    Hi all,

    I am signed up for the sunday ride of the triple bypass, but am considering "upgrading" to the double-triple. Is any one else near by riding in the TBP? I am looking for considerations between the two available rides (both sunday and the double-triple are now "first come first serve, as the lottery is over). I am also looking for local riders to train with...

    I believe the first day is already sold-out.

    The first day is sold out, but the double remains open (1st and 2nd day combined are still available). They said they would refund my 2nd day slot if I sign up for the double....very accomodating I must say...I am talking with my wife about "pulling the trigger" on the committment required to do the double ride.

    I will add that Bob at Team Evergreen was very accomodating. I signed up for the Double this afternoon, paid the full entry fee of $290, and then Bob immediately (as promised) refunded my Sunday entry fee of $150 back to my banking account. I really appreciated the promptness, flexibility and absense of any "transfer" fee. Now I need to continue my training. I have been commuting 20 miles daily all winter (even in a wicked snow storm on skinny tires) and have a good base..........here's to suffering!
