    Thought this was a good idea.

    I need someone to go to Diablo with this weekend 6/14-6/15.

    I plan on taking Diablo up on their free hotel room deal. I plan on leaving around 5:00AM from Alexandria on Saturday 6/14.

    PM me if you would like to go. I can fit 1 maybe 2 additional riders in my car.

    Snowshoe???

    Hate to cut into your thread but I wanted to know who from Richmond was going to Snowshoe the next 3 weekends.
    I wouldn't mind splitting the cost of a place with a few folks. It would be my son and I.
    We're pretty chill and clean...we just want a place to crash at night and a shower after riding.

    Thanks

    I don't care if you sleep. It's a 2008 Subaru Outback XT. We can leave later, just means less riding on saturday.

    Just noticed this post from a couple weekends ago - maybe this dude would still want to split gas money for the race weekend.

    Plattekill

    I'll be heading to Plattekill for the 3rd stop of the Gravity East Series on either the night of the July 1st (Thursday) or sometime on the 2nd (Friday). I should have a few open spots on my bus if anyone wants to carpool. I will be leaving from Richmond, VA and could pick up riders between there and Roxbury, NY. Just send me a PM if you're interested.

    World Cup Finals Windam NY

    Is anyone in the NC TENN MD VA area even remotely interested in trying to go to the WC finals at Windam on August 28??? I'm in Roanoke... I've got a 2000 Subaru Outback with room for 1 bike besides mine...I just had the whole efing car overhauled and tuned up for about $850...and even though it has high miles...its running like a champ...new everything...decent milage but not awesome...I get about 400 miles to a tank of gas...at roughly $40 a tank, it would require about 3.5 tanks so about $140 in gas round trip should do it...

    We would really need at least Fri. Sat. Sun. then Mon. to drive back ugh!!!

    It's about 9 hours...the guy up there said that if I /we could be coerced into volunteering for the race, he'd give us a free place to camp...I'm on a severe budget...in this ****E economy...but I am efing Gagging to watch the top WC racers live and in person instead of on Freecaster for a change...I would be into picking you up if you are north of Roanoke...but not in Ohio...if enough of us go...we may even be able to pitch in and actually get a room somewhere

    C'mon...9 hrs to chill an arms length from Peaty, Minaar, Sam the Assasin Hill if he's healed up...The Athertons!!!!...and then actually watch them shred???? Sounds reasonble to me!

    Let me know
