Adding to the below, Mark will lead a ride out of the Church at 9:00am going to Buckeye Lake with 50 miles for the main route and two other options that can add 10 or 20 additional miles going through Bremen but the main route is 50. All are welcome, riding at an A & B off season pace. Always someone holding back to regroup at turns but a main group wanting to go faster is fine too. Winds out of the NW but not bad. 36 degree forcast at 9:00am. Looks like a ride out of New Albany at 10:00am. The integrity of the New Albany Training ride group collapsed completely when Corvair was added as a member. Guess my entry paved the way for other undeserving members too.
Kind of been waiting around to see if anything else came up, especially out of that New Albany Training Ride group but they must be late planners. Bob Allen has a ride out of Cyclist Connection but the proposed route appears to be on the short side but it's there as an option and then, like a bolt from the blue, Mark C volunteered to lead a ride out of the Nazerene Chruch on Coonpath Road (head south on #33 and hang a left at Coonpath at the Wendys). Route will be 55-60 miles but exact destination not yet known until wind factored in. Mark has gained quite a bit of luggage around the middle so it won't be too hilly. Start time is 9:00am. More details to follow.
Regarding the Blue Jay vote, my plan was to delay things long enough so that only one date would be available and it worked like a charm. Flyin and me got a Saturday in June and that's it. I apologize publically for calling her tubby in the comment field. I should have used something more appropriate like "fatso" or "porker" but not tubby. I'm sorry.
