    I was headed home a bit Late and had to stop at El Camion at the top of the hill. Best tacos for miles. If he's open, I always stop in.

    OK, I'm throwing this out there - we may be doing part of this ride this sunday, 2/28. Probably starting in Oxford and heading north OR starting in Danbury at Panera bread (Old Marcus Dairy) and heading to Kent or the Toymakers in Falls Village and then heading back to Oxford.
    Either way there will be dirt roads involved. Pace will NOT be fast as I'm still breaking in my 690R.
    Temps will be topping out in the lower 50s but it will probably be a chilly start.
    Chime in here or pm me if you want more info. I will confirm the ride/route by Saturday.

    If we get enough locals we'll definitely start in Oxford. Makes more sense. We can meet at Southford Falls which is right near the beginning of the route.
    If it's just my regular crew then we'll probably head to Panera for coffee and head out from there.
    I would prefer to leave from Oxford myself.

    OK here's the update on Sunday's ride - We're going out but it won't be all day. Whoever wants to go we can meet up at Southford Falls parking lot around 8:30-8:45 and we'll probably be back around 1ish. However, if you plan on going please let me know ahead of time if possible. If everyone who commits is there then we will head out.

    The route will take us from Oxford to at least Kent. From there it will all depend on time as to how much farther we go. We may end up in Falls Village at the Toymakers Cafe for a late breakfast/coffee or whatever. The route will probably be pretty sloppy with the rain we had this week. Also, the Litchfield hills woke up to a couple inches of snow this morning.

    But considering it will be Feb 28th and eventually in the 50's any distance will be considered a good ride!!

    C'ya Sunday!
