Ride cancellation via: If the ride is cancelled, Tom Dorigatti will handle the cancellation. Notification will be via e-mail to those on the e-mail listing. There is no way to get cancellation notice onto the web-site fast enough. Tom will try to get ride cancellation out by 6:00AM on Thursday morning. If things are really not looking good, I’ll send a notice on Wednesday evening.
Plan on a Casey’s stop (or a lunch stop) mid-ride. The group can decide whether to eat mid-ride or to eat at Pfeifer’s in S. Pekin near the end of the ride.
We haven’t ridden the planned route in quite some time, so it should be fun! We are hoping that the new bridge across the Mackinaw River on Towerline Road is open so we can use that route that we haven’t been able to use at all this year!
