    Rite of Spring Ride Part 2

    All right folks -let's reset this and try again - based on multiple emails and pm's it looks like the 17th will not work.

    As this is a chance for all of us to get together I am changing the date for the FINAL time to be that of May 1st .

    *********************************************

    So here are the particulars:

    MEETING LOCATION - Cracker Barrel at Windsor Locks CT

    MEETING TIME - 100AM- for those who want to arrive earlier to have breakfast feel free.

    GROUP MEETING - 1015AM

    RIDE ROUTE w/Major Waypoints is listed below - AWESOME Job Steve putting this together for us

    NOTE - the Air museum is still in play for those who want to do it, either at the begining or the end of the ride

    Note 2 - for the Massachusetts group who wants to ride down together, we will meet at the Westborough Service Plaza on the Mass Pike (Exit 11A) at 815AM to be back on the road at 830 so as to be at WL at 1000AM - this is mostly for expediancy.

    Note 3 - Lunch is tentatively scheduled to be in New Barrington - exact place TBD - suggestions here are very welcome.

    Again - my apologies to all for the constant changes

    I entered Windsdor Locks CT into map quest and nothing. Is this the correct spelling???
    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.

    So with the revised posting with the updated information - can we do a head count.

    Also for those coming from MA - how many will be meeting at the Westborough Plaza

    Unless something comes up between now and the 1st, I'll be there.

    What time at the service area on the pike?

    Let's meet at 815am at the Westborough plaza.

    Probably near the food area - that way we can do a quick fill up / rest stop before moving onto Winsdor Locks

    Might I suggest lunch at the Toy Maker's Cafe in Falls Village CT? If so, I would bypass Great Barrington to the South and pick up Rt 7 in Sheffield, MA

    Great suggestion - I woulkd recommend that when we meet at Winsdor Locks we see the size of the crew we have and after the riders meeting finalize the trip and stops.
