8-23-08 Skyline Ride - August 21, 2008, 08:22 PM

Starting at 7:30am sharp from sheetz off Rt 15 & I-66 for about 5 hours of riding (<180 miles).

The pace will be relaxed, 5-10 over at times (sorry, no blasting or double yellow passing).

Riding down some of my favorite local roads to snake out on 211 before hitting Skyline. My pass expires, so I want to hit it one more time.

Be careful out there, south of 211 on Skyline is BAD! Gravel, rocks, and construction. It was NOT fun south of 211, but north of there =

Yeah, I heard that direction was bad the other day.

It's all good though, I'm coming from the non-gravel direction (tested this route on Sunday).

Sorry KK, I'd make it later but I've got a ton of things to do in the afternoon.

The good news is that I'm debating on getting a full season pass just to do this anytime. So, plan for another ride in the near future
