    Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! I'm all set to go. Hopefully I can save up to buy the recumbent by July. I am not sure if I will go on the whole ride or just a few days, like last year. I am still in negotiations with a couple of friends as I am finding most people wouldn't voluntarily ride a bike for 7 solid days. Who would've thought?

    I'm planning to do the GRABAAWR ride (Ride along the Wisconsin River) the last week of June. Since I'm too big of a wimp to ride in the cold and slippery I guess I'll start training in April. I would like to do the Ride the Rockies, but getting out there and back is too big of a hassle. Then again, once they announce the route next month I might change my mind.

    Sounds good. With all of your touring experience I'd love to get to get to talk to you for a while. What should I look for, a rider with whiskers and a tail fin?

    I am also doing the ride. I am rider number 567. This will be my first tour ride longer than 150 miles. Maybe we can hook up sometime before the ride.
