Hey Dana and past event organizers, I think I'm gonna hijack the event by posting a date. I hope to see ya'll old schoolers as well as new faces out there. I'll stick to the gannon's-park-divebar-park-divebarbar-full moon plan.

Hey, thanks everyone. By the way, when I made that comment about the LFP and Bloomingdale, I did not consider the time of the rides. In my everyday biking life, I avoid those do to congestion.

Ray, the FBCers are friendly - but I have had some very enjoyable rides with them on the LFP, and there are many dive bars off the BT, so never say never!
