    Pretty good single track up there? I wish I were more hooligan and could just bomb that stuff!

    Check out the (edited) first post of this thread. Go ahead, plan a ride!

    This Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, is the only day coming up that I could do a ride. The current forecast is calling for showers -- and actually Sat/Sun are forecasted dryer -- but I am going to tentatively plan to ride on Friday. Someone else should speak up to instigate, if they'd like to ride Sat or Sun ...

    Friday is starting to look like the worst day weather-wise.

    Saturday works for me too...

    I can't do Sat or Sun so I'm still planning on Friday, as long as it's not more than intermittent showers. Meet at Grand Central @ 9 am. PM me if you plan to join.

    Gunna try.

    Have some neglected maintenance to do on the bike, but I gotta get up early anyway. If I can get myself out of bed, I will be there.
