8:45am meetup for a 9:00am SHARP rollout

Join me for a post thanksgiving day ride to burn some of them xgiving calories off. For those of you like me that will have WAY overeaten on Thursday, remember proper barfing etiquette is to pull off line to the left and call out "barfing left". 

In order to not send our bodies into to much shock after all the eating on Thursday we will be stopping at newcastle Deli for a mid ride snack.

Meet at north-east corner of the Raley's parking lot, opposite side from Starbucks closest to the road -- the area highlighted in red here:

      Oh... I thought, depending on the wind, you were to go left of right. I didn't know you were such a left winger :)
