Re: [RC] GERA Elevator June 22 - rides2far@xxxxxxxx

Who can tell me something about the ride in Dawsonville GA in 
June?  I'm thinking of going.  1st timer.  I'd enjoy hearing any 
detailed description.  I want to be able to picture myself there 
while I'm riding the conditioning rides this month.  

Vet check has shade. Trail is rolling lots of up and down but nothing 
long. Tends to have lots of very hard packed dirt road with some big 
gravel. There's a good sized river you cross a couple of times that's 
good for cooling off. If you'll manage your shade/sun (trot in sun 
till you get in the shade and slow down there if you want to walk any)
you can handle the heat. Make sure you bring the sponge. It's got 
quite a bit of shade. 

I've finished it lots of times, won it once. Don't let the core temp 
get high, I walk up the hills when it's hot or mine cook. I never pad 
but I've put easyboots over shoes and done it twice. That's what we 
did last year, easyboots in front over the shoes.
