Is anyone going to be riding any of these?
Are there any in the NJ area that I should be riding?

I'm not a racer, but do certainly enjoy the challenge and looking forward to this year more than I have in many years.

Wrong side of the continent for me... I'm signed up for STP, and the wife is beating on me to sign the both of us up for Petal Pedal century, but I'm kind of hoping we can't get anyone to watch the kids... it's expensive and I'm just not really into riding a century with no chance for glory at the finish line... even there's even a finish line? I'm sure there's a finish line. BUT... the wife says they feed you a ton of free food and beer, so there's that.

No firm plans yet for dates, but a couple ride ideas.

Noteworthy Solo Efforts:

Groton to Groton Ride (Groton, VT to Groton, NH) [I grew up in Groton, MA]
Ride Across New Hampshire (Likely from Fairlee, VT to Fryeburg, ME)


Potential Organized Rides:
D2R2
Kearsarge Klassic

@MattTuck - the D2R2 has been calling to me. I'd love to do it!!

Michigan Mountain Mayhem and the MOST Tour in June. Possibly ODRAM too. May sprinkle in an MTB race or two too. Also likely to do the free group rides on the summer holidays put on by Rock and Road bike shop in Grand Haven.

The only two rides I'm registered for already are Raid Rockingham and Raid Lamoille. Looks like I'll miss D2R2 again this year due to work travel... So I'll probably do the F2G2 or whatever it's called. Plus I was thinking about the granFundo... But I'm not convinced it is ever going to stop snowing here.

You're going to be busy and in shape. I have a similar list without the Brevets and no Dirty 40. See you out there, Cheers to a great season

These are the tentatives anyway. Got to take advantage of those precious few weeks of summer around here.

I'm riding in Humboldt County with my son for a few days, doing a Fondo in St. Louis in May, riding for 4 days in western Wisconsin in June . . . All gearing up for a week in the Dolomite mountains in late Summer . . . It'll be quite a year if it doesn't kill me.
