Steph: I agree with Bob, Bette and a number of others. PNER got AERC to
implement the LD finishing rule for good reasons. It works! A course is a
course. To complete the course is to complete the course. The rule sets
up the course - don't change the rule. It seems that the overall opinion
from LD riders is to not make the completion any less challenging! Let's
keep it that way!
As to the other issue - hold times - that is a RM's decision. RM's know
the course and the logistics of the ride. The riders get to know all about
them at the pre-ride meeting and should ride accordingly!
