    Wish we could have done another 4000ft climbing and it was a bit cold starting as early as we did. A noon start would have been a bit warmer.

    Hey Susie, I'm going and I'm definitely a B rider. I'm bringing a friend to that will ride with me at a B pace. Hope to see you there -- it's soooo early, for a good reason. But getting up on time will be the hardest thing.

    Hi Kell, I changed my rsvp to a "no", I need to see if any more "B" riders will show up. I haven't been on the bike in 2 weeks and my +1 had to bail, so, I'm a maybe! :-)
