    Hampton Roads 2012 New Year's Day Ride
    <!-- #dg-post-title --><!-- message -->
    The Worst Kind has taken the lead for this year's ride:

    "Talked to the fine folks at Jeb's earlier - since the 1st is a Sunday, Jeb's will be closed.

    The Warrior Grill in Virginia Beach would be a good alternative - they do a very good job accomodating a bit larger group. They open at noon, and are ready to seat us together.

    Unless there is a vociferous protest, here is the plan:

    0830: Meet at the Wawa on Holland Road. Everybody ought to fill up.

    0900: Kick-stands up. Head out to Pungo, run some backroads out there. Take backroads over to Hickory. Pose for a group picture at the "First Tag" at the bridge on Bunch of Walnuts Road. Head back over to the Beach, go down Atlantic Ave, take another group picture at the Neptune (with the bikes), go down Shore Drive, hang a left on Great Neck Road and head down to the Warrior Grill.

    1200: Warrior Grill opens, and we jump in and eat lunch.

    1300: It's all over. Go home."

    Looks like we are going to have incredible weather this year, 60+ degrees and partly cloudy.
    Got my back in town again, looking forward to meeting up with everyone.

    I like your proposal TWK.

    Wanna use this thread or just keep it in the Hampton Roads Chatter?

    I'll post it here for consumption and discussion, that way it is easy to find.

    I updated the first post to avoid confussion.

    TWK - Do we need a Roll-Call to get a head count for the Warrior Grill?

    Crappy weather today - better now than this weekend.

    Oh, and not sure if the First Landing State park idea was knocked out or not but it would be a great edition to the ride especially since we'll be riding right passed it. (64th street & Atlantic)
