BC Bike Race

Registration for 2008's race opens in three days. Word on the street a while ago was that this was going to run earlier (end of May - June) than the inaugural event. That would mean that there would be no chance to do it - impossible for me to get the time off work. However, next year's race is June 28 - July 4th. That changes everything.

I've been dying to do a race like this. During the last 24 hr race, a thought kept popping into my head, "I'm riding in circles." A point-to-point race, in a place I've never been before, on lots of single track . . . . . how exciting is that!

Hopefully the planets will align themselves and next June 28th I'll be lining up at the start of this race. Who's coming.

I wanna go! So lets see how to convince the missus?

"Honey, Craig said he'd do the entire BC race in the buff."

"He said that."

"Yup, but only if I can go"

"Would you be racing in the Buff to?"

"NO, but I'll wear a kilt and hang some bagpipes off me back"

I ain't gotta clue where I was going with this but if she'd let me and my credit card is still good unless we could find a really kind sponsor, I want in.

Goat - check your mail box -

we may be able to work something out

Matty - I can't see how Chico could do that - but very intriguing indeed!
