Ride cancellation via: If the ride is cancelled, Tom Dorigatti will notify those on the e-mail listing via e-mail. There is no way to get cancellation notice onto the web-site fast enough. Tom will try to get ride cancellation out by 7:30AM on Thursday morning. If things are really not looking good, I’ll send a notice on Wednesday evening.
George has a new route worked out that should be fun and depart from the norm.
Planning on at least one Casey’s stop and lunch near the end of the ride at the new restaurant just East of Tremont.
