Sounds like fun, though. Wish I could make it.

That map is wrong! there's a 200 ft dip about mile 31 , so you'll have to crawl out of it.

Looks good. I wasn't gonna go 'cause I've got this fence to whitewash, and I love whitewashing a fence even more than riding a bike. But for some reason all the neighborhood kids have volunteered to do it for me.

So, I'll be there.

That's good! I was able to whitewash, flim flam, and hoodwink one of my manager friends to get away for the day!
Let's go get in trouble...

What time do you guys anticipate passing the Rancho Nicasio store -- probably around 10AM? I'd like to join, but would rather start in SF and meet you in Nicasio.

Also, do you have specific lunch plans for Petaluma? There's an Italian deli on Petaluma Blvd. called Tagliaferri's that has great sandwiches.

10am sounds about right. How about give me a call when you get to Rancho Nicasio 415-828-0467. If we're a little ahead we can wait up a bit at Cheese Factory or Visa Versa. That place in Petaluma sounds great, I was thinking that a deli would be perfect and then eat out in the park. Hope it works out for you.

Awesome dude, I could do one better and meet you between 8am 8:15 at the parking lot at the GGbridge by Levi Strauss and throw your bike on my rack so you can ride up with me... let me know.

Well, when you get done with that be sure and let Microsoft know!

That program says 32bit but it has Windows 3.1 looking toolbar buttons. And you need to install your critical updates to make your local IT person happy.

We will have to setup another group ride up in the north bay. It's been a while since I've been on a bike up there.

Engineering software always looks like it's from 15 years ago

This is the newest version.

Haha about the updates. I turned off the auto-updater because I usually lock my computer and hate finding it restarted when I come in to work in the AM

Looks like the "Italian Job" movie. Next time we have a BF ride make sure to program the traffic lights so we always have the green ones.
