    We stayed at the Caravan Inn in Glenwood Springs, CO

    Comments. Our first ride. There were some disagreements regarding a "ride" as we were not associated with any other ride. A great variance in expectations, time to start rides, etc. But, overall, a success.

    Represented:
    LA area, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, Nebraska and Denver

    2nd Annual Ride:
    From miss kenton

    Date:
    June 13, 2010
    Organizer:
    tsl
    Location
    :
    Watkins Glen, Finger Lakes, New York
    Screen Names:
    tsl
    Louis
    Bev
    John
    Dick
    seenoweevil
    Jim from Boston (get well, Jim!)
    Miss Kenton
    Miss Kenton's hubby, Tom
    Ken Brown
    Wayne (Ken Brown's buddy)
    and I think, Groth
    I apologize if I've left anyone out.

    Some of us camped at the home base of the ride.
    Some of the less brave/earthy of us stayed in motels.
    I believe the rides ranged from 40-80 miles.
    The scenery was beautiful and the weather was gorgeous.
    We joined a bigger ride; The Southern Tier Bicycle Club's 30th Annual GFLBT.
    They had secured the use of a large club house on the campground where we all met up for meals and socializing.
    It was very well organized.
    I had a fantastic time and would be happy to participate in that ride again.

    Denver, thanks for pulling this together. My recollection is as follows, and I think it's complete:

    Date: July 9, 2011

    Location: Chelsea, MI start/finish point.

    A part of the: One Helluva Ride sponsored by the Ann Arbor Bicycle Touring Society

    Organized by: Road Fan

    participants:
    Road Fan
    Irwin7634 (Marc Irwin)
    Jim from Boston
    rtool
    John
    Freedomrider
    Blazing Pedals
    Friend of Blazing Pedals (non-Forum) on a snakey NoCom recumbent - ZOOM!
    Old Fat Guy met us for the Friday ride.
    Mrs. Road Fan met us for ice cream.

    and perhaps 1500 SE Michigan cyclists who are not Forum members.

    Irwin, Jim from Boston, Freedomrider, rtool, and John camped in a nearby Michigan campground. OFG, Road Fan, Blazing Pedals and Friend of Blazing Pedals live local to the ride, and drove up DOE. Thursday night I met the out of towners for a burger and beer in Chelsea, Friday morning we met for breakfast at Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor, we went for a ride to Chelsea and back to Ann Arbor (about 42 miles), then met the next morning for the OHR. We did not all begin the ride together, but I saw almost everyone at the end.

    Thanks again to all!

    Irwin, Freedomrider, Mrs. Freedomrider, Mrs. Road Fan, Road Fan, and Blazing Pedals are planning to get together for this ride again this year, 7/14/2012.
