Here is the link .... http://www.germanyvalleycabins.com/ourcabins.htm

Its a great area for "street" riding and has tons of off road riding for the dual sport guys (or gals). Since it's still cold outside it would also provide a nice warm environment to settle into as the sun goes down.

Madstrom and I are considering it. Thought I would throw it out to the inmates. Its a great chance for the street riders to get out and blow off some rust.
Y'all feel free to stop in if you need a stretch or to rest and relieve yourselves.. We will be at the compound over the weekend.. If there we can have a pot of coffee going or meet for lunch.. All welcome . No inmate turned away.

Have a great ride.

There's a place in Hopewell, Carters Courthouse Cafe. I ate there a few months ago for breakfast (steak, eggs, pancakes) and it was v/good. Been meaning to go back but it's the wrong way for me most mornings. It's on Main, near the courthouse. (duh.)

Joe's Inn in the fan has the best steak & eggs in town. The one in Bon-Air sucks when it comes to steak & eggs

Millie's across and down from Poe's is good, but I hate standing in line. Actually, speaking of Poe's it has gotten better. They use to suck on brunch and River City down there has a good brunch.

but the drive into town, one every couple of months is not bad. so my search for a local place continues.

Wild Rose's in Chester used to have a nice brunch. But Rose needs a day off

Steel Horse is ok, the cook needs to learn how to cook eggs They have screwed it up a couple of times

went into Sideline's Cafe last Sunday and got blasted by a loud sermon from a TV preacher

any suggestions for a mom & pop brunch place?
Try the Grill at Waterford. They do brunch Saturday and Sunday. The service can be hit or miss, but the food is great. They are right at Genito and Old Hundred.

I like Henricus down here in Chester, 5 mile loop, flat, wooded, follows the old river channel. We can mix the locations up.

Many of you already know how old/fat I am. Throw in gimpy knees so there's no illusions of burning up the course. At this point I'd be happy to run the whole thing.
I run all the time.... I live in the fan and run local roads and down at bells island at noon at times. I am also game to bike the buttermilk and northbank if that is your thing....

If you are in this area we can hook up. It is too much trouble to go run far from home so driving to run is a sure game to get UN-motivated :)

Fyi

Alpinestars WR-3 Gore-Tex gloves Size Large for Sale

I ended up with a great deal on a pair of these Alpinestars Gloves through a friend. They looked like they would fit from the size chart but they are too small. They are a Large but I would need an X Large. If you are interested I would like $90 for them. They are brand new with all the tags still on them. I took them out of the box and tried them on. As far as I know that is they only time anybody has worn them.

They are nice gloves and I think I am going to order the next size larger.

http://www.alpinestars.com/moto/glov...l#.URAiP3y9KSM

If you are interested let me know. I will be putting them on Craig's List shortly.
