Now, if you yourself get lost and start doubling back, I guess that could get really confusing, real quick-like! Maybe bring an asphalt/gravel colored can of spray to cover any boo boos?!
You know....a lot of bicycle clubs do this ahead of time for their group rides. One of the local clubs that rides out here in the country where I live even has letters and numbers painted at intersections to designate different routes the club rides on a regular basis.

Getting them to stick on a gravel or dirt road may be a little bit of a trick though!

Soggy, but well. I am already looking forward to warmer weather. Is it RDV time yet?

We used to hang bits of construction marker ribbon at intersections. Orange, turn left, Yellow, turn right.

Of course, if you're color blind, you're screwed.

nah, write the color on the ribbon... Kind of takes away the spontaneous aspect that, well, makes K's ride's so fun!

All this organization is gonna make me sad . One of my fondest memories of last years RDV was seeing Knybanjo come back from his ride beaming and grinning from ear to ear . I said "How'd your ride go " and Kny says " perfect Boss , 100% attrition , I lost'em all".. Knybanjo was so proud , and I was proud of him . As it turns out some of the riders felt different , but they got over it .

You mean, I have to ride if I show? I thought you only had to show with favors for the Boss and then stand around the fire and tell lies for a few days. This really scares me.

Sure! I'll bring a couple of spare liver destroyers as well. Especially as I'll be coming from SLC.....

An Historical Tour

I will be leading an historical tour this year. We will leave at 10AM. A ride description and site description of the historic sites will be available on Friday.

This area is very rich in Revolutionary War history and historical oddities.

We will leave from the rear of Freeborne's at 10:AM.
I will be riding a R1100RT with a human passenger and a dog; so anyone should be able to keep up
Any street tire will suffice.

We should be able to do this on one tank of gas.
Lunch will be at the Snappy Lunch in Mt. Airy. Cheap and delicious pork chop sandwiches are their specialty.

We will be back with plenty of time to drink a few before dinner.

BigDoc screwed with this post 01-21-2012 at 05:50 AM Reason: more information
