However, looking at the weather, there is probably a window for a 200k on Saturday.
Lumberton, NC -- it never snows there -- almost never.
2 perms -- 1 flat, 1 has some climbing (but Happy Valley residents would likely not even notice).
1 pop -- flat.
U could get your monthly R and P rides in one weekend.

Some Ohioans did the R & P thing -- and maybe made a trip to the beach afterward.
A couple others have done just their R-ride.

Just be sure to contact the route owner with sufficient time for U to mail the route-owner the signed waiver BEFORE the ride / BEFORE he will send soft-copy cards and cues.
