Sounds good.  

If not this ride then hopefully another!  I teach Spin early Sat am so I am game almost any weekend except Sat's before 11.

TOm,

Yes, this is a road ride. 68 miles or 40 miles, depending on the preference of the attendees. We may split the group in two.
Rain cancels. So far, the forecast doesn't look that good. I will post a final status Saturday night.

Cheers

Hernan

Sounds like a fun ride.  Road bikes I assume?  Just want to make sure  
I have time to prep my ride the night before. Been a while since I
have had a chance to get outside and ride. I teach spin class 3 times
a week and really miss getting out. I'll give a call Sun am about
7:30 to make sure we are still on, unless there's a better way? If we
don't ride I'll just go running with some friends in the am.
