Last week Dale led us due south into the howling winds of Byron. On Saturday at 9am -- to kick off the official Baselayer season -- we'll ride due north for a store stop at the 45th Annual Monticello Deer Festival. Then we'll wolf down a funnel cake and suffer southward. The start will be at Northridge Baptist Church on Gray Hwy just north of downtown Macon (location map at bottom of page). There is a short section of dirt (about a mile) but it's very smooth with no gravel. Hwy 11 is a good stretch of road for practicing rotations. The route length is 69.6 miles. No attack zones or sprints for this one.

On Sunday (Oct 23) at 9am, Christian will lead a 5- to 5.5-hr ride from Howard middle school parking lot on Old Forsyth Road. Please make sure to e-mail Christian ahead of time at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to join him. This will not be a no-drop ride, although no one will be left lost and stranded.

I'll be on the coast this weekend. So unless someone wants to lead a ride on Saturday, we'll see you on the 22nd for the Fried Green 50. I pre-rode it Sat and saw a zoo. Bobcat carrying squirrel, et cetera. What I saw looked just like the pic below. And it was windy, so he couldn't hear me and I got very close before he dropped the squirrel and hauled ass.
