    I will be leading a BIG bike friendly (intermediate difficulty in reality) ride with 90% single track. It will dump us out at Monache Meadow Jeep Trail, which we will take all the way to the far back corner (4th water crossing) and have lunch. If there is a lot of interest, we will have to break the group down into smaller ones to minimize traffic.

    I will post GPS tracks very soon...wait...I do not know how to post a GPS track. PM me your email address and I will send it to those who are interested.

    For 100% cotton tee-shirts you should select the next size up from normal unless you like a tight-fitting garment.

    They do shrink a bit when laundered. I wear a size large for everything except tee-shirts and sweatshirts - then I get a XL and they are perfect.

    The shirts are Port & Company (private label for Champion) 6.1 oz,100% cotton (same weight as a BeefyT) with commercial grade UV screen print inks. The imprint will outlast the shirt. Only first quality here. :D

    Ah heck. Better pee on my turf before there's no turf left.

    XL T-shirt for me please.


    Also, I won't be bringing the Husky. I'll be on a Beta 520 RS.

    Thanks,
