July Fourth Ride Update

Last week I asked you to share with me some possible routes for our Fourth of July ride.  I received far more suggestions that I anticipated.  I also received far more people trying to lock-in their participation than I thought I’d ever see.  Thank you on both counts!

Unless there are a lot of objections, I’d like to propose that we take Ross up on his offer to serve as our tour guide in parts of New England.  The areas of specific interest will be those that dovetail with the founding of this nation.  He mapped out an inticate route that should allow us to visit many of the key sites in his part of the country that we will recall from our history classes.

I also need people to contact me as volunteers to help get everything in place for the upcoming ride.  This time around, I’m going to pass along your contact information to Michelle.  She’s graciously agreed to coordinate the logistical nightmare required to have this  ride go as smooth as glass.  If you’d prefer that I not pass along your contact info to her, please let me know so that I can honor your request.

In what could be the start of a new tradition, we’re going to offer 1-, 2-, or 3-day options of the Fourth of July ride.  You can pick whatever works best for you and your schedule.  We won’t be able to have people sign up for the 1-day ride, and then have new people join as for a 1-day ride or a 2-day ride.  At some point in the future, we might have the wherewithal to make that happen; but, for now, we’ll start with everyone who signed up and then the number of participants will decrease as they have to return to work, keep previous commitments, or leave the group for any other reason.

If you’d like to share your thoughts on this, or anything else, please contact me.

As always, thanks for your continued support!
