Paul's 60th birthday ride, Sat Nov 11th
Nov 1st, 2017, 9:15am
 
Please consider joining me for a ride celebrating my 60th (which is actually the 15th - beware the Ides of November!)...  I think I want to do the Lancaster Rally 42-mile route, departing from John's shop at 9AM, returning around 12:30ish, and having lunch there in the square.  There is also an option for people to cut off in Ferris after 11 miles, to do the 24-mile route, if you wish.
 
We will NOT do the part after Palmer that goes into the hilly section with the wild animal farm -- instead, we will cut off onto 813 on the west side of Palmer, which is a far less hilly section, and has a good shoulder.
 
This will be a CASUAL PACE, NO DROP ride, but please be able to hold at least 13-14mph on the flats.  We'll regroup as needed, and adjust to whatever pace works for the group.  There may be some of the regular shop riders join us.
 
Park in the parking lot just a block southwest of the town square -- NOT THE GAZEBO SQUARE --  
 
See you in Lancaster?  We might even stop at the Sugar Ridge winery!!!

Wish I could be here for that. My birthday is on the 10th and I'll be 39!! Smiley I'll be headed to Missouri instead to move all my stuff out of storage and in my new house. Happy Birthday Paul. Welcome to the 60's!

My 60th is March, so I may come just to see what happens when one crosses that barrier.  I'll be looking at the weather.

Happy birthday Paul! Welcome to the toughest age group going. Must be something we all ate or drank back when we were young. I know it will become tougher with you joining the group! Smiley

Adults should have fun so kids will want to grow up!

For every mile of road there's two miles of ditch.

I'd rather be sorry for something I did than for something I didn't do.

I might come, Paul! Will be thinking about it this week. I wouldn't have even known except Jay asked me if I am going so I made an effort to find your post.

Weather looks quite promising at the moment -- chilly 50s in the morning, warming, with southeast winds giving us a tailwind in the 2nd half!!!
