Always ride like no one has seen you but everyone is out to turn you into road kill.

Looks like there's 26 people that have expressed interest. Even though not all are likely to show, we should still have a real nice turnout.

I'm not either. It could be added just after Eastern Market or something. Belle Isle is a nice ride, it's just a one-way road that loops the outside of the island.
