It was too good to last. Shannon Kurek is not able to lead the Thursday New Albany rides as his plate has become even more full with his participation in the organizing of the new "Challenge New Albany" event. You can read more about it here: http://hfpracingnews.wordpress.com/
Good for him but a big loss for those of us who enjoy the Thursday rides. Either someone can volunteer to be the official ride leader for COP or I suppose it will become an event similar to the "Wednesday Worlds" which I think also used to be a COP event. Now, if you are interested in assuming ride leadership, probably Shannon's routes would be available to you so all you have to do is go through the file, select a route, show up around 5:30pm with sign-up sheets, ride the route and mail or email the sheets to COP and then do it all over again each Thursday. Pretty simple.
