Hi Shawn,

Neat pictures.  Glad you enjoyed the ride.

Hope to see you out here again.

Hey Shawn,

Got your message.  Unfortunately, I have not been out this year.  I have done a few trainer sessions but that's about it.  Things are hectic at work right now.  Hopefully that will change soon.

Thanks for the heads up. I will consider it if you think it will be worthwhile.  Virgil told me some time ago that the ones in the burbs seem to attract more serious buyers for road bikes.  My concern with this one is that there may be a lot of people looking for $50 bikes.  

BTW what do you mean you are not doing the HHH.  Is anyone from the group last year doing it again?
