Ok, so the weather forecast for Sunday's event is not so great, but this is one time the event won't be cancelled if it does decide to rain - the boat ride is on regardless, and if it rains we'll just head directly to Maynard's right after the boat ride. To remind you, if you're doing the boat ride, be at the city dock by 11:30 to assure good seating (first come, first served on that).

And again, you can park all day at the Excelsior Elementary School East Back parking lot, just behind the old Library on Water St. It's just a couple of blocks from the parking lot to the city dock where the boat will be moored, so plan to park at the school lot and walk over to the boat landing (on your way is the Du nn Bros on Water St.- but remember, no food or drinks allowed on the boat!). Then, hopefully, the weather will hold off and, after an hour's break once the boat ride's done, so we have time to change shoes, etc, and get ready for the ride, we'll start the ride at 2:00. If all goes well and we do get to ride, both the A/B and B/C groups should finish their respective routes by about 5:00, then on for eats at Maynard's.

Again, any questions, let me know (651-747-7712). And I do have a couple of spare boat ride tickets for those in a pinch or who decide last minute to do the boat ride (like you Sue Bluhm!) and if it's full up.

See you Sunday!

Mark

FYI here's a link to the A/B route, which is just a repositioned version of Eric Feld's Rolling on the West Side ride (the 43-mile version): ridewithgps.com/routes/25287621 . Dave Gepner is leading the B/C ride and will have a route that somewhat follows the A/B route, but with shortcuts. (As of this post he's working on his route...)

Well, bummer that it's raining today. So the bike ride portion is cancelled (both A/B and B/C) but the boat ride and eats after at Maynard's are stilll on, so will see the boat riders at the school parking lot or directly at the city dock on Lake St. Be early so you can get an inside seat on the boat, but regardless bring rain gear just in case.
