Smile New Year's Day ride - Triangle area

I'd love to join RidgeRunner and the others in the mtns on New Year's Day, but my schedule won't allow it. Also being the first day of the year, all my unused brownie points from '08 will have evaporated and I'll be starting over from scratch! I can only get permission for a shorter ride, closer to home.

Anyone else interested in doing an afternoon loop from Cary down towards Lillington and Sanford and back up towards Pittsboro? I'd like to make a couple stops along the way to hunt for a few geocaches, if the group is agreeable. I'm flexible on everything - the time (thinking about meeting at 1-ish), the route, and the geocaches.

Don

May the Adventure continue!

Great! Since we'll generally be headed your way, we can pick a meeting place near Holly Springs. Got a favorite spot in mind?

Hmmm.....I would say I could meet you in the new Super-Walmart parking lot on the 55 bypass or if you want to do smaller scale and perhaps some lunch, there is a Sonic on the old 55 which takes you directly in Town. The Sonic is basically behind my subdivision.

Good idea. Grabbing a bite to eat before we ride might be nice, especially if we get several people to join us. That would give us a chance to chat first.

I'd like to keep the route on back roads as much as possible, and away from long straight runs. I'm not an expert on the area, but will see what I can pick out from the maps and aerial photos. Nor am I an expert on riding the twisties, so I'll get us started and tell you where to wait for me!

If you are still planning this ride, I would like to commit to it.

Are you still planning on meeting in the Wal-Mart parking lot in Holly Springs at 1pm New Year's Day?

Also, is this Walmart located at 7016 Gb Alford Hwy, Holly Springs, NC 27540?

By the way, it looks like it will reach the low 40's, with sun and low (5-10mph) wind levels. I don't mind riding in these temps.

Thanks.
