idmataya, and my cousin Laura, at present, have expressed interest. Darryl may alter his route to accommodate. He is in Mt Horeb

AM
RobbieTunes



PM
RobbieTunes



Friday AM, this is not an either/or. You start where you're at and ride.
Appears there are 3-4 riding west to Mount Horeb, and 3-4 riding east to Mount Horeb.
We meet at the Grumpy Troll and break bread, wind and tell bike lies.
Let us know where you're coming from?

Riding east from Mineral Point or Dodgeville to Mount Horeb.

Feel free to write this in.
I'm driving 1127 miles to get there. I'm gonna ride somewhere.

How about organizing using Google Docs? Here is a Sheet I just created that anyone with the link can edit: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...NFk/edit#gid=0

Regarding 38-miles on Thursday-- I proposed starting a Machinery Row Bicycle Shop. Full route: gmap-pedometer.com

I can do AM or late PM.

Fantasy Factory | Karben4 Brewing | BeerAdvocate
Beer Finder | KARBEN4 BREWING

Hop Garden beer is good, but not phenomenal.
I've read about Karben4 and The Fantasy sounds great. I may have to go to the taproom or have their beer at a pub/tavern.

Skip, I'll check with locals on Middleton to Verona, but county M strikes a chord, nearly a straight shot south.

I'm a maybe for Thursday, and IN for Sunday (especially if it ends at UW Union Terrace !!). I already responded to smontanaro by e-mail about directions from Middleton->Verona. My favorite way south is Timber Lane to Paulson Rd to the Trail. From Middleton, you can get to Timber Lane by going Deming Way to Old Sauk.

ppg's route is fine. I wouldn't take M on a bike, too much traffic.

As a possible alternative, High Point dead ends on Midtown, go right. Left on Woods. Woods dead ends on PD, go right. First left is Nine Mounds. About a half mile after you cross Verona Rd, take right on trail. There are a couple nice hills on this route.

OK, bumping. I am not going to be able to leave early tomorrow, but I'm getting there (lots of work).
That rules out me going on a Thursday AM ride, but I should be there for a PM ride.
Given the low mileage of it, the relaxing route, and some locals who are wanting to go, that's better.

Everything else looks OK. The bikes are in the car, helmets, kit, clean underwear, tire pump, tools.

If only I had a little more time... I'll be driving back to Canuckistan while the rest of you fine folks suffer on those massive climbs.

I have been riding in the Porcupine Mountains and have been cooling off in Lake Superior of late... and eating my weight in cheese.

Clean undewear? Is that allowed on the DD?

I will be riding toward you on the trail Friday, wearing some kind of vintage jersey. Looks like a decent chance of rain Friday, so I will PM you a contact number should there need to be a change or short-circuit the route. If so, I can get to another meeting place. I can also transport if weather gets too bad, but often you can just dodge showers in summer rains.

63% chance of rain Friday; 40% chance Saturday. Looks like I might be bringing the Bridgestone XO-2 as it has fenders . . . . plus plush tires and a triple,

Sunday is looking good though,
