Sunday, 4-5. Will tradition die?
I can't believe it's Friday and no one has posted a call for "The Ride" on Sunday. The OJ is grumbling from the Rockies as we speak.
I would be happy to lead a nice 3-ish hour loop from Bantam starting at 10 AM. If no one is interested in traveling that far to start, I'm flexible on location. Any takers?
I might be up for a heathenistic ride from Collinsville or New Hartford (Bantam? nobody lives in Bantam). Maybe include a caffeine stop somewhere like Southfield or Colebrook. 10 would be good.
How about 9:30 at the 44/179 commuter lot in Canton? This should give us enough time (hopefully) to miss any of the rain in the forecast. Sandy Brook with a stop at the Colebrook Store (I haven't been there yet) would be a good route. We can take a slightly longer route back if we want. Ride time should be about 3 hours and the pace reasonably social.

My next door neighbor might disagree. Look for Sam to be the topic of a "60 Minutes" exposé soon.
OK 9:30 at commuter lot. Colebrook store is nice. They are very friendly.
Hopefully someone else will show, for your sake, Sam. Otherwise you'll have to listen to me for 3 hrs.
I'm in. See you @ 9:30
Sandy brook sounds perfect.....and good choice of start. I will be there.

Phew! Thank you Eric and Jeff.
I'll be there too, so you won't feel compelled to go fast. I think Daniel is coming too. Maybe Wyatt as well.
I'll be there also. (Will pay handsomely for an end cap for a brake cable. I'll bring the crimping tool).

Sadly, this means you do not have enough bikes.
But I can't buy enough parts for the ones I have! (Hence the shout out for the assistance re: the end cap). For the record, no one brought me an end cap, so I had to do the whole ride with NO END CAP on my brake cable (boy did that slow me down) as did the extra weight of the CRIMPING TOOL in my jacket pocket. Glad I had that though, just in case someone needed crimped.
