    You'll have to tell me where we're meeting exactly. Or Tam, do you want to ride with me?

    If we can squeeze my bike on with the Xtracycle, I can ride with you. Want to meet at my place 8:45-ish?

    I need to remember to clean my bike before Sunday morning. It's a dusty mess from my last towpath ride

    Sounds good. The Xtracycle goes on the roof rack, so there's room for two bikes on the back. Are we going to try to do a shuttle with cars so we can ride one way? Zen mentioned that earlier.

    And I'm sooo glad to know that you left your bike dirty, if only for a few days! I have this vision of you rushing home and taking the q-tips to it right away.

    My drive-train will be squeaky-clean thanks to Rock'n'Roll, but my frame is feeeelthy with dust.

    I don't think the shuttle idea is gonna work. We can fit two bikes and an Xtracycle on your car, but can we fit all of that in/on Zen's car?

    If we do that we can ride to Hancock
    But that'd be a long day what with all the loading, unloading, shuttling, etc.
    that's up to you guys. You'd have to drive much farther than I would.

    You've both seen the Mothership.
    What do you think?
    We can always have something sticking out the sunroof

    I dunno, I think I'd like to vote against the shuttled ride. Since I'm spending Saturday and Monday with family I'd love to have one day this weekend that's not complicated. And Hancock is well outside of Janice's 1.5 hour driving limit.

    OK, fine with me. I'll be at your house at 8:45 Sunday and you can be the navigator. I still have to figure out how to get the Xtracycle on the car by myself, and with this rain it may not happen. So I may be riding my Glorius after all, but the panniers will be fully loaded.

    Sounds good. And, speaking of rain, be prepared for mud on Sunday's ride

    Regina, we'll think about you eating birthday cake while we're getting spattered.

    I've got some zucchini shredded and ready to go into zucchini bread. Maybe I'll bring that for us to snack on. It will probably turn out like a brick anyway, so that will add ballast.

    I don't cook and might not even have time to even buy groceries for myself, so I hope you two aren't expecting me to bring anything besides my sunny personality...

    Nah, I assume we need to bring whatever we want for lunch, but we're all on our own.

    I assume that if anyone else was interested in joining us that they would have chimed in by now, but I'll ask anyway...

    Anyone else interested in meeting this Sunday at 10:00am at Williamsport, MD for a 25-30 mile ride on the C&O? The more the merrier, especially since we'll be missing our Big Buzz.
