Lancaster, PA Coverd Bridge Ride - '08

Edit: Sunday August 17th.

We had a few Clydes last year. Be good to see everyone again plus some new faces this year. Those who spent most of last year in the SAG wagon are particularly welcome!

Details and link to ride website are in the northeast regional forum:

2008 Lancaster Covered Bridge Metric

Regards,

Tom

Yes, I had two of those Clydes with me last year as house guests. One fell and hurt himself the night before, and the other SAGged after five miles. Better luck this year.

I'll be there, likely with a couple of buds. A truly fabulous ride.

We need to get the meet-up lined up better...never linked up with you guys last year.

I plan to be there... I also plan to get further than the lunch stop, which was my finish line 2 years ago when I rode.

I'm not sure I have the stamina for a 100K ride... but I'll work at it this spring/summer. Can I chicken out at the last minute and ride the 50K if I'm not up to 100K?
