ok then I'm in, but I'll have to get there early enough to register since online reg is closed. Oh, and the reason I decided to go regardless of the wife: She said she's hoping to go on a business trip to Europe without me, so I shouldn't feel guilty about going to Solvang without her!

Oh, and when/where is our official meeting place? I'm sure it's in one of the pages back there, but if someone wants to repost it, I won't have to search around after my next class ends.

Oh, and by the way, I haven't registered either. I'm procrastinating as well since it could (gasp) rain. But I'm definitely in (if it rains, I ditch and go wine tasting for anyone who wants to join ). I'll PM those who don't have it, my cell number. The morning of, I'm going to stand at the first entrance (by the driveway) with a permi-grin. You guys will not be able to miss me. And I have attending:

i'm a procrastinator when it comes to registering for rides, too.... if the ride "allows" it! the only ones i sign up for immediately are the sell out ones (i.e. breathless agony, ride around the bear!) or the ones with ridiculous later registerer fees (stagecoach).....

I registered online yesterday before the cut-off the registration. I was thinking about being a pirate, but if I did that I knew Caligurl would nor respect me. I will be there riding with several friends from Santa Clarita & Frazier Park, we ride the route a little different.

The first 12 miles or so are an out and back through Solvang, it has a nice little climb. With everybody in the morning climbing and descending it can get a little crazy. We skip that part and ride the rest of the metric and when we get back to Solvang we then finish up with the section we skipped in the morning.

PM me your cell #

ok I can either hop in Scoot's pickup, or if there's more than 4 I have a sedan with a 2 bike roof rack. If even more people want to carpool, bring Yakima trays or a trunk rack that fits over a spoiler.

so far i think there may be just the three of us....but we shall see....are you vertically challenged like myself? the only reason i ask is that to get gour adults into the truck can be tight...if only one person sits in the back they get to lounge though....its one of those mini crewcab nissans...not too big, not too small...

Yippee! Carpool. This is going to be so much fun. I'm really a chipper morning person. I whistle, sing, clap and just generally am really loud. Stuff a McDonald's Egg McMuffin in my mouth and this will be avoided.
