Damn you Yankees for switching the date on me while I respite from winter on a sunny coastal Georgia Island! Just for changing it I'll put up some pictures just to rub it in because I know there's still plenty of snow back there in New England--- especially Maine where @top506 hangs his wrenches. Can't make the 27th--- I'll be back in the south--- this time on the FL panhandle!

Sharon and I cannot make the 27th. We a music practice that cannot be rescheduled. We may ride on the 20th anyway, make the CCRT ride be a 2-part-er.

Or--- we could meet closer to both our homes and figure out a good alternative April 20th ride?

I don't know about any loops (though I did walk around in a circle at 1:59 yesterday, March 14). Regardless of loops, weather and any unpredictable event not preventing it, we will ride the CCRT on Saturday April 20. Sharon has really been looking forward to it, didn't like the idea of riding somewhere else, and I'm rather fond of the CCRT myself. Bob, it would be great if you could make it but we understand that it is a long trip for you. Top, sorry we can't make the 27th. Our ride will just have to be an unsanctioned preliminary to the Main Event. Prowler, we'd love to ride one of those trails in Connectthedots with you but time doesn't allow it. As per tradition we will depart from the Dennis parking lot, just south of exit 9 off rt 6. IIRC we will aim to start riding at 10AM.

@jimmuller, if Sharon has her heart set on the CCRT, then by golly I'll do my best to be there! I might combine a trip to see relatives who live in Foxboro and spend the night there Friday. Should be an easy drive on Saturday morning from their house to Dennis.

I will miss seeing the other C&Vers but I understand. A work day for me (Easter) is often a family day for others.

I could always do my "Surf and Turf" ride here on the North Shore some weekend. Top came down for that one time .. and I can get lots of people too.

was just there exploring the south western terminus, can I add this here, in case it's helpful for anyone?

traditional official CCRT parking
near Barb's Bike Shop 3454, 430 MA-134, South Dennis, MA 02660

to get more miles (4?~5? one way) park here
Old Town House Road Park 144 Old Town House Rd, South Yarmouth, MA 02664

& this map (w/o extension) shows mile markers
