There simply must be a ride that day. It's pi day. Without pi, our wheels would not be round.

I forgot you had tentatively set that ride up. If I can get out there then it's a big yes!

Hey, don't forget I have a standing offer for a spend the night before. Oh, you could probably catch the train to Sac and then light rail out to here. Or, I could pick you up at the train station.

I am beyond excited to get back on my mountain bike this weekend. I'm going to ride with a friend I haven't ridden with for almost two full months, which is not cool, since we usually ride every weekend. I'm really looking forward to the fresh air, blue skies and tacky singletrack

My mountain bike is jealous of my road bikes... and I am jealous of you! It's nothing but road biking for me for the next several weeks. Maybe that's why I am so excited about Prairie City.

"pi" day, you say? How about this - we start at the Park n' Ride at Bollinger and 680, ride a 45 or so mile loop, and return. Said Park n' Ride is right across the lot from Marie Calendars, which serves....... drum roll please.......


PIE!!!

I'll be in Solvang riding the year's first imperial century (I already have two metrics under my belt, one tandem and one on the half-bike). I'll be trading pulls with LanceOldstrong and perhaps some of my SoCal buds.

Y'all have fun!

You gotta spend an extra day in LA and do Fargo Hill ... or at least watch it.

Hmm. Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

Add more details and I may just show. And I may even skip the Diablo prologue and make it on time.

This weekend I have two reasons why I want to ride:
1. Its my birthday
2. Hopefully I will have my new bike
We can all have pi(e) and not feel guilty, it would be rude to say no to dessert!!!

Hey Joel, I have to be back too early for work related issues on Saturday, so I'm staying local.
I might end up doing Morgan Territories and first part of Diablo. Things are really blooming over there, do time for a Photo trip. I did it last year around this time and It was great.

We could hitch our wagons to the Morgan Territory ride, or do something different. I was thinking up/over Norris to Crow Cyn, over to Redwood Road, loop through Moraga and back to Bollinger/680 and Marie Calendar's for pie. About 45 or so miles and maybe 3000' of climbing.

Morgan territory might be fun, though - except that I would probably not do the Diablo part but instead head for home down Camino Tassajara/Sycamore.

Hmm, I've actually never done Morgan Territory or South Gate, so I may have to think about that one.

John, keep us updated on the meeting time and place. If I can get away this weekend, I will join you. Not saying I am at your level but I have a better chance of keeping up with you than with the other guys.
