We could do a ride on Saturday (predicted to be in the 50s!), and then everyone can come to the da 'hood later and watch the first week of Dakar highlights. I could cook something up and make a nice warm fire. Whadd'ya think?
What sort of ride? Small/big bike dirt, street? I need to know which shoes to wear!

Yeah, I figured most people would drive because bullets CAN penetrate Cordura.

So far I see jgormley and MATPOC for Dakar!

Big bike, easy dirt roads. Just to get out and about, maybe starting off Tucker Hollow? I haven't given it too much thought yet.

The only way to do the city justice is to do it on a scooter. I'd be happy to lend you one

I'd be up for that on Saturday, jgormley (joking 'bout the scoot). If others want to do a true BBDoR, by all means, do that.

Sounds spiffy. I'm thinking TKCs, the roads will be a bit wet and muddy.
