    I'm bringing two guest if that's ok?

    • Raymond

      Everyone is welcome Brenda! I'm sure Al & Gayle say the same. Make sure they bring helmets, water and extra tubes, etc. Plus I think you can either RSVP + 2 or have them RSVP individually. The RSVP is mostly because of the waiver statement for Brandee, plus give us a notice in advance in case if the group gets too big and needs additional volunteer to help. Brandee is not coming thou, we are just personal friends of her.

    I'll help sweep again. For those who are not familiar, basically I will always be the last one in the group and familiar with the route. If you got cut off by a traffic light, or coming up a hill and found everyone disappear and not sure where to go next, just stay at the spot and I will be catching up to you eventually and bring you to the next regrouping point. No need to rush pedaling forward and frantically trying to catch the front. Ahwatukee is a little tricky, few twists and turns in neighborhood and people can get lost easily. Once regroup, you can enjoy the company of riding with the rest of the group again.

      Sweep extraordinaire! You are so thoughtful and we appreciate all the help.

    • Raymond

      Gayle, it's team effort you know. Without Al mapping everything out in advance, paying attention to how the entire group goes thru intersections, and checking on my position at the back of the group constantly, it wouldn't have been working so well!
