    I don't know the course that well. It's been a few years since I've ridden. But it sounds like a great plan. I maybe could join your group, and I have a bear bell for the shooters. Now, when you say "lunch", you mean "lunch at Lupe's". Right?

    I am told the new start time is 10:30ish. I am very familiar with the route but will have to "lead" from the back of the pack lol!

    Sounds like you'll have the solo class locked up then.

    I am on a duo team so probably not. The twenty was just an arbitrary number. My point was that the loop will be ridden a lot.
