***IMPROMPTU RIDE FOR STATS CREDIT*** I'm getting so slow that I'm a week behind the Russian River Rally gang. Let's go see what we missed last week.

We'll avoid the week-day commuter traffic, but it's a long drive up there and facilities are limited. Please contact the ride leader to be part of the select few attending this special event.
