Is that a fancy way of saying group ride on Monday Anne? :wink:

Sounds good to me! What time were you thinking?

Um, yes it is. Let's do it. Monday night ride. It's been way too long
How about 5:30 @Riverbend?
I can do earlier but know it's not "after work" then.

Sounds good to me. Lets put the word out! Hopefully Don and his busted arm will be up for this too. If not he can always drop off fuzz nuts to go for a ride with us. :wink:

Cool. I posted it up in the ride announcements forum as well. How's the arm feeling?

More of a neck/shoulder thing. I think I'm going to need some therapy. Going to Dr next week

Overdrive, thanks for the directions. I rode today and they made perfect sense on the trail. I actually felt less lost overall than usual despite the fallen leaves. It seemed that I spotted more arrows than usual.

The trail had a couple slippery spots but was overall in good condition -- at least in sections 1-10 which is all I had time for today.

Hopefully it'll quit raining before it starts snowing...

Just finished a ride out there, trail is in great shape, despite lots of leaves down. Was riding in the dark at the end, on Swamp Thing, and suddenly I was hearing a LOT of crunching under the wheels - turns out I was off the trail entirely! Hard to tell with all the leaves and the darkness.

They had some kind of Halloween 5K run just before dark, the trails were marked with lit lanterns, little ghost thingies hung from trees, and a boom box was blaring Thriller at the Riverbend lot! Looked like fun ...

Ahhh, was wondering what that was about. They missed a few things here and there. Made for an interesting night ride with stuff glowing around me, other than eyeballs!

Snow and rain free would be a bonus. Not sure I can make a ride this coming Monday. Hoping it's still good riding for Tuesday eve.
