    To all interested,

    Yesterday we had the first century stage of the 2011 Tour De Mad Dog.
    Results below the Ride Report.

    I would like to thank Susan and John Pyron for putting on this event.

    Ride Report:
    This was a new ride for me and provided some new roads that will be memorable for quite a while. The day started out like many March mornings on the cool side but the previous nights snow was only visible on the grass and houses. All of the snow that hit the road was either gone or left a few wet patches on the edge of the road and in the potholes. Fourteen riders started the ride and were broken into basically 2 groups. The first 50 miles provided us with tail and crosswinds which helped keep the cold at bay. Our group pulled into the first Store stop (around 22 miles)just as most of the first group was leaving. When we lef the store it seemed to be a bit colder but I knew I’d get warmed up fast on the hill that was just south of the store. We kept rolling and made our way past The Jim Beam,Booker Noe Plant. The Sweet Smell of fermenting Bourbon filled the air and made the trip towards Boston even more enjoyable. We continue to New Haven deciding it best to continue past to our turn around, Lincoln’s Boyhood Home. As we started our return we had about five miles straight into the headwind to go until the lunch stop. After just that 5 mile stretch we would realized this would not be as easy as the trip out was and knew I had better fill the belly with some good lunch. Luckily, Diesel Dog spotted a beacon of light at the red light in town on our way through the first time. It said “Home Cooking”. Diesel joined me at the Shortline diner. In years past we had ate at the same establishment, under a different name, before. The last year or two it was a Mexican restaurant. As we pull in a familiar face opens the door and says ya’ll come on in and warm up. Turns out this is the same lady who use to run the Diner previous to the mexican restaurant. We were treated to the Angus Shortline burger with a grilled bun. This was a real good burger. Who knew the bottom buns sole purpose was to soak up the grease and not let it escape the resting place of my Belly. Fries accompanied my burger While Diesel Dog had the homemade chips. The only bad thing about this place was having to leave before getting a slice of homemade pie. Susan and John waited patiently for use to get ready and start heading back. We hoped on out Trusty steeds and headed back for the car. On our way back we got a great treat. Sunshine. This treat seemed to make the headwind more bearable and warmed us up a bit. We ended up catching up to AnchorDog and Chilly Dog who we using the “Nutirition and Hydration” method to ride the days event. Back past the Distillery even better. You could smell the progression of bourbon from fermenting to the mash to the boiling. Ahhh!!!! In and out of the last stop with 22 mile left we were warned about the bad drivers in these parts by the beer breath customer at the counter. Luckily he was walking home across the street. We get back to Shepherdsville where it generally helps to have your head on a swivel and a weird thing happened. Most of the drivers were nice. I saw many opportunities where drivers often pass us to turn right in front of us but today patience was the norm and we had a lot of drivers waiting for us. After one more hydration leak we finally arrived back at the start point. I started out the day not sure if wanted to ride to being real glad I did. I hope everyone ride was enjoyable.

    All interested,
    Weather permitting this weekend the 2011 Tour De Mad Dog will start.
    We start the Tour with a Prologue time trial. This will be a 6 mile fairly flat route going down and up Commerce parkway just outside Lagrange, Ky.
    This is one of only 2 times in the Tour that your actual time will actually count. The other being the uphill time trial in September. Come out early to get warmed up. We will be taking off in one minute intervals. Just so you don't come all the way out to Lagrange for a 6 mile ride. We will be having a tough little 35 miler after the Prologue.  As with all club rides they are open, but to be elligable for the Tour De Mad Dog Challenge you will need to be an LBC Club Member. Hope to see a few faces I haven't seen in a while. First rider goes off at 9:30.

    To all interested,

    Time to start gearing up for the riding season. I'm looking forward to another year of riding and eating as much as I want. To do that I tend to ride alot. I have been apart of the TMD for many years and always look forward to March when it all starts. Every year more and more people show up and there are always new faces. We started out as a small group of people and sometimes we would stay together the whole ride. Every year we have grown in numbers and sometimes I don't even realize we have new riders. It is getting to the point where 60 people will show up for a century. With the expansion of the group we need to remember why we do this. RIDING IS FUN!,etc. When people train for the goal of a century and need a comfortable, encouraging environment to ride in we have been there since 2004. This is evident by the number of people who show up at TMD Stages. The desired group of 6 or more riders at the finish is in place to help the newer riders,help the older riders,  and he
     lp any rider who may not be having his or her best day. There is much joy in helping your fellow rider reach a new goal or help them when they need reassurance that they can do it. Groups of people can accomplish great things.

    The 2011 Tour de Mad Dog Schedule is set. The rules this year have not changed but there will be 2 new bonuses added to the drawn pool of bonuses.
    First off I'll start with the bonuses.
    1. There will be a LBC Ride captain bonus. This Bonus will be 10 seconds for a max to 2 minutes(12 rides) for any club member who has captained and turned in ride sheets for ANY club ride(s) during the touring season which is from March 1st to October 31st. this will be determined by me from looking on the club statisticians website.

    2. There will be a LBC Ride captain bonus. This Bonus will be 5 seconds for a max to 1 minute(12 rides) for any club member who has captained and turned in ride sheets for ANY club ride(s) during the touring season which is from March 1st to October 31st. this will be determined by me from looking on the club statisticians website.

    These aim of these 2 bonuses is to help the touring schedule. I'm sure there are some new routes out there that people know about and hopefully they will share them with the club. Also, I know some of the usual routes need ride captains from time to time as well. The Recovery rides, Burdorfs rides and Saturday Slow and Easys come to mind. The VP of touring and every ride captain should be able to direct you as to how to become a ride captain.
