Hey Everyone, Once again I am planning to do the AMC Bike Rally along with a few friends and I thought there might be some others in this group interested in doing it too, so I'm posting it here:

My goal is to do the 50 mile ride but I may do 27 miles instead. You don't have to decide til that day. Even if we don't ride together perhaps we can do some socializing together afterwards as a group. Happy Hour starts at 4pm, and it's a BYOB, so don't forget your refreshments ;-) I ride for Happy Hour!!!

Should be a blast. The cost of the ride is $5 and if you wish to stay for dinner it is $25 now, after May 1st it goes up to $30. If you are only doing the ride just show up with your $5.

Here is the link to sign up for the ride and dinner:
