This sounds like fun, and it's on a Sunday so I can actually participate! (I work Saturdays, so I don't get to do many of these type of events.)

So I did this ride yesterday and it was GREAT! It was basically the Mission Trail all the way to Mission Espada and back -- something like 22.5 miles. The new Riverwalk extension is beautiful -- I'm so proud of our city for creating something so amazing.

If you haven't ridden the Mission Trail, do it! It's an easy ride, and there are some gorgeous sights along the way.
