Invite is here:

So far I have 3 maybes so I'm going light on my post ride picnic food. If you're coming please sound out.

Hope you can make it.

Scot: I think I'm going to show. I'm just a bit
apprehensive since you're talking monster hills and
50+ miles.

I just did a 63 miler and did it conservatively, and
did fine. I have visions of a hammer-fest and visions
of me bonking by the side of the road somewhere.

Prior to that I'd only done rides this year in the 20-30
mile range, and my daily 18 mile commutes. I'm pretty
sure I'll do fine I'm just being a wimp at the moment.

I also have to check out my front derailleur since
towards the last third of my 63 miler I ran into a
problem with going to the big ring and the chain was
throwing itself from the bike in a way I'd never seen
before - I suspect cables stretching out and whatnot.
I wouldn't worry.Scot_Gore

I'm not looking for a hammerfest, just a nice ride with good company. The turn out looks to be pretty light, so pace and mood will be determined by a small set of friends.

Sounds fun. I have some relatives flying into the TC area
from out of the country. I've been told by the wife that
there may be dinner plans for that evening if they actually
make it in. I'm still planning on doing the ride since I'm
wanting to do it. It's possible I may have to bow out of
the after-ride festivities if they do show up.
