    I just did this ride this past Wed and because we had no shuttlers (everyone did the long ride) we started at Wallace Brooks Park, rode north to Gulf Junction TH, and then south back to the Park. It was a great ride, but the only downside was that the second half of the ride was facing the sun the whole way.
    If we end up with no shuttlers and everyone doing the long ride again, I'd like to propose that we meet at the Gulf Junction TH so that we start and end there and not have the afternoon sun in our faces (morning sun isn't so bad). It we do have shuttlers than, no worries, we start at Gulf Junction anyway.
    So could everyone please either message me directly or add a comment here letting me know whether you will be doing the short or the long ride?
    Thanks!
    (P.S Elizabeth - please let me know if you can think of any logistical issues with this approach)

      Ok, everyone doing the long ride can meet directly at the Gulf Junction Trailhead at 9:15. That is about the time I will be arriving there with those doing the short ride who will still meet at Wallace Brooks Park at 8:30 (accounting for driving and organization time). I can handle up to 3 shuttler's - so we should be good on that front.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
