I'd just sprint to the front right away and then throw cookies down every time you got close. I know you'd hate all that starting and stopping. Maybe I'd pay Harley to have a chocolate cake ready for you at the halfway point. :D

A roadie trip to Richmond doesn't sound bad at all. I'll keep it in mind.

Finnbarrio, what type of mountain bike do you ride?

If it is in the 40's in Richmond in the middle of winter I am up for a raod trip. It gets really cold up here and it is worse on the bike with the wind chill. It is not only the cold but the ice on the roads, not to safe.

My (main) mt bike is a Rocky Mountain Slayer 50. I put a bunch of money into it recently - new (tougher) rims, cassette (changed it to 8 speed), new bash guard, seatpost, saddle. It kicks butt now. Going to Vermont next weekend to check out Kingdom Trails, so I wanted it to be in top shape.

My road bike is a Trek Pilot 2.1. I haven't upgraded anything on that, but I've only had it for a few months. I think a new saddle will be the first upgrade.

Yeah, I don't think I'd be road biking a whole lot in Maine in the winter. Now, snowboarding, that's a different story!

Cookies may only make me go faster since I'm good at catching things...as for coming down here you two have gotta do it. Then you can hear me complain about the cold while you two are sweating in shorts since you'll be used to be bundled up on the trails. My semesters over on Dec. 18ish but even before that wouldn't be a big deal since in art school you normally have less work at the end of the semester
