Edit 6:25pm 11/6/21: I'm reminded that Daylight Savings ends tomorrow. Get an extra hour of sleep (and allow the day to brighten and warm a bit); reset your clocks tonight, and we'll see you at Standard Time for the ride!

So after shootin' my mouth off for weeks about running these rides as long as the temperature was above freezing, I didn't list for the past two weeks*, and now I'm feeling guilty... so I'm posting in advance. As I write this on 11/1, I don't know what the route will look like, but I'll come up with something.

Usual Plain Jim stuff will apply: nobody dropped, fast folks will have sprint opportunities, no toilet at start but we will stop as people need. I just got my booster (I'm old), but still: let's be courteous and thoughtful about coronavirus.

It will probably be a 70/30 ride, as Mr Chen calls it: we'll be through 70% of the ride before the stop.

More news later in the week as things shape up.

Edit 11/3/21: I'm doing this one: Link to Route  We'll stop at Boro Bean Thomas Sweet in Montgomery.
*Do you want to know? A number of the Insane Bike Posse did the Fall Foliage Weekend, hosted by the Bicycle Club of Philadelphia, two weeks ago (most of us loved it; TEW [The Excellent Wife] says we're planning to go again); on Halloween, I did Laura OLPH's "Halloween Lambertville" ride, to see the unique decorations on Union Street (yes, unique: I doubt there are any others quite like them in the entire world).
