Count down…

It’s been a long winter but it’s finally time.  GFE is THIS Sunday and they start coming at you pretty fast after that.  A couple of us got out for a pre-ride a few weeks ago.  It was basically our first time on the course since last year.  Everything looked pretty good.  No snow, not really even any mud to speak of.  It was about as nice a day as you could ask for, blue skies and a nice breeze pushing us home from Palisades.  Looking forward to seeing everyone this Sunday, weather is shaping up to be decent.  Better than last year anyway!
