Romney WV Rally

I figured it might be a good idea to start a thread for those going to the rally the 1st weekend in May. We should make a list of those going, departure times and where to pick up riders along the way. I'm leaving Friday, time is flexible and heading over the peace bridge. I programmed my garmin for 3 suggested routes from "Dirtdad" in case a local rider is not available to lead. If there is interest we could get together at a central timmys a week before to discuss. At least we're south. It's sunny and 10 degrees in Romney right now compared to 0 in St Catharines

Romney

I was the sole Canadian in Romney last year , and found it to be a great experience ; very welcoming and friendly riders , great hosts , and incredible roads .
My plan is to leave Newmarket on the Thursday morning with at least two buddies , overnight in a state park , and make it to Romney @ mid-day Friday .

Closer to departure , I will use Tyre to set a GPS route of back roads ( the faintest lines on the map ).

I highly recommend the Romney experience .

Alex .

Not all my lucid moments are consecutive .

I am joining Alex this year and REALLY looking forward to the first big run of the year. Alex plotted some awesome roads to the Fall Peep Show past year and I expect nothing less for Romney. There are a lot of Canucks coming this year. ..but come on guys...take Thursday off too and join us !!!!

FINALLY got out today for a Wee Run !!! Sorry Alex.

I might be able to get Thursday off. What time would you be passing through St Catharines roughly?

I was just kidding. If you want to go 1 day earlier, no problem. In fact after you posted that you want go on Thursday, I started to think about taking one more day off as well. It still one more month tough.
