    Details (RL read field instructions carefully): 

    Possible Venue Change At the Ride Start  ... I'll be driving to the ride start on Belle Meade road before 9 AM ... if the trail is too muddy I'll be heading east ... will try Brookhaven State Park and then Calverton if necessary. If you'tre running late give me a shout on my cell and we will wait before riding or adise about change of venue.

    Not that cool yet but the 40 mph wind gusts will make the road a bit more sketchy ... starting at 9 AM to allow folks to get here and not battle the commuting traffic. Also, since it's supposed to rain on Wednesday evening I will not ride the east side of Belle Meade if its muddy ... we'll do the Westside simple loop and maybe a bit more. 

    Lots of folks avoid East Setauket as it has a good deal of technical and hilly sections BUT there are also milder single track sections that many riders can handle when keeping the speed down. Come along and I will be more than willing to wait if you want to walk any section that you feel is above you pay grade!

    Lots of the trail is pretty wide and ticks will not be a problem unless you dive into the bush ... Also, I will have bug spray available before the ride. 

    For faster and more skilled riders please look at the ride level ... you will be out ahead of the group I lead that will go at the slowest rider's pace.  No one will be left behind in the woods! 

    Check back to this posting early Thursday morning ... as Life Happens and Things Change.
