I am rarely in this part of BF. I am usually in the road section, although I dom't like to think of myself as a typical obnoxious roadie:p :D . I am wondering if any of you are going to be riding the Lancaster Covered Bridges Ride. I am looking to hook up with someone for a ride out there. I am in the South Jersey / Philly area and can easily get to Philly or Central NJ (even NYC if necessary) to meet. I will gladly cover travel, fuel costs, etc. I would love it if anyone can help me out. This is my first year having weekends off so I can do this ride and meet some of the BF gang.
Cheers and Thanks,

I do hope you can make it. It it shaping up to be the "must see" BF event this year. Arguably...

Sounds like it is going to be a great ride. Bumping this thread so hopefully baj32161 can secure a ride.

Hey Brian, Is Greyhound or Amtrak an option to get out to Lancaster? It's not as much fun as a road trip w/ another BFer, but it's always an option.
I could probably pick you up along the way. I'm going to check how I get down there and see where the closest spot would be to hitch on. I'm already coming from Massachusetts, so what's a few minutes gonna mean? First I have to make sure that I'm registered! Let me get back to you on this.
