    AAAAHHHH.

    Not sure I can swing it this week... Going to ride tomrrow. Just not sure if I'll drive the kid to my parents and ride from there to work... Or leave work early and hit St Joes... Or leave work early and pack for my backpacking trip tomorrow... THEN go to TNGR.

    I want to do TNGR. Just not sure it'll happen...

    Gosh golly gee whillickers… dropping my wife and boys off at the airport early tomorrow morning. This could be good. I’ve never ridden at The Gap before, at least, not legally. I think I may have done some “slightly less than legal” riding near there back in the early 1980s when it wasn’t legal to ride there.

    Yes, count me in. I would love to finally be a part of this.

    OK, just looked at Google Maps, and it shows Saratoga Gap as being in the middle of four houses off of Heather Heights Road… yeah, I’ve never driven in those peoples’ yards before. I guess I don’t know where Saratoga Gap is—is it really in these peoples’ yards???

    WTHDUDE. You been under a rock? Don't know where the Gap is? Oh boy. ;-)

    Corner of hwy 35 and hwy 9.

    BTW, the trail is really narrow, so bring a regular bike with regular sized tires. ;-)

    No biggee if not, I’m just not sure where it is—see my initial post within this thread as to where Google Maps is showing me where to go in those peoples’ front yards.

    OK, seriously??? I’ve consumed many substances in that parking lot from the late 1980s through the mid 1990s. I’d never noticed any trails near there before.

    Man, you guys have to stop posting these rides with a question mark.

    First post should be (at the very minimum):
    TNGR 5/9. Be there!

    Yep. Maybe, if i can, I'll try to be there if I'm there and it's not too much traffic and my powerpoint goes well.

    Let me put it this way. I'm at home since the doctor stuck a needle in my gaddem dead finger. So I'll be there and I need a beer.

    Flat pedals. Dead giveaway brah.

    The famous and esteemed Mr. Porkstacker will be here? I also hear some guy on a skinny-tired bike will be there. Probably made out of bamboo and featuring Di2...

    I'll be there.
