    This is the best road ride you'll ever do on the Worest Day of the Year. Let's see a big group of mountain bikers!

    I've been thinking about doing this for a couple of weeks now; there's a couple people at work who will be riding it too. I just need to get the road bike running again (or any bike, for that matter). I might be in Eugene that day though, and given the decent weather that's predicted for next weekend, I'd be more inclined to bring an MTB with me down there and check out some trails. Haven't been off road in nearly a year
