group ride since my wife is running the 10k, but will be heading out from S’liberty around 1p to hit High/Logan/Suffolk if anyone’s interested in a later start (W Roger?)
As I mentioned above, I’m likely to have very little in my legs this coming Sunday. I’m still planning to show up and (hopefully) ride, but I’m also looking for someone who wouldn’t mind being backup ride leader, *just in case* I fail to HTFU.
Preferably, someone who’s ridden High, Logan, and Suffering-Hellish-Burning in the past.
Quizbot, I might take you up on that. I’m doing the 10k with a quick swim in the river afterwards so itll be depending on time and my energy at that point.
@ Rice Rocket I would love to…but I already have plans for a different hill this week.
I hope some of you show. The rain isn’t supposed to start again until this afternoon, so hopefully it is not more miserable than it has to be. Though you never know what the weather is gonna be the day of..

i would, but im stuck @ work, and i hate climbing.
I got there at 10:15 and no one was there. Was I too late? It was a pain to get there so I’m thinking people might have met elsewhere.
We left at 10:10. Small group this week. Hopefully more people are able to make it and I hope it isn’t raining next week. I made Logan my bitch. Well, I didn’t fly up it, but I did it and the other hills without stopping. All of those times we did Suffolk on the decaf rides and I was frightened while riding down it fixed, as much as it sucks, I meant what I said when I said that I would rather climb Suffolk than ride down it. At least I know I can control my bike and not slip while going up a wet brick road.
Does anyone have a .gpx file of the whole route? I had it but I think I deleted it. I have some time off this week…

does anyone know if the route has been plotted yet?
so far i’ve found 9 differnt routes tagged as 2011.
I emailed Danny a few days ago…he hasn’t looked at Rialto, so hasn’t yet decided what he’ll do.
THis hill gets my vote as a replacement:
Since I am gonna be out if town this weekend, I plan to do the three hills on Friday at 10am instead if anyone wants to join me. Meet at the same place.

Good I can sleep late.
Oh my bad! Was over at Casa Rasta this weekend and drove down it thinking it would be good.
drove down it thinking it would be good.
“Good” is a highly relative term in this case.

Yeah, so, umm. let’s bump this back to noon.
SOmehow i was convinced to ride a century on thursday, and i may need a lil extra time in the morning to make sure my legs function.
Just a smidgen of time.
So noon, we’re good on that? excellent.
I don’t know that i am able to do this at all today, as I have to go out of town. Sorry dudes.
I need to put the Free Radical (to be technical, Eric’s Free Radical) on the ‘bent this weekend. Figure I might as well improve my Canton chances to “realm of possibility.”
