Yup, Mellow Mushroom Freedom Forty Ride. Keith Stewart was talking about riding up for the start and then breaking off when they get close to Fayetteville.
Maybe some local mountain biking? open all morning.. the mellow mushroom is too far away
There is a small group of guys wanting to ride local. Road, 2 hours chill pace. I might join them. Let me know if you do a MTB ride that sounds pretty good as well.
