Anyone have ideas for a post ride meet up location?

Also, I owe Max his multi-tool, without which I would have turned around and gone back home. Is his victory, perhaps, karmic retribution? Let me have your snail mail address, Max, so that I can fulfill my obligation to you and win the favor of the cycling god.

I am not going to be in Pittsburgh most likely this weekend, however I am down with throwing a BBQ at my house at some point in the near future. I live RIGHT next to Riverview Park and there are Mountain Bike trails right from the house, so if anyone is into that its a prime spot. There is a decent 2 mile loop around the park with lots of twists and turns that would be sweet for a little impromptu crit-type race action as well.

Once the ole' taint heals up I'll be hosting every other Tuesday night mountain bike rides again from my crib starting on probably the 5th of June.

Bike race across the state planned for next year

Wednesday, May 16, 2007

By Tracie Mauriello, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
HARRISBURG -- Plans for the American Eagle Outfitters Tour of Pennsylvania bicycle race were announced this afternoon in the Capitol.

The 500-mile race planned for June 2008 starts in Philadelphia and ends six days later in Pittsburgh, where an estimated 100,000 spectators are expected to gather at Point State Park to watch the cyclists barrel toward the finish line.

Organizers say the event will raise the profile of Pittsburgh, of Philadelphia and of American cycling.

Organizers say it will be the first race of its kind in the United States for the class of riders younger than 25 and offers a $250,000 purse, the largest in the world for the class.

Major corporate sponsors for the race are American Eagle Outfitters and Healthy High 5, an initiative of the Highmark Foundation.
