4th annual Black Friday ride

This is a fun ride.

You can see carryings on about past BF rides here.

The basic deal is that it's a trail ride on Black Friday. Unless it snows like a mutha as it did on year one; then it's not a trail ride. 

A little dusting is ok. Rain is fine too.

Anyway, the ride is a fairly brisk pace and sort of technical. Here's my canonical BF ride description and disclaimer post. Please read it if you've not ridden a BF ride before and plan on showing up.

Here's the plan this year:
  • Leave The Scoop at 8:30 am. For planning purposes: I wouldn't assume that The Scoop is open.
  • Same route: the first part of The NW Passage.
  • Much better ending plan this year: we're landing at River City Brewing's new brew pub down on 1st and Cedar. Gage says it will be done. Or close enough for us. Goal is to get there at around 11:30.

I have done Black Friday rides in Freeport Me. many of the past years. This year however the Black Friday tradition will be broken because I am forced to be on a plane to Hawaii. Dam it.

Alas, I will have to ride vicariously through you. Do us justice.
