    No, Kenny Rogers will not be on this ride but it will be a big gamble for me!  Will the early spring snow/rain fall predicted be dryed up or gone, will the wind gusts be as strong as predicted, will the inevitable pot holes be filled in or just filled in with water, will the temperature actually reach 50 degrees as predicted and will I actually be able to ride a low end "B" pace with a 28 mile distance?  Those are all some pretty big gambles, but I'm desperate to give it a try after this never ending winter.

    This ride will use predominately Washington county roads but unfortunately there will be some city and possibly some rougher roads to get there.  It will use a lot of the same roads that Bob and Lyle recently used for their rides.  I will be using a hybrid bike with fenders or my old, heavier road bike.  Anyone wanting to rides faster or slower is welcome to do so.  I may be riding to the ride if I haven't gotten my bike rack on the car yet...

    There are no restrooms at the ride start or break areas along the way but it is likely we may have to do some stopping for wardrobe adjustments, so plan accordingly.  The route link is 28 miles, but if needed you can shorten the distance to 23 miles by eliminating the Keystone/Lynch loop.  If the day does turn out to be super nice, I plan to ride a leisurely pace and enjoy being outdoors for an unbelievably late, almost first spring ride for this late start of the riding season.

    This ride could be canceled, due to any of the above reasons.  Feel free to text me at 651-295-1908, if questionable.
