    Hi there Mid-Atlantic Ladies! Is anyone doing this tour or possibly interested? It sounds fantastic. A couple of ladies I know have done it and really enjoyed it. Anyway, just thought I would share the information.

    My sister and I came out from California to do this ride a couple of years ago. We hadn't been to this part of Maryland before. We had a blast. The Blackwater refuge is just beautiful.

    I just signed up for it. It'll be my first time doing it and I'll be driving down from NJ. Really looking forward to it.

    I think this ride sells out every year. If they limit the number of riders, it's best to register now rather than wait.

    - Gray Trek Madone 4.7 road bike, mystery crack in top tube repaired by Calfee, Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle
    - Red Trek 6000 mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    I tried to book a room for it yesterday at the recommended hotels, and all the rooms were sold out! I'm staying 30 miles away. I'll look at it as a positive- the ride is popular enough to draw a good crowd!

    Anyone know if there is a place for RV's? I might go if my rv wouldn't be inconvenient.

    I will be riding over there on Saturday just because it's beautiful there in the fall. But I have other events Sat evening and Sun afternoon so I have not signed up for the official ride. If there is time, I'll check out the tent sale as well but I'm usually much too impatient to sift through those bins for bargains.

    Withm, I might do the same as you. It' turns out I'm not ready for a real tour or anything over 20 miles. I just did get a new saddle and it's killing me. My bike is also still too short for me and bugging my knees. I hope I can get a new bike later this year. I'm so tired of these fit issues.

    The Wild Goose Chase was yesterday. Did anyone go?

    I did ride about 30 miles in that area on Saturday. Lots of cyclists there despite the 38o temps in the morning when we started out! I stopped counting bald eagles after 10, including 2-3 immature eagles, perhaps a Golden Eagle, an unidentified hawk, about 50 Great Blue Herons, many egrets, a few turtles, and lots of ducks - but I'm not up on duck ID. Oh, yeah, lots of flying rats (Canada Geese). A few yellow legged sand piperery birds. Beautiful day. I think Sunday may have been a bit windy over there. No fall color yet - so I'll have to go back in a few weeks and do it again.
