Any word on this? I've got it penciled on my calendar in for the 26th, but don't see it on the Chainlink Calendar yet.

Right on. I'll set up an event page for the 2015 ride here and on facebook soon. Whooooooo!

The 26th would work perfectly.

T.K.--I missed the video before.  That is "real nice".

Thanks for remembering us non-facebook folks!  Hoping to make it past Rainbo Cone this year.

Ha! Sorry, man--everybody's on board with the 26th so far. I'll start pre-rides in mid Sept.

Planning my 2015 I've reached September. Roshashana's Sept 13-15th. Marauders third Sat is Sept 19 (also talk like a pirate day), Northshore Century is Sun Sept 20th.  Friday Sept 25 is CriticalMass.  Sunday the 27th is a full moon, fire jam, and likely FBC ride.

I suggest Saturday September 26th for PR2015.

Ridecording archived: ~80mi ~16hrs ~10mph

Distance was a few miles short of a full round trip as we ended at the Billy Goat (at 12:50am) rather than full circle to the fountain. Also technically a few miles low because I use a high gps jitter reduction setting. mph is based on lower "in motion" hours. All agreed the wooden bridges part was heaven. I heard there were seven flats, which it seemed David personally fixed most of. The splash of rain was blessedly merciful, nigh perfect. Something like 53 started, various joined, 47ish did most, 27 in the home stretch, a dozen-plus finished? Then James and I hit the barcade...

I sooo understand the first half drop outs; this year's biggest challenge was headwind. My body's glowing happily. See y'all next year!
