    Not to worry, we're skipping any of the more technical and difficult areas by walking through them and there will be no drops on this ride.

    Hey boyz!!!!

    I think I rode with you guys on Wednesday evening at Walnut Creek! Except I don't remember either of you being fat or particularly slow.

    Wish I could be in on this ride but prior committments prevent a Sunday ride for ! I have never even tried riding the Greenbelt so it is doubly frustrating that I can't make it.

    I did tell some of my lady friends who saw your post that you both seemed to be well-mannered, respectable gentlemen so if any of them show up, I hope I don't have to eat my words!

    Be careful out there guys!!!

    Man, I wish I didn't have plans... I am slow and accident prone so I need something like this. Plus I live really close!

    Will you all do this again sometime on a Sunday?

    There's usually a group grope on sunday, lately it's been at bcgb. Just keep an eye out for sunday rides. I usually ride there sun-tues (not everyday, just those days when I can). Group rides are pretty much no-drop; there might be people up ahead but they'll usually wait for ya, and others that'll keep behind so that no one gets lost or left back.

    Yeah, my problem is that with the "new" job I don't exactly have a weekend. I get Weds, Thurs, Sunday off.

    So unless some of my friends play hooky (is that spelled right?) or I wait until after they get off work and run up to WC... or stuff my bike into my "pod" at work and go after work, I am on my own until Sundays.

    Maybe slow is not the word, just cautious...

    I'm sure we will- I'm really hungry for riding, been riding alot at WC and very little at BCGB, so this is just what I need.
    Jim who instigated this ride says he has ridden there alot so he knows where the sweet(easy) spots are.
