I asked for the mods to delete it because it had turned into a Foo thread, which was not my intent .

Anyway, Mr. East Hill and I will be there for the ride, and we will be doing the 40 mile Classic Ride.

And we're going to win the raffle .

So far: cantdrv55, dauphin, Mrs. dauphin, me, Mr. East Hill, bigbossman, Mrs. bigbossman, Ms. bigbossman, jobob, and the Red Riders if I remember correctly. Mhendricks is mulling it over...

Nope, the RRs are holding out for the Wildflower. Sorry we're going to miss you good people.

Anyone in for the Wildflower? Oh, should I start another thread then?

Chico is 4/22, I think ... Creston is the following week, but registration for that was closed, 9 hours after it opened. There was some serious ballot stuffing going on

Hey dpb13,

I go to Reno/Sparks a lot for work. Maybe we can ride together there sometime. I'm usually there for two/three nights at a time.

Hope to meet you at Bike the Buttes. I'll be on a REI Novara road bike.

cantdrv55-Sounds good to me. I'll be the big guy on the Specialized Allez Elite. BTW, if you are looking to ride around here, and people to do it with you might want to check out (if you haven't already) the Procrastinating Pedalers (www.pedalers.org). They usually have after work rides on Wed. and Thurs. with Wed. being a "paceline" training and Thurs being a "show and go".

Hope to see you soon.

BTW, a bit off topic, but is anybody doing the Lodi Sunrise in May? I'm taking a crack at my 1st century.

I haven't quite formalised my start time, but 0800 sounds good. Too bad I'm going to miss the RRs and Jobob--darn!

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where a good meeting place would be so us BF and TE members can all meet and greet? Before? After?

East Hill-My first time down there so I don't know my way around. Like I said, I am heading down Friday (staying at the Best Western). I plan on driving out to the start and maybe doing a little ride on Friday afternoon, so perhaps I can find some kind of meeting spot then. Personally before works better for me, because I have to leave pretty quickly after the ride to head up to Redding to see my son.

My wife and I are driving up from the bay area in the AM (in a silver Dodge Caravan). We plan to leave at 0600 so we can be there in plenty of time before 0800. Maybe we can just meet up at the registration site unless dpb13 can find a more convenient place. I'm the only one riding. Wifey is there for moral support since this is my first organized and long ride (40 miles is very long for me).

I'm going to be heading over to the Best Western to meet bigbossman and get my ride from him! I think he said he'd be there after 10.00 pm on Friday night. My husband's mum lives about a mile and a half away from the Best Western.

So, it sounds as if I can at least meet dpb13 and the bigbossman family before the ride on Friday.



Have to figure out something for everyone else...

I'll be traveling with a wife and a young daughter (read - I'll be outnumbered and subject to veto by two women), so all estimated times are approximate. I just drive the bus, man, I can't make 'em move any faster than they feel like at any given time...

That being said - I will be arriving Friday night "sometime", and will be staying at the Best Western. We are not signed up for the ride, and will be registering on the day of. So, the registration place would be best for me to meet everyone before the ride. It is hard to miss - it is a big hall-type meeting building sitting diagonally on a corner lot. I'll have my cell with me, and at least one of you has that number....

8:AM sounds good to me. Caveat - right now, the extended forecast is calling for mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain. If it's crappy out, I won't have much luck rousting the girls out of the rack. I'll still ride if they don't, assuming the weather isn't a total loss.

I'm on the fence about whether to do the 40 or the 100. I'll probably go with the crowd - I wanna be doing what all the cool kids are doing.....

I'm planning on heading up there in the morning. I'll be doing the 40. I'll have to register so I should be getting there about 7am.

So, I'll meet bigbossman and perhaps dpb13 on Friday evening at the BW? Sounds as if I'll have to look for the rest of us at the registration site. Perhaps I need to make a sign--

Bike Forums/Team Estrogen MEET HERE!

So if you see some short redhead walking around with sign--
