@ldmataya I'm meeting RobbieTunes' cousin Laura somewhere near the Staybridge in Middleton at (I think) 9:30. Pace will be whatever. Much better than me trying to rely on Google Maps not to route me on some bike-unfriendly roads. I've got a map somewhere. If you want to join us, I'll dig it up and send it to you.

Due to work, I have not left yet, so the Friday AM ride is out.
Mike, please contact Scott about the start in Dodgeville.
Scott, please contact Mike about the start in Dodgeville.

It appears Scott can simply drive to Dodgeville for that ride start. I'll also let idmetaya know, as he's planning it.
Those leaving from Madison have already worked it out, I believe.

Update: I'm also going to be delayed and will be unable to ride anytime on Friday. I'll arrive arrive mid afternoon. Rain is expected tomorrow. The rain will be most likely in the afternoon, but could start earlier. Saturday should be dry.

I rode the HHH in the rain off and on all day. Rain takes your mind off pain. I just looked at Saturday and looks like less than a 7% chance all day....so just pain

Stay positive all! My plans too just had a slight derail. Friend and old war vet, had a mishap in his home this AM. Took him to ER. Skipping the bloody details but was an all day ordeal. I'm way behind to wrap up and need a few zzz's. Might be dragging a bit but I'll be there. Be safe and see ya soon~

See you all then, safe travels.
