Where:
Carl's Jr
5701 E. La Palma Ave
Anaheim, CA 92807-2229

The post-ride meal will NOT be at Carls Jr. in you're worried about that.

If I don't ride stagecoach due to lack of riding funds, I'm game to tackle GMR ride if its a bit warmer.

I've never done GMR and would like to attempt it with a smaller group. I may be up for this ride. Plus I'm not cool

How about Sunday, the 14th, roll at 7:30? I haven't done this route, so I don't know how long it would take the average folk to finish.

Sunday is better for me as well, it's a long ride, I'd suggest an earlier start, maybe try to roll by 6:45?

We may be in. Having it on Sunday definitely increases the odds.

wow, if I do all of the BF rides then I will not have to do any real training and I'll be able to do any ride I want...

call me tentative for now because I have a concert the night before (Sly and the Family Stone)... Basically, if I wake up (I will set the alarm, but as I figure that I'll be getting home around 1AM...) then I will head out for this route.

I'm not exactly "Out like Gout" since I may (MAY) come meet you guys at the bottom of GMR and head up to Baldy Village and back. I will need a recovery ride after Stagecoach, and I could just go up at my own pace and back down. I might be able to recruit a few others who want a kinder-gentler-ride to join me.

Edit: does this mean I'm in a whole new category? Like "Sorta in Like Snakeskin" or "Slipping in like Lamb Skin"?
