Weather for tomorrow is looking a bit on the chilly side in the morning - you might want to bring an extra layer just in case.

My knee rehab is coming along well - I’m still planning to ride but if my knee starts acting up I may have to cut my participation short, hoping to still be able to go the distance...

Larry, I’m planning on coming & might bring a friend. I’ll let you know; I’m not super fast, but I’ve done rides this long.

Awesome Stephanie - the more, the merrier! My knee rehab is coming along slowly but surely, hoping to be able to do at least part of this ride this Saturday!

Would anyone be OK with moving it ahead a little to 9:30 AM?

One more thing Stephanie - I’m not a fast rider myself so no worries, any group ride I host is a no-drop group, so no one will get dropped for going too slowly...

Are we doing 9:30? It works for me ... not sure if I can keep up a constant 12-14 mph, but I have done 64 miles before ... definitely want to stop at the Sparrow for a quick hot drink if it’s cold it.

Hi Stephanie, I haven’t heard any objections to 9:30 AM, so we can meet at that time, we’ll roll around 9:45 AM in case anyone else wants to join. It is gonna be a bit chilly so you might also want to bring an extra layer just in case, and I might need a good cup of hot cocoa - assuming HCS sells it...
