You've got a great point...but if you comb your hair slightly to the left no one will notice.

Here's the location per google maps, http://www.google.com/maps?hl=en&saf...ctions-to&cd=1

Have we picked a firm date yet? April 7th, 14th or 15th are all good days.

Breakfast at Spar at 7:00AM (damn, that's early for us mid-sounders! ) followed by lunch at Fish Brewing around 1:30?!

If someone wants to lead a ride between breakfast and lunch, please jump in and lay it out! Maddaddy had some great ride ideas and so long as he can make one of the dates let's let him start the dialogue! Cool?

Okay, who's in???

I'll also post a link in the Mid- and North-Sound MAG posts to try and inspire more Riders to join in...

Cool2 don't fret

7:00 is the time i'll be there along with any other early birds. helps claim prime parking. i don't expect to ride until 9:00 at the earliest. but we'll see which way the wind blows. i have two routes planned. one with light forest roads, one without . both are around 200 and change. figure 5 to 6 hours in the saddle with stopping to smell the flowers included.

Duuuudes:

If the weather isn't too miserable, I'm going to try and make it for breakfast. I'm guessing that it'd take me an hour to get there...you'd see me around 8:XX o'clock. Don't eat all the hashbrowns!

I need to put some miles on the new rubber.

Anyone up here want to head down with me?

Okay, think sun!

By the way, I'm still shooting for a date in April, too!

Hay Maddaddy:

I might be a little short on time; family obligations and such.

Could I shorten either of these routes, if I needed to? Is there a spot where I could cut out, or is it a loop with no escape?

I'm probably good for a couple hours of riding after breakfast at most.

Let me know.

Thanks!

Anyone?

Any Middle- and North-Sound Breakfast MAG ideas?

I know this sounds like a better idea with blue sky in the forecast but now's the time to toss out ideas and make a plan!

No worries. There are plenty of places to cut out and those routes are just suggestions. Let’s see what kind of group we get and go from there. And please bring any route suggestions as well. Cheers.

Cool...

Today's weather is not looking anything like 30% chance of rain! I hope tomorrow is looking better but I have my doubts...Oly is a long way to ride in the rain only to ride further in the rain.

Geez, I just realized who I sound like.

I'll try my best fellas...
