    No need to. Apparently Rod is coming equipped with plenty on NON-3.2 beer , just for after the ride. I'm wondering how my head will react to real beer, at near sea level, after riding all day. Should be interesting.

    BTW, it sounds like I will hitch a ride with Rod Friday afternoon, so we'll need to plan a Friday evening dinner that extends long enough to pull in SK and Bubba when they make their fashionably late arrival in Santa Rosa.

    All of you doing the 200K are in for a treat this year. I just rode over Coleman Valley and it is gorgeous right now. Lush & green, lot of wildflower and happy cows. Hopefully the weather will be as nice next weekend!

    If there's a gathering Friday night let me know. I'll be done with registration at 9. There's a great brew pub (good beer, good pizza) in Santa Rosa too.

    Gaaah, bummer, this head cold set me back some and I really won't be up to a 200K next weekend.

    Deanna, is there a way to follow the 200K route, but then divert off the route after Coleman Valley in a way to get in less than 100 miles - preferably closer to 60 or 70 ?

    Yes, there are two options. One is to stay on 116/River Road after turning off of Hwy 1. This will be flat and will take you directly to the the start/finish. A better route will take you by the Wohler Bridge rest stop. I can show you on a map Friday evening or Saturday AM. I'll also try to scan a map of the route and PM it to you next week.

    Hey, don't leave me out of the plans! Sue F is picking up Bubba on her way over Friday eve. I have no idea about Cyndi as she is in Hawaii right now, but I'm footloose and fancy free all day Friday. As far as I know Cyndi's choices are 1) to go when we go, 2) go with SueF and Bill in the evening or 3) drive herself.

    Gawd, after DMD, I'm ready for the bunny ride. Or the dog parade. I'm sure I'll feel better by Saturday, but I am mentally canceling or shortening ride plans right and left...

    Is that what that drink was???? (I'm so clueless, I woulda been under the table for sure after the first glass!) Did you finish all of the jar?

    Just about. I did it for jobob since she couldn't make it.

    It was the Absolut Citron Cosmo special for the night. Tad sweet with the grenadine or whatever the red coloring was but after the ice started to melt it wasn't so syrupy. Actually, I think it helped settle my stomach.

    Thank goodness Bubba sacrificed himself and saved me from the marachino cherry. Ewwww.
