Hi folks,

I just off the phone with Hans and he filled me in on the vittles he was planning for the post ride meal. Yummy!!! :)

I have a vague idea how many people might attend but I would like to get a little better idea so Hans can plan accordingly.

So please shout out if you are going to be coming down to join us on the 25th for a fun ride and great food.



Thanks,
William

Cool, though a few more folks had indicated they were coming. You can PM me as well if you like. We're just trying to get a more concrete number for food purposes.

Nice, so far it's looking like we'll have upwards of 15 people so it will be a good turn out. :cool:

Now, I hate to say it but AR made me promise not to wear my silver Rapha shorts. I know, I know....a lot of you will be disappointed. But hey, AR controls the flow of that fine leather wrap so......sorry. :rolleyes: :D But, just in case some of you need a fix.....or want to go temporarily blind.....(view at your own risk :D ):

A donation would be helpful to cover food but no one will be twisting arms. If you like, bring a six (or whatever) of a good local beverage to add to the community cooler.

If you need directions PM me and I'll get them to you. Looking forward to seeing y'all!

I will need directions to your place. Looks like I will be coming over on the MassPike, then south on 146 to Providence. Can you PM them to me along with your phoine numbers in case I get lost in route?

Also, are there any plans afoot to watch the Venbtoux Stage of the Tour at your place after the ride?

You have mail. :)


Weather permitting, I'm going to see if I can get something out to the fun area. I need to find a cable long enough though.

This real life stuff is for the birds,

but without it yes there would be more time for cycling, but nothing to fund the cycling.

So I guess I will keep the job and work this weekend. Not that it is in a bad environment, the mountains of VT. If it rains up here I will be really upset.

All those at the Ramble, have a great time. Hope to see you soon and anyone up for a fall ride up here in the north country?

Big guy, It doesn't look good for me I had planned to call in sick for work and ride my Hors,but, my LBS couldn't get to my frame so I have a cool frame and a box of parts. My other bikes seem to be giving me fits riding due to my accident and resultant loss of flexibility. The Allez has been uncofortable and now seems way too long ,Spectrum beam is tolerable but the bars seem a bit too low,might be able to compromise with that somewhat. Is the weather going to comply or are you rescheduling?

Hey Bro,

The weather is supposed to be good so that's a plus. The Spectrum would be a good choice for you. I'm sure we can tweak it. We'll let Ti have a crack at it for you. It should be good. I hope you can make it. Neil says he's going to show so it would be like old times. :)


Take care bro,

Sure sounds like a great time will be had. Good food, nice people, watching the TDF and even a bike ride!

I am jealous, we never seem to get it together enough out here to throw our own Forum get together...

Just sayin'

PS: Hope you all have a great time! I will be thinking of you all as I roll down PCH towards Malibu with a group of my riding buddies.

I am stuck waiting for my bank to open at 8:30 to do a quick, very important transaction and will be on the road right after. My nav system says 2 hours for trip time so it will be close but I should make it.

I'm not one of the more vocal members here, but I'd definitely be interested in coming if it's OK (and dates work out, etc.). I promised myself I'd join more group rides this year, and I'd love to meet some of you guys. Hopefully, there would be a <ahem> slower group...
