Looks like some clear and crisp weather is in the forecast for tomorrow. I'm in for a ride 6:00am OBH. I'll cobble a route together and post again later this evening (unless someone else beats me to it!).

I'm in. Can we aim for a good workout, say along this five-hills ride (i.e., Tolmie, Cedar, Peacock, Summit, and Beacon)? Take note, that I'm not suggesting we come all the way back on Cook, I just ran out of energy with plot-a-route.

We miss you Rolfie, please heal quickly.

JT, I love it when you try to inflict pain on others. I'm in!

Not to criticize but I had a little fun re-tracing your route. I see your potatoes and raise you some cheese curd and gravy!

Thanks for the ride this morning, Folks. That was would good fun.

Now, Ron. I know you love your high-tech Garmin navigation system, but don't be surprised seeing me with a baseball bat on our next ride,

That said, I am a bit old school,

p.s. Sorry we missed you this morning, Steve L., but looking forward to seeing you on future rides.

Easy now, I've dubbed it the "ROLF 3000" for a reason. It's meant to be an upgrade on the old carbon version, which crashed too frequently.

Easy, Johnny: a small diversion on Plymouth instead of staying on Kendall to the reservoir footpath; barely missing the Doncaster footpath; and nearly ending up on the greens in the northwest corner of the CH golf course, are hardly grounds for violence.

And Ronny: just learn the turns and leave the Garmin-crutch at home. :D But if you have to bring it, name it after Alan Crashels instead.

Gee whiz.. it feels just like I was on this ride, only I got more sleep! 8)
