Thanks for reminding folks Tammy.

That would be Sunday, JULY 13th.

We are hoping to raise $5000 from this event and we are already at around $1000.

Actual ride lengths are more like 57 and 32 miles.

It should be a lot of fun.

Hope to see many of you there.

Oops, yes, I meant July. Thanks for pointing that out. (Guess it was wishful thinking on my part? Hard to believe it's July already.)

Brian, my sister Michelle and I will be doing this ride. We are really looking forward to it! See you there Bruce!

Excellent !!!

Here's a partial list of the raffle prizes:

Tom-Tom auto navigation system with Bluetooth for your cell phone.

(3) Autographed Davis Phinney Foundation riding jerseys

(3) DPF Victory Tour riding jerseys

(3) DPF T-shirts

Team 7-11 replica riding jersey autographed by Ron Kiefel (teammate of Davis and Bob Rolle)

1 pair of Bontrager Race Lite tires

a bunch of bike accessories.

And maybe a couple of surprises.

Remember, while we are planning to have stuff at the start and finish of the ride, this ride is self supported so plan to have to stop somewhere along the way to re-fuel.

Fun, well marked routes with just enough challenge to make it interesting.

See you on Sunday.

Thanks very much for the tips Bruce! We look forward to seeing you at the start and finish on Sunday. You are too speedy for us so I'm pretty sure we won't be riding together!

Don't bet on it. Last night's TIme TRial REALLY hurt (VERY windy night) and Saturday's ride could be another fast one.

Besdies, I don't get to ride with you much any more so social riding might be in the plans.

I may even be doing the shorter loop so I can get back early and help with the cook-out and possibly late ride sag support if needed.

See you Sunday,

Bumping this up as a reminder. Hope you have a great ride -- May try and ride this one too, though we have guests visiting for the week so it may be hard. Bruce -- Great job on your DPF commitment. Talk to you soon.

Bruce -- Email a report from the P4P to post on the blog. (And a pic if you've got one.)
