Ok, so we're almost there, the Wheelers' Mufferaw Joe is almost upon us. Here are a couple updates from the organizers:
There will be meat and vegetarian chili provided apres, as well as bread made by John Large, Master Baker.
Tall Tree Cycles has donated a fresh Brooks B17 Special in Honey Brown with copper rivets as a door prize. Sweet.
The Wheelers would like to stress that the 7-person format is not required. If you've got friends to ride with, great, but don't let a lack of comrades keep you from coming. There will be all sorts of groups to ride in. Tall Tree will have a team of mixed abilities present, possibly enough to form a second team by pulling a few solo riders in. No worries, its not a race.
Here's the info from the Wheelers site:
