"Oh, I'm also interested in the trip. I just always worry that I won't be able to keep up on longer rides when they are faster than "social." I'd love to do the get acquainted ride and see if I'm up to the pace!"
"So lets set up a a beer n ride to hash out details?
So a few ideas: please chime in with preferences!
a (the easy option) we all just ride up to a brewpub (perhaps something in andersonville such as hopleaf?) for beers, plannin and then maybe a…"
"I would love to come on the April weekend, I would also like to camp, but I might need to take the train back due to time constraints. Count me in, at least for the one way trip.

"Scheduling a beer/ride/planning session sounds like a good idea.
I think I'm free mid April, so the 19th should work for me.
My personal preferences would be...
1st choice: To camp and ride back
2nd choice: Stay in a hotel and ride back
"Down to stay the night for sure, down for a shorter ride soon...as for the MIL ride, the later the better due to my work schedule, but I realize I'm only one. Chris said:Okay, whoa!

I'm psyched by all the interest in this ride and it has sparked several ideas on my part:
1. looks like we have 7 definties and a number of maybes. The definites would be: DonRay, Norm, T.Mo, Kelly, Tank, Brett and myself.
"I didn't know that you can camp at Cliffside Park, it would be a great place for it. From my trek up North last Fall:
I wouldn't do alone again, and would also wait for warm weather. It kinda sucked riding alone and chilly."
I don't know of any *specific* cross trails... I tend to head out on the trails that all the mountain bikes use, and then break my bike. My companions are often times on Sessions and Fuels, so obviously I get the shaft on that one.
Sweetwoods was a lot of fun... I'll ask around to see if there are any milder trails. I like the challenge of trails not suited for me, but you might not. haha
