Big Fall Ride VII!

Is this really going to be year number 7 for Big Fall Ride?  Sunday 9/30.  Meeting at Redstone Cyclery at 7:30am.  We'll get Lyons peeps to shuttle everyone up to Bunce School Road, then you get to ride back to Lyons on about as much dirt as possible.  Expect LOTS of climbing and even more descending.  Here's the goods from 2010:

The grill and brews will be waiting at the shop for post ride festivities!  Hope to see some of your smiling faces out there!
