    Rider Limit: X
    Anticipated Mileage: 37
    Elevation Gain: 6400
    Ride Duration: Good question.

    Just in case anyone wants to join... Temperature shouldn't be a factor, I hope.

    Temps will be perfect. 20% chance of rain, though.

    Not fast.

    Death March usually entails distance and elevation....pace is usually irrelevant.

    I can confirm it is a march and I doubt you will die. When I joined them a couple of months ago I was pleasantly surprised with the pace.

    I’m good with all paces I just wanted to know if it was a SS speed fest. If so I’ll bring a sandwich for all my alone time in the back. :)

    June 9th or the 16th. Jennifer and I may make a weekend out of it.

    And no I don't believe she would be interested in a death march.

    My in-laws will be in town then. Let's make it a really long one.

    Counting Coup route, but skip Holy Jim and opt for Trabuco? Might need to hide water for that one...

    Sorry I missed this ride. I was out of town. That's my excuse however if I made the ride it would have been the longest ride yet for me...:whistling: What is the phrase? Whistling past the grave yard?
