Ok, next issue, I'll be trying to find a place around there to crash so I don't have to drive 2 and a half hours back, any suggestions??

After all, gas is finally down to a cheap rate (1.98) NOT!!!!

You will be riding this Wed, right?


It would be cool to have you on the ride! This is my favorite group ride this season and on a fun trail. Hope to see you out there.

There are quite a number of park benches at Stony. Bring a blanket.
It might even help you prepare for your mission. :)

Not unless you plan on riding LATE. The main group rides (usually) from about 6:45 to 8:00-8:15.. It's been staying light till close to 9PM, so we should be more then safe.

I plan on being there, but it'll probably be a easy ride for me. Still recovering from the *beep* ride that Mike and I did last night... :roll:

don't sweat it, just have fun :D climbing is something that can be worked on in time. besides... that 180* turn near the top of mt sheldon gets a lot of people, lol. i've seen some great bikers who climb like mtn goats dab and fall on that thing ;)

I might make it out tonight but I'll have to be early.
I need to be home by 8:00 which means I pretty much need to be back in my car by 7:00. :(

So, I might bump into some of you there.
will anybody be there for a 6:00 to 7:00 loop?
