2nd Annual Great Northern Ride & Salsa-Off

Hey gang,

Next SATURDAY, July 25, is our next team ride. It's the 2nd Annual Great Northern Ride and Salsa-Off, hosted in Montague by Derek, Katie, Steve, and myself. Check your e-mail this week for a map and address.

We'll do a 10:00 a.m. roll-out with 63ish and 45ish "somewhat hilly" mile options with refueling opportunities along the way. You'll be especially happy if you are someone that enjoys blue raspberry slushies.

After the ride, we'll supply brats, hot dogs, and all the fixins'. You bring something to pass...perhaps an entry into the Salsa contest (this year with 'traditional' and 'non-traditional' categories to make it fair for those of us who like mangoes in our salsas), or whatever you like.

Don't forget to bring bathing suits, towels, etc...there's a pool! Families are welcome--and there's a beautiful beach right around the corner where they can hang out while we ride, and can meet us back at the house afterward.

It's a bit of a hike for some of you, but we promise, totally worth it. If you think of it, send us a heads-up that you plan to make it, and approximate headcount. Thanks!

Scott and I will not be able to make the ride (I am totally bumming out too btw)...we have our Cut-a-Thon fundraiser same day from 3-6pm. I was thinking perhaps nobody would mind moving the start time to say 7ish and then we could do both! :) love you guys..

I've missed too many rides - expect the "old guy" to show up and possibly his much younger wife to ride a bit and hang at the POOL!!
