    I saw at least two pair of baggies so I might fit in...

    What time do you guys head out? It's still light so must be 7-7:30ish? It appears you meet at someone's house?

    I don't know Mike. I used to ride with Jeff, Mike, Scott and Bob with the GOOD old SMC boys and we all wore baggies. Looks like a bunch of tea and crumpets clan?

    Be at Harv's house @ 6:30 pm EVERY Thursday. We head out from there. The address is 11288 S. Indian Wells Dr..
    Estrella Parkway South into Estrella Mountain Ranch.
    Stay on Estrella Parkway past Elliott (Safeway is on the corner).
    Continue south to Polaris - at Polaris, turn right and follow to the end of the road. His house is right there and would be hard to miss with all the crazy mountain bikers congregating outside.

    If the tea and crumpets come with a nice cold beer, hell I'm game.

    Hell Ya' baby!!!

    F.I.N.S. got beat-up pretty-good w/the recent-storms.

    We're riding F.I.N.S. again this week -- we usually rotate-loops, but will stick to F.I.N.S. again as at the very-least Odie and I are racing the 12 hrs. of Night in Prescott race on Saturday Night.

    We've been hitting the pool post-ride now too.
    See ya' Thursday Night.

    Baggies are nice and all, but not when it's 110 outside! Keeping the body cool makes me go faster and cholla doesn't respect baggies or lycra anyway.

    All the lycra is for cooling? Had no idea. Thought it was just for wind resistance.

    Almost,
    * * * SCRATCH THAT * * *

    ALWAYS Brews in the Fridge @ Harv's Domain! (And typically my beloved PBR's, but some of the other usual-suspects bring other / most-expensive brews...)

    Get your arses out here and see for yourself!

    Fast, medium, slow - several groups form to ensure fun for all. I won't be out this Thursday, but I'm sure it will be a good ride as always - check it out.

    As Cridge said, it usually breaks up into a couple groups. Distances vary as well from 10-18 miles depending on what we ride. It is always a great group ride and Harv is the MAN! You will have a good time...I guarantee it!
