Short notice ride 6-14

Short notice ride,

Tomorrow is the anniversary of my Mothers passing, I want to kind of get away for the day.

I'm planning a trip for a few hours, Just to kinda, I don't really know what I'm trying to get out of it other than some clarity.

Its a loop about 5 hours of riding. under 200 miles and a stop somewhere when I get hungry. The route I think has a bit of Gravel involved and I would feel more comfortable with someone along with me "just in case". If no one can make it I will probably pull the gravel section out of my route or change it all together.

Since it is raining today it may be damp in areas and the dust will surely not be to bad.

I am planning to go earlier in the day so I can be with my family in the afternoon.

Any takers?

Reaper, My condolences to you. Lost mine several years ago myself. One month from tomorrow she would have been 79...

Would be honored to ride with you, however I won't get back in town until sometime after 7:00pm. Take care out there and ride safe.

I know its a long shot and its short notice but I thought I would toss it out there.

Unfortunately I work. Looks fun though. I'd like to try out some gravel, but a little closer to home.

Sorry to hear. I can't say work was a ton of fun either. I might be heading down to the Lyons area tomorrow afternoon sometime. It would be a one way trip for me, but if anybody wants to tag along. Could find the scenic route.
