Adventure Ride Everyone! Who's Ready? Hello? /cricket, cricket/

It ain't Garmin but it'll get me there and back.  
Tape and paper:  8 cents.  
 Not having to be associated with anything Jonathan Vaughters related: priceless.

   The spring classics are upon us so it's time to once again strike out for adventure!  I put out the all points bulletin for adventure seeking riders hoping I would get a couple hardcore guys.  When rain and snow rolled in I figured it would narrow the field further.  Sadly, the Nookinator was working (boooooo!), Glen is struggling with his road biker/mountain biker split personality illness,  2N Glenn doesn't like to get his bike dirty, and evidently DASP has been having some injury issues.  So as the temps hung around 40 degrees and the sky was drizzling it became a solo operation.

King Of Burlingame: Great, Current State of Rap Music: Yuk

 These days I choose my mtb races by watching their helmet cam videos on-line and if it appears I won't kill myself I put it on my to-do list.  Burlingame looked good and it was a time trial so I reasoned I wouldn't be holding too many people up with my constant dismounts and running.  All good until . . .

Yep, it's true. Spring has sprung, and our custom team hats from Walz Caps have arrived.  I'll be getting these out to those deserving folks who have officially signed up on BikeReg over the next week or so...

For the rest of you, get on the ball and head on over to BikeReg and join the fun!

Where Are The Best Hills?

In relation to the "north of Boston" area, where do you guys, and gals, think the best hills are? I'm looking for a good distance to elevation ratio (meaning, how far do I have to go to get some "real" climbing in?). Do I have to drive up to NH or VT? After being able to climb thousands of feet while in Costa Rica (more on that later), the local hills just aren't cutting it for me...
