    Tim, as I stated at the beginning of the ride my average pace was going to be 15-16 mph, if anyone wanted to ride at a faster pace, have at it. I ended up at my stated pace as did others.

      The subtleties can be missed when your talking to the kids :)

      I'm with you Kane, "non-carpenter"­? You must be an analytical type, like me ;)

    Craig and I are going ride out from our place and meet you on the route (probably around Rocklin Road) and then split off on the way back too. We have to be somewhere in the afternoon

    Kane: The Carpenters were an American vocal and instrumental duo, consisting of siblings Karen and Richard Carpenter. Though often referred to by the public as The Carpenters, the duo's official name on authorized recordings and press materials is simply "Carpenters".During a period in the 1970s when louder and wilder rock was in great demand, Richard and Karen produced a distinctively soft musical style that made them among the best-selling music artists of all time.

      I get the analogy now. Carpenters are BK (before Kane)

      but not BA before Alan. The kids these days.

    Javier my arrival and ride will be depending on weather, as will everyone else. I may have clients that will need my time. But I could work with them in the afternoon. Do you know finish time perhaps? Look forward to seeing everyone again!

      Hard to say *for sure* but I'd guess no later than 1 pm with the trailhead stop included.
