Less than a week to go, and I join 8000 other riders this weekend (the 9th and 10th) on a trip from the University of Washington campus in Seattle to Holladay park in Portland Oregon. I think I will break fast at 5AM and then start the ride at 6AM.
In that time I will consume 20 sandwiches, 20 mocha-chocolate brownies, 5 gallons of water (with electrolytes) and still lose weight. Fortunately, there are several places to chow down along the way.
This might be a wet ride with the weekend forecast predicting a chance of showers along the route.
Wishing for a smooth ride and no rain, just a gentle shower to knock off the salt.

>Now I'm all ears :)
Of course, though I imagine all that dirt digging, concrete crushing, and general carpentry mayhem may have similar effects, eh?
BTW, I meant to write 8000 riders, not 800 (must edit).
