    okay... still trying to figure out a way to tag along on this ride (even though its gonna KILL me!)....

    What is everyone's best guess on how long we'll be riding and when we might be done w/dinner etc. (a realistic guess please ).... just trying to coordinate w/other stuff I wanted to do over that weekend

    Gee, we have us a Social Butterfly !

    Well, if we start at 7 am, and figure maybe about 5 hours riding time, perhaps 6 - 7 hours total (depending how much dawdlin' we do at Moscowite and over our peach smoothies at Coffee World) that would get us back into Winters around 1 to 2.

    Not sure what time Steady Eddy's closes this time of year, I'd be up for going there afterwards if it's still open, but the pizza place is a good standby.

    Doesn't the Putah Creek Cafe open fairly late afternoon, or am I confusing it with someplace else?


    Oh and Trac', it won't kill you, I promise ! I had a bit of an achey back last time we did this ride, and there was a very easy bailout option to avoid Cantelow.

    7 huh? UGH!!!!! We'll probably go if we're gonna be done that early... 'course that means we have to leave at 4 or before I'll go find the last report and see which bike I should bring

    I don't think 7 has been settled on, that was just the time we started last year. Perhaps Madame Organizer will want to start later this year since we have some folks coming from the hills over yonder ?

    But Tracy, considering the ride you have planned for Memorial Day, this one should be a piece of cake.

    We need to be climbing Cantelow early due to the heat and the boat traffic. Best to be going up with the Dble Century folks. 7 would be ideal for this.

    Can yawl manage? We really want you along!

    I said I'd do that ride fully knowing that I can cut a big chunk of climbing out by going down skyline... it is a ride WAY over my head...

    Kewl.

    Try this map for the Purah Creek Cafe or google directions for 1 Main Street, Winters, CA. The parking lot is directly across the street to the east. Look for Steady Eddy's Cafe on the far side of the parking lot (and Jo inside).

    Ms. Wizeguy up there meant Putah Creek Cafe.

    And yes, I'll be with Lee in Steady Eddy's, with Trekhawk no doubt (since we're all compulsively early types)
