Today I missed a turn on my recon ride and ended up finding very pretty views, but achieved little in discovering more of the route. Also I lost my Starker Forest permit and my Starker maps. All in all 4 hours on the saddle was a good time. I now have Tuesdays off now so I get to ride my bike and the route more frequently!
Something I missed in the previous post.

Every other week I'll be posting the rider roster.
Race Day is April 16th, 2011
9 am is the ride start time.
This may be obvious but I need to state the necessary things for riders to have with you on the ride. I won't be checking you over, but if you're missing one of these pieces you may find yourself stranded.
- Cycling computer with trip distance functions.
- Helmet. Don't be an idiot and show up without a helmet. No one wants to call the cops trying to describe where they are and have a helicopter come to pick you up because you smashed your head wide open.
- Handle bar map case. Cyco Active makes a sweet map case that Peak Sports will be stocking.
- Cash. I'm pretty sure the Burnt Woods and Summit general store take credit, but cash is universal and a safe bet for a small transaction, plus it comes in handy as a tire boot or home made bandage.
