Palm Springs. I know that is a bit farther than Hogan but he is joining me in the "twilight years" club and we don't have much time left. It was 106 degrees when we went last March. Is that hot enough for you? But I doubt it will be that warm in early February.

It's on for Feb. 5th!

The ride is on for Sunday February 5th and MTBBill will be leading us. But be advised that this is an all day and fairly challenging point to point ride with no early bailouts. And it will require quite a bit of logistics. So no wafflers. If you are seriously interested please respond in the SoCal forum:

I had the same idea to get away from the weather. It sounds like a great place to ride and relax. My research yielded a story or two about some particularly nasty thorns near the end of the ride I think. Bring Stan's,slime, extra tubes etc.

Dan'ger and I rode the area a couple weeks ago. You'll have a great ride if you go. I'd like to go but won't know for sure 'till it gets closer.

50 years old? Geesh...... I'll never be that old(again):D

I'm comin down from the Bay Area, but am flyin solo (my buddy flaked out). Anyone want to share the trip? Split gas/lodging/etc? I can drive, and fit up to 3 more people comfortably. Or I can just ride along and share the costs.

Someone take me up on this offer, cuz it'll be too expensive to go solo. And I wanna go.

Brad if you have one more space I am down. And be more than happy to split anything, even beer! Let me know I got it off.

This ride do-able if we can do a 30 miler out in annadell or a nice 25 miler in Marin, up Mt. Tam down Mt. Tam and back up?

I know the weather will be a LOT different.

the request is in, there arent many requests for those days so im pretty much garunteed in

brad has space for 4 comforatbly in the car (dont know how many bikes his rack holds) so if my friend razi goes you are still in baycat but thats up to brad. He was talking about leaving the yay area on saturday, and coming back either sun night after the right or monday. My only contigency is that monday = lincolns day, but the calendar in my house says lincolns day is on sunday, and the academic calendar says holidays feb 12 so im hoping thats a freakin misprint and we got feb 13 off.

Reminder

Just a reminder that this is a self-shuttled ride and if everybody shows up with a full vehicle we can't shuttle. There needs to be some empty seats and bike space in each vehicle. Hopefully since only a few of us are coming from up north the southern guys will give us a break on this.
