    So it's been a little bit of everywhere. The plan originally was to have the rider who currently has the baton bring it here to me and then I was going to take it back to the Atlantic via Myrtle beach, which is where it started it's journey almost 2 years ago. With that said, if someone wants to arrange to pick it up and drive it around, that's fine too. There's no fixed itinerary. Each rider who has it takes it with them and photographs all the cool places that the baton travels. There's a SPOT that goes with it so that people can follow along.

    With all that said, here is a link to the relay thread. More info and that way we aren't clogging up the Cville thread.

    I’m about ready for a pavement ride. Just got tags for my bike and need a few pavement miles on it before the S500. But currently running non-DOT tires that are hella sketchy on pavement.

    i'd be down. name a time and a place. :p

    edit: we should maybe do, like, a text group, or fb chat group. what with ADV_Heff posting about an opportunity at 2:17 and then complaining about no bites at 7:53... ;)

    or maybe i just don't get on here frequently enough...don't you fudger have jobs? or things to do on a friday night?

    Good idea… Anyone who wants in and is on FB, PM me your actual name and I’ll set up a group messenger chat. Will make things much easier. I stay relatively anonymous online so please PM me your info.

    Family obligations this weekend, I do like using breweries and independent restaurants as an excuse to ride though.

    Is anybody heading up to Bob's BMW in MD on Saturday to see Bret Tkacs? They're paying the tax on stuff you buy that day in case you needed to pick anything up while you're there.

    Indeed. It was nice up there this morning. And almost no traffic. Went about 40 miles, then took 33 to Gordonsville and headed back toward C-ville and over the mountain to home.

    FYI, it’s Shenandoah 500 weekend. Be prepared for company and lots of potential two way traffic.

    thanks for the warning, and it was cool to see ya out there!

    not so much traffic. didn't realize the north end of Hall Springs didn't let out on pavement! so we got another few unplanned miles of gravel on, heading back down Long Run. haha!
