I’ll be there. I initially wanted to train and score points on this but instead have opted for drinking and party all night like all month so I’ll be fighting just to survive. As for the ride in between the hills..it’s mellow really. Just stay loose. The bit between the top of eleanor and florers/tesla is pretty nippy but you can find people to pace with who will ride at your rate.
The dirty dozen, it will rule, it will suck, pace yourself and don’t skimp on the little debbie’s or mountain dew!
PS: thanksgiving in philly.. seventy degrees and dialed, me and my buddy Ian sesshed belmont plateau until he ripped his derailleur off on a log. Good times happy thanks everybody.
