I'm not familiar with this one & couldn't find any more info on the COG site.
What's the plan for this ride? Is it an overnight?

Which COG Site? It's on the Calendar of Events for February at: www.cog-online.org

The ride:

(VA) Breakfast & Ride
02/21/10 - We will meet at the Inwood Restaurant (540-832-3411) in Gordonsville, VA on Route 15, just north of the roundabout in Gordonsville, VA, at 9 AM Sunday morning 21 February 2010. A ride will follow, weather permitting. Hope for blue skies and clean roads; this is normally the coldest ride of the year. Got electrics?

I just followed the Google link to concourse.org. All makes sense now.

I've got heated gear and love the cold! (ok.. I don't love it.. I tolerate it well.)

If there are guys coming up from Hampton Roads area, I will definitely tag along!

Thanks for filling me in!

We're working on that.

Tommyhof, and maybe roger123, are probably coming.

Hope you can make it.

Yep, just got my NE COG news letter today (which was a nice reminder for the ride) and I'm IN weather permitting... Any idea where we are heading after b-fast?

Is anybody from Richmond interested in riding out to Gordonsville as a group? If so, how about meeting at the Gum Spring Dairy Queen (I-64 & Rte 522) say about 8:00 a.m.? Google calls it 37 minutes & 34.9 miles to Gordonsville from Gum Spring.

Damn, nice turnout. I had a 24 hour shift on Sat and there was no way I was going to be able to stay awake for this one.

Beautifull day here, got some much needed work done on my daughters car and spent some quality time in the garage daydreaming of retirement (or at least life after the Navy!!)!!!!

Had a nice chilly morning ride, but that's what electrics are for!

See how happy Jeremy is now that he has a heated vest...



Good turnout today, think it was about 15 folks total...





The Inwood Restaurant in Gordonsville had great/plentiful food and wonderful service...

I was so hungry that I got 1/2 way through before remembering to take some obligatory pics...





I think Tommy (looking at the camera on the left) was the distance winner today, coming all the way from the Suffolk area. And all
without ANY electric gear... Great job Tommy!



Mike's not much of an early bird, so he rolled in at 10:30 after we were all done with breakfast. Too bad I couldn't head up with you guys to HBN's cookout but hope to get there for the next one! Had a great day riding and catching up with folks, and meeting new ones!
