    Awesome ride (as usual)! Great scenery, nice folks and good food. Unbelievably, the rain also held off for the duration of the ride =) The ICU does have some steep hills - I'd love to do this ride again later in the season ;)

    I've been keeping an eye the weather - I'm probably not going to ride if it turns out to be heavy rain in the AM. Keeping the fingers crossed that it somehow misses us!

    John, hope you had a nice trip - I'll give you a ring at the start if it looks like a "go".

    Hey John and Lee, looks like I can't make it to the Quad. I just found out my god daughter has her first communion that day. I have to be there for that. Anyhow, I hope you guys have a good ride. Good food at the finish there. ; )
