weekday vs. weekend?
looks like you've got weekdays by design (tues/weds?)...
i don't mind taking vacation time to ride, but here's something to consider: august isn't so great for students or those of us who work in education, as it is the beginning of the school year.
so my vote would be for a weekend in august (or any month frankly), or late september if during the week.
(thanks for the legwork)
