GRIFFIN RUN, BIOTCHES! - February 7, 2015, 10:13 PM

Ok, it seems like the Griffin Run has gone a little dry last year. I'm ready to pick it up again. But, I'm choosing a different route, as it seems some of the local 5.0's have picked up the scent of our trail. Specifically the last 5 miles. I'm looking to do the first one in early to mid March. I will pick the weekend based on votes.
You KNOW that I will not disappoint. OK, the route that I have planned is about 200 miles round trip. It's about 5 hours. It's much different than the previous Griffin Runs, BUT it does cut through to the Griffin. So, tell me folks. What weekend are you good for?

UPDATE:
Date: March 29th
Time: 0930 - Stands up at 1000
Pace: Noob
Meetup: 14514 Lee Rd, Chantilly, VA 20151

It's been a long time since I've done a Noob ride and I'd really like some of the new folks to get acquainted with the back roads around here!
For you noobs out there, this is a very FUN route, but it is a very friendly pace. You will have no problems keeping up.

RULES:
ATGATT - If you don't dress appropriately, you cannot play with us.
Time - 0930, Stands up at 1000. Make sure you are on time, with a Full tank. It will probably be about 100 miles before we stop.

At 0940 I will be giving a small class on pre-ride check lists. This class has a lot of great information, so if you are new to riding, you should really check it out.
I need a volunteer to show up a bit early so I can put his/her bike on a lift for the class and do the check list on. Preferably one easy to work with
(That's code for "no Ducati")
At 0955 I will give a safety brief for the ride. This is when I go over all the rules, route, hand signals, etc...
Starting point is at the shop, so if you need air for your tires or chain lube, we can hook you up right quick.

I'm pretty stoked about this ride and a great kick-off for the season!

Usually halfway through March it's above 60's on the daily.

Except now, that I said that.....

It's only been a couple of years since we last had a 12"+ snowstorm in March. Should be good for another 6 or 7 years before that happens again.


There's bold riders and old riders, but damn few bold old riders.

If the pace isn't too aggressive I'd be down. Should be free most of those weekends. You thinking a Saturday or Sunday run?

Sunday. I've not yet decided on the pace. Depends on the turnout, I suppose. I may even make it a noob ride to get some of the boots familiar with the back roads.

What time do you usually head out? Once date is decided I can better see if I am down. I work sundays so it depends if I can take off.

I want to go but I'm either working on your days or coming off a 12 night shift so no go. I want to learn some of these backroads though. Guess I'll have to explore solo.

I'm sure there'll be other opportunities. I've already found several individuals and groups willing to show a newcomer around.

So I know we've got a set date... But would you be interested in maybe doing the first a week earlier? Talking to a few buddies about doing it then. The 22nd and 29th? I've got a Special Olympics game on the 29th day that I'll be coaching for.

If not no worries if not though (I can also show the CBR if you wanted to do a demonstration so you wouldn't have to deal with all that stuff)
