Thanks to everyone who came out today....I had a great time! I think all told we had 10 riders....almost 11 but they wouldn't let him phone a friend. When all said and done Dorito and I did by my estimate about 330 miles and the Adventure turned over 80K miles today. Nice route work Dorito, definitely be doing this one again come summer! A lot of awesome homes out that way as usual and countless vineyards.

I am going to sleep good tonight...man am I ever tired!!!!

Had a great new track. It's like going to the amusement park early, and since there was nobody there you can just ride though on the roller coaster for another lap. Boy, did we find some tasty roads and have little annoyances in traffic to ruin our good fun.

I think Gastone should get one of these Tees, because that little one gallon tank ain't gonna get him too far away from Babe'



This was like a three stooges cartoon. It starts with needing to divert for gas, as Gastones gas light is on. Fair enough. About the time Gastone is leaving the pump, EOD3MC decides he's never found a gas pump he didn't like, so he gets a few gallons. Then he's nearly done pumping and Macorell wants some of the action. I guess the one out, one in policy was in effect!



Sorry about missing you a lunch Lakota. We ended up next door at the Market Salamander. We drove through Mburg at 1030, the Red Horse had an open sign. Too early for lunch, we galloped over to Lime Klin Rd to Fox Croft. We got back to town at 1115 and Red Horse was closed. We settled into the Market Salamander, and then I went back out to the bike 10 mins later. Yup, Red Horse was now open..

We had a fabulous stop late in the day at a Vineyard, as EOD3MC had to get Mommies Happy Juice refilled. Meanwhile, we lost Macorell



Retreating that he had been beat, Gastone and Macorell decided to think about it:


Even got the chicken stripes worn off J4S' new Anakee 3 tires:


MMmmm, nothing like ending a RTE with a RTE..


Overall a fabulous track, and one that I will keep for the file. I think it might be a nice summer ride too!

Thanks to the 9 Bikes and 10 riders that joined us today

And tomorrow??

Pretty sure the long loop will be ugly, but the short loop may not be too bad....

Any one ride Eagle Bay today?

Seems like from the EB List Serve email, some folks may have went out today. Trying to see if someone can give us a report. But, I may be game for a mid-day gallop.

Meghan and I had sushi there last night. Mmmmm sushi.

Speaking of which, afterwards we went to a comedy show here in town. Really nice space and we had a good time.

Linky: http://innattheoldesilkmill.com/Events.html

Anyone interested for a RTC (ride-to-comedy) on Feb 22? Of course for she and I it's more like a quick jaunt across the street.

Lemme know and I can order tickets. We can get them at 15% with a 'NOHECKLERS' coupon code. I have a feeling they'll sell out pretty quick...

It was great day for riding and seeing old friends! Thanks Dana for leading the charge. Bruce, it's great you're feeling better and back in the saddle!

I made it back to DC from Fredericksburg in 45 mins. Then it took almost two hours from crossing into DC to get to my place! All the roads were blocked off for the President's party and no one had a clear idea which streets were open and which were closed.... I'm locking all the doors and windows tomorrow and staying inside.

I'd be all over the RTC!

The only conflict is AnathemaRising needs to pick either another weekend or another month for his RTE.

Dave-O...I am apparently not moving so quick today. So unless I get some crap done in a hurry, I am probably not doing EB today. Will keep you posted?

Oops... not trying to step on any toes. Sorry about that.

I went ahead and purchased two tickets for Meghan and I. If anyone else would like to go, use the promo code NOHECKLERS for a 15% discount.

I don't think you've stepped on anyone's toes. Heck, I don't know if he's still planning on Feb or grabbing another month...

Paging AnathemaRising to the white courtesy telephone...
