That sounds like fun Den, I think I will try to take on the Sunday ride. Are you doing one or the other or both?
Can you pre register? I'll check out the website, it might answer that question for me.

Hey Dan, good to hear from you

It's a very fun ride indeed! I plan to do the Sunday ride as well. That 7000' of climbing on Saturday might be more than I'm willing to take on this early in the season. I think you'll find the CRC folks some of the friendliest, you'll ever have the pleasure of riding with. I should know, I'm a regular member now for 3 years.
No pre registering required for this ride. We get a large amount of riders, but we never have a problem getting em' all signed up before the ride starts. Kelly, our club president is usually behind the registration table, so the ride doesn't start until he says it does. We usually roll out within 5 minutes of the 9:00am start time.
I look forward to seeing you there.

Denny

P.S. I'm debating on wether to start a Pedal Pittsburgh thread on here. Didn't seem to draw to much attention the last couple times I posted it here. Ped Pitt is May 18th in case you might be planning on doing that.

I think you should post this in the Southeast forum, too. There are likely some Virginia folks who would be interested. I'd be interested, but I'll be out of the country. Sounds like fun, though.

Sounds like a great idea. Thanks for the suggestion tulip. For some reason my brain always thinks VA is a lot further south than WV. Meantime, a lot of it is just east of it (hence the name West Virginia).

P.S. I also added Great Lakes regional for the folks in Ohio.
