dates: july 5, july 6 and july 7
(3 days this time...reason to follow shortly)
location: davy and welch, wv

those of you that have been to last years ride here know most of the new info about this year, but i have extended the ride to 3 days. there will be a special event to occur on saturday, so the actual ride will take place on friday and sunday. i know some probably wont be able to make it because of the 4th being the same week, and this being the "4th of july weekend" but i was asked to do it this weekend for a very special occasion and i agreed.

so now with the standard information...

the itinerary...hopefully most will arrive thursday night.
1. the pizza place we have had dinner at the last two years is now closed...so we will be doing dinner on thursday night at pizza hut in welch.
2. friday morning will be breakfast at the sterling drive followed by fridays ride (route will be posted when i make one)
3. after the ride will be the cookout at davy and giving out door prizes donated by generous sponsors.
4. saturday morning will be breakfast at the sterling drive in followed by a short ride and then to the special event.
5. sunday morning will be breakfast at the sterling drive in followed by sundays planned ride...after which everyone will go their own ways back home.

please only post here if you are wanting to be added to the list of those attending, wanting to be removed from the list, looking for someone to "split a room with", etc...

basically this thread is strictly for anything and everything directly related to the ride...questions, inquiries, etc...

We have a room with 2 double beds, but we are only using one. If anyone is interested in saving money and would like the other half send me a pm.

Ok ... I called the day this thread was started .. they didnt have the list open yet ... procrastinated and missed out on the Pokey again... but I do have a room at the Count Gilu July 4, 5, 6. We are trying to arrange things so that wifey (Sharon, Yes same accent) can join the festivities. So one more for sure. Hoping for two ... I suppose the southern leg will do something similar to last year as far as a meet and ride up. Lets also hope for rain the week before and/or the week after.

actually, thanks for catching it boss man. i just checked and found out the ebay search keyword is "cyclesunblocker"...all one word. not three words. i tried it to make sure and it worked that way. as far as the "elusive dude" himself...i talked to him the day before yesterday and he said he now lives in mexico. beth told him she wants to go thank him in person for his donations to the ride...:doh:

come to think of it, didnt you get the very first one he donated a couple of years ago?

YEa, and have not been able to find him since...I did find the factory that makes them but dude was an ass and I didn't want 100,000 of them either.
he sent 3 covers last summer and said he is sending a few this year as well. sending me one for beths bike too for when she rides to work and its raining or direct sun etc. i can give him your email address if you like. he is actually a great guy.
