    Rite of Spring Ride

    All right - the New Year has started, most of us have our bikes covered and on battery chargers so let's start planning for our first ride.

    Time: April 24th, 2010

    Inital Meeting Area: somewhere near the New England Air Musueum in Windsor Locks CT for breakfast

    Ride Plan: After breakfast ride Route 20 West, to 8 North to Mass 23 west to Rte 7 South to Rte 4 East and then cut north Rte 10 back to the Air Museum and hang out there for a late lunch and see the Museum.


    Items that need to be finalized:

    • Breakfast location
    • Alternate route for Route 10 leg back to the Museum
    • Lunch Location


    We got plenty of time to come up with a kick butt plan to start the riding season, so let this thread be a blank canvas for brainstorming.

    Cheers

    Luis

    I rode today.It was 44 degrees and raining.Maybe old school and the norm for some of you but I did it just to prove to myself I could still do it.I been getting soft in this warm weather climate and wanted to give myself and some of my gear a test before a bigger test later on this summer in a possible run for the ralley.I do feel sorry for those of you who are snowed in though.Although I got a ride planned tommorrow too.Sorry I had to throw that in there to.

    Steve - I will have my wife look into eateries and see if we can a few to select.

    Would love to do the visit. A good friend of our lives in Enfield. We'll be down that way about two weeks after the ride ( on our way to Miami...... uh.... by car. ) so can't make the ride. However, going to that museum looks like a visit that we can make at that time. Enjoy and I look forward to seeing the pics. The time will be upon you in a blink! - Bob

    I might be in for that ride if winter is letting up here by then. I will have to check my calendar. That's about a 2 hour ride for me from home.

    Luis, do you mind if I suggest this ride at my next club meeting? I do not know how many would be interested by maybe a few.
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
    I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

    As it would happen I can't make my own ride on the 10th........

    So looking for votes for either April 3rd or the 24th.

    The 10th is still open but I would like to ride my own ride if I can

    I'll set up a poll for about a week to see the interest.

    Either of those work for me Luis. I hope to be there. I had better get some brake pads ordered.
