    Good ride, group and lunch stop. Thanks for coming out on a damp day. Wish the weather was better and we had a little less traffic but was still fun. Fog during the ride prevented seeing really good views so we try this one again at a later date...perhaps a longer 75 miler. :-)

      I think that the traffic may fall into the category of: "things out of our control". Good ride though, lunch definitely was tasty.

    Hey folks, my father came down with the flu or something and I need to watch him. Probably headed to the doctor. Sorry for the late cancellation. Have a great ride!

    I don't think I am going to join you guys. It is too far and I don't want to risk not being back on time as I need to be showered and ready to be at work at least by 4:45 . Sorry and enjoy !

    Hello Maurice,
    You Bum:) You must have the day off. I have to work that day. I hope you have a great ride. I did the whole Lake Norman Bicycle Route last summer while training for Cycle North Carolina. You are going to love the McDowell Creek Greenway. There are plenty of places to stop for a drink or snacks along the way on the LNBR. Take care. Tell everyone I said hello. May the winds be at your backs

      We should be back by 4 PM barring any mechanical issues. You may want to look up how long it take you to get to work from Huntersville. Please arrive early so we can leave promptly at 9AM.

    I am going to try and make this ride. I caught a cold over the holiday and my energy level is low, we'll see how it goes Tuesday, and if spin class goes OK and I have enough energy I'll join you guys Wednesday
