Very much like Warsaw in terms of ground. Fast course, like Town Run. Last year was WET.
Perhaps this is a better question for the racing forum, but how does the fee impact races? Are the racers expected to still have the pass? Does the host organization provide them? Or is that an exemption?
I am NOT trying to put gasoline on the coals. Just a thought I have wondered about for a while.
How do you store your bikes? Esp with the shocks? horizontal? Vertical? Upside down?
Disadvantages to the vertical / upside down options?
The best way for me to store mine would be hanging from the ceiling. But I really don't want the shocks and hydraulics upside down for most of the winter if I can help it. I don't have the space to store them standing properly on the ground.
Really need that "Honey I shrunk the kids" ray for winter storage!

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.
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.
