3 hour tour on Saturday- you're invited

A combination of several things leads me to believe that a 3 hour tour would be a good plan for Saturday. Even if we get some snow Friday night, the temps should keeps things nicely frozen and hardened up. So, come one, come all, for a 3 hour mix of gravel and pavement looping down to Summerset State Park and possibly a couple points beyond if we have time. And did I mention free beer at the end of the ride? Starting 10 AM at my place, email me: for directions. With winds forecast out of the NW at 14 mph, be prepared for a kick in the junk on the way back, but it'll all be good once we hit the free elixir.

I'm looking for a couple of guys to join in. Pace will be mostly mellow depending on your riding form this year, but nothing killer. A good mix of hills, flats, gravel, and pavement. Laving at 10 AM, making a stop at the CITA meeting at 1 and then looping back to my place afterwards (if you aren't riding to the start) Your choice of cross or MTB. As long as the snow doesn't hit hard Friday night, I'm planning on the cross bike. See you there!

Oh crap, I guess I'm a "couple" hope that means I can bring myself and an alternate personality or two.

I should be able to make it.

I've got three hours of complete datacenter shutdown, maintenance, and project orchestration starting at 4:00 AM Saturday morning. I'm going to have to sit this one out, as good as it would be for me. I'll be at the Mews later that day so you can tell me impressive tales of your bicycling fortitude. :)
