Mojavemutt can't make the Oct 7 ride. He is thinking sometime Nov to regroup.
I had conflicting ride opportunities so I'll jump on my back up plan.
The following weekend Oct 13-14 my ride group will be at Stoddard. Some of us camping for the weekend. Mixed crowd with all sorts of riding apparatus. All are welcome at these meet, greet and rides. Bring the wife for the weekend... or just come Saturday AM for a bike only ride. Nothing epic. Bring a plate for a fun flowing 65-70 mile ride.
