    I have to be in Glenview in the morning, but hope to hit the trail when I get home. Maybe I will see you on the trail! Let's hope the rain stays away.....

    Seriously bummed, but I cannot make this ride in the morning. Hope the weather holds out for the rest of you!

    Speed? I know the trail, and distance is ok. "Advanced" qualifications for this ride, without a bit more specifics, scare me :)

    This is one of my regular rides, except opposite direction. I'm a maybe, but if I can do it, I'll ride up there to meet you and ride back down with the group.

    would your rolling speeds be between 12 and 15 mph where applicable? This would probably give an average speed of 13 mph.

    Pace? Since "intermediate to advance riders" is specified, want to make sure I know what I'm getting myself into :-) Anything in particular I should be aware of?
