Future Clydesdale Ride?

Seeing the pics of the great ride in CO go me thinking...If there was going to be a ride for Clydesdales, where would it be? West Coast, East Cost, South? I would love to meet some of my fellow Cydesdales. What about yall?

I think it would be fun to get together. Since I am in the South, something in the midwest or up towards NY seems like fun to me. Or yall can come down here! How about a two day 150 for one of the groups like MS?

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Well, MW would work best for me, for example.

Maybe you could find a nice spot in the Himalayas where it is downhill for 100 miles...

Lots of good flat land in Florida, Texas Gulf Coast, etc. There's a couple of rides in the Baytown area in Texas that should be mostly flat.

Pacific Coast Highway north of SF, or get BRAN (Bike Ride Across Nebraska) to sponsor a CRAN (Clyde Ride Across Nebraska).
