As most of you know, the First Annual Fall Finale Forty-mile Country
Path Ramble is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 19.
The purpose of this post is to try to firm-up some of the logistical
arrangements. On one hand this is not an organized, official, or
supported ride. As I've said before, there are no sags, no entry
fees, and no t-shirts. So why the attention to arrangements?
Well, while this is a fun route over mostly unpaved roads and very
little traffic, it is a ONE WAY ROUTE. That means that I plan to
leave my little house on the prairie at approx. 8 am and ride to
Muenster, Texas. Then I plan to have lunch at a local restaurant,
load up my bike in my previously dropped-off pick-up truck and drive
home (or have my beautiful bride come and pick me up).
If others plan to join me on this mini-epic, getting folks home will
require a little figuring. I suggest we try to get some
"commitments" (weather permitting) from those planning to
participate. Then maybe we can get some volunteers to help bring
bikes and bodies back.
Based on my recollection of those expressing interest, it might be
that only one or two return trip vehicles will be needed.
It's a little less than 2 hours from my place to Muenster and back by
