I'm considering it, but won't know for sure until the day before. PM me your cell number and I can call you if I somehow can make it.

Part of the trick to making it is it's a 2.5 hour ride just to show up, and the other half of it is finding a babysitter for the day. We'll see.

My kids are threating to come home from college this weekend. If they do I will not be able to make it. If not I will try to ride down, at least for part of the run. I have plans that evenong also but could enjoy part of the day riding if the kids don't make it home.

I won't be able to make it tomorrow. Bummer, it sounds like fun and something I've never done yet. Have fun!

The ride was fun. Got a nice mix of cheers and jeers when I rode through Nelson, WI. I wore my purple FaVre jersey and that seemed to get the crowd fired up one way or the other. However, every Packer fan that approached me about the bike said nothing but good things. Classy.

I saw you in Nelson but you didn't wave back. It was busy street. Did you keep going? or stop in nelson. I thought you keep going.
