    Let’s go big and dirty Saturday, October 24th. 9:00 am @ Loblaws Redway.

    All welcome (assuming you can ride/socialize for 7ish hours). Bring a lunch, snacks, lots of water and tools.

    Rain date Nov 7th.

    Apres: TBD.

    Route: TBD, but I think the emphasis will be on more trails and less bushwhacking this year. Though it seems to me that it is not a dirty ride without getting your hands dirty a little.

    Who’s in??

    Meeting a dog breeder the 24th and hitting Durham in the afternoon, so out this go around. If it goes to rain date though I’m 100% in!

    Enjoy the ride… And it really isn’t BDDR without at least a little bushwhacking. It’s a great reminder how good we all have it. Thanks builder/maintainers!

    I’m in.

    Can we count on @veteran_youth to take us to some less-traveled paths?

    Looking forward to the ride this Saturday! A few details:

    Weather: Should clear up by mid-week, and looks like it should be OK Saturday? (fingers crossed)

    Apres: Given the dropping temperatures, spotty weather, and the food/beer logistics after a 7 hour ride, I’d like to host another apres. Beer is on me as long as you confirm that you will be coming in advance so I have enough! pm me or post up. I’d like to drink and socialize more this year so why don’t we order from Greenwood Smokehouse http://greenwoodsmokehouse.com/menu/ Awesome food, and they deliver. Also, feel free to come by before the ride and leave a jacket/warmer clothes if you want. I’ll have a few hoodies on hand again.

    Route: Last year we missed out on some good trail in the East that I think we should try to get in this year. I’m thinking: Tuesday Route>North(?)>South via Kitchen Sink>STD>Bunny/Climbmax/Boo>Motown>Quads>Boomerang>Hydrocut/T.Loop

    Should be a good one!

    PS: @trail_head – so are you flirting with goth chicks in the home depot again, or are we riding trails this weekend!?

    Thanks for organizing and hosting the apres @marley!! I think ordering BBQ is one of the best ideas you ever had.

    I’m super stoked for the day! My fingers and toes are crossed we miss the rain.

    Hey Chris, It was nice to bump into Christine! I’m hoping to join for parts of the ride/apres. I’ve got my kids so can’t go full route.

    I pick up my new bike on Friday evening. I hope I can take it out on it’s maiden voyage on Saturday. The latest forecast does not look promising for Saturday. I am in for both the ride and Apres if the weather holds up.

    Sounds good @trail_head, @micah356 and @baillout. Greenwood Smokehouse makes fine BBQ – I think you will approve @whisky_cactus!

    Unfortunately, the weather does indeed look a little grim for Saturday at this point. Let’s see what the forecast looks like tomorrow.
