    I only put 3 dates up there, and I can make all 3 of those for sure.

    Does a Sunday work better for y'all?

    Checking back over my calendar, the 12th may actually be doable. We should be coming back into town late on the 11th.

    Are we looking to camp forsure?

    let me know what bikes you guys ride, I'm gonna add it to the first post.

    I feel like the more we maintain and use this thread then the more we will get out and ride, I definitely want to be more consistent in my riding.
