Racing...from the novice to seasoned / Potato creek services
« on: June 14, 2015, 03:06:03 PM »
with the race coming up soon, what does the park have available as services?  Specifically, are there showers that can be used?  I don't mind paying but the state web site does not say. 


Discussion here has been interesting. 

The persons to contact about the budget shortfall are your state representatives and senators.  you can find their contact information through the Find Your Legislator link.  Even better is to ask them about the budget shortfall in person when you see them.  Some actually go to town meetings to hear from voters. 

Thanks.  This will help with planning.  Versailles and I have a very adversarial and expensive relationship.   ::)

What is the deal with the trails in Avon?  Are users allowed to weed-eat them?  There are a couple of spots that need chopping back, but I don't know the rules here.

This is the eco-friendly way.  Reuse those plastic bags!

what are those things on your bar that are holding the bags?

honestly, the best thing you can do is ride each.  only you can decide what works best for you.

One other thing ... sometimes yelling "Rider Up" is for those following a rider.  When in a group, such a thing informs everyone there is another rider around.

Dang.  Hate to see you go.  But better things await you.  Enjoy the riding out there.  What I rode was absolutely incredible. 
You know where to find us!

I tried on the pants but the drawstring just won't cut it. It has one of those plastic, spring loaded cinch do-dads. It felt too loose and that was just in the dressing room. To bad since the price is reasonable.

I have a pair of these and will have to look at the waistband.  No problems when riding with them.  Nothing moves around unexpectedly.
For hands, I have been told my many that the bar mits are the way to go.  Seems like regular gloves or just thin liners inside of them are enough.  I've not tried them -- frankly, commuting both ways in the dark gets old quickly, so I don't know if I will. 
I have lobster gloves and my hands sweat enough that they get wet and cold.  I make it about an hour of my commute and then have problems. 
For the helmet, I was thinking if you stay in a fancy hotel, grab a shower hair cover.  Try it.  Then you know if such a thing will work for you and can get something specific.

Tech Bench / Five Ten dealer

Anyone know of a five ten dealer in the Indy area?  Wanting a set of shoes to go with my flats ... know I need to try the shoes on instead of just ordering online.

...Saw later that he made it out ok and got all stitched up...

We should all have the BCSP and BC Sheriffs Dept, phone numbers saved in our cell phones for emergency use. It has expedited more than one extraction of a downed rider.

Never thought of a direct dial.  Care to share the numbers?

.8" last night.  Thought it would have been more, on that it rained from 4 until after 10.
