Hey folks,
 
We’re getting closer to the LDR and we’re well on our way to having everything taken care of. This is where we are:
  • Hotel is booked.
  • Bike rack is installed on the top of the tahoe
  • Everyone is registered (except crash)
  • We have a sag driver (Marc Malamut)
Here is a quick checklist to use when packing for the LDR.
  • Tubes. Each person should have 4 tubes for their bike. If you’re riding a recumbent, you’ll need at least 3 for each wheel since the tire size is different.
  • Jersey – Please be sure to don your Team Hangover Jersey!
  • Tools – Ill have tools for common issues, but if you need something special, you’re responsible for it. (I guess this is for you, Al.)
  • Cash – You’ll need cash for the following:
    • Hotel room. We have two rooms – we’ll split everything down the middle. The rooms are supposed to be $90 each.
    • Food – This ride makes you hungry. We make plenty of stops and you’ll need cash for food at the hotel or wherever we stop.
    • Gas – I take wear and tear on my truck, so please kick in for gas. Remember, “betsy” will have a lot of miles to travel.
    • Incidentals – Please have extra cash for incidentals. Just in case something happens.
    • SAG Driver – Marc is making a big commitment to drive for us. I’d like to make sure we pay his way and maybe throw him a few bucks.
  • Clothing – Bring a bathing suit! The hotel has a pool. Also bring clothing in case of rain – windbreakers for the morning are wise also. Please also bring two pair of biking socks – you should change them in the middle of the ride.
  • BEER BEER BEER! – We don’t have a designated beer duty person. So what we can do is bring a cooler and get beer along the way. We go through a lot at the end, so Im going to ask everyone to pitch in.
  • FOOD – We need fuel during the ride. We’ll hit a wawa and get fruits, bars, sandwiches, etc. for lunch. You’ll need it.
  • ADVIL/ASPRIN – Pain happens. Bring your supply.
That’s all I can think of right now. Expect another email from me for more information. I’ve gotta go see what Neil Cherry is up to on the LDR website.
 
Get Excited!
