Woohoo! A Sunday ride. I'm interested, especially if there's a decent sized BF contingent.

Poor Joel. He never said I could join him, guys, and if he does, it would be Joel/ME plus option.

You can join, but only if you ride 4 feet behind me at all times.

You don't smell THAT bad, Joel. Come on. Besides, it was just a suggestion...
Oh, sorry, perhaps I shouldn't repeat that on here.

What about me? Am I allowed to join in on an optional extension? And where is my assigned spot?

The reason I have not confirmed is I've got a birthday then a wedding and some stuff w/ kids planned in April. Funny thing is I am not sure which one is on which days/weekend. If I am free then its a go.

Last I heard Joel is not poor. I just assumed since both of use live in Cherman Oaks riding out to GP just adds a few more miles and you would not mind reeling me back home if I am still alive

I should be good to do this, save me a spot for the extensions. I can loiter in the back, no need to assign me a good position.

I'm curious to see how they route the ride through downtown.

They use the Griffith park/lar river bike path (lots of fun at the fletcher exit in the crowd)...and that really bad part after fletcher...I sometimes ride out to Riverside...that last part is so bad...I have seen wheels pop off bikes there..
Then they go over to Figueroa, then down W26th....Broadway...then Vignes..cesar chevez....Washington...into vernon and the LARIO trail....
a bit fugly down there...some pretty bumpy roads...they were working on some last year so it might be better....6 railroad crossings..

then a couple of miles on the street in LB....then return same way....
