Whoa, this sounds cool! Unfortunately I can't make it tonight, my oldest son is getting an academic award at his high school and I gotta be there - kids! (Actually, I'm really proud of him and wouldn't miss it for the world) Anyway, let me know what you guys think, this would be something to do with mrs j sometime, she might be into it.

I don't care where we start, just give me coordinates for parking. But if there's any hills, make sure they are downhill on the way back. Very Happy

Couldn't take the front tire off and cram the bike in the backseat?

Sounds like it will just be the three musketeers finding 15+ caches today! I can feel the work day going by slower already. Very Happy

15 to 20, who's counting! Smile That's why I was wondering about lights along the trail. Anyone else know?

I'll be taking flashlights... biking at night on trails can be fun-- minus the whole hitting bats thing. I was thinking we'd cache/bike on the way out and just ride back while we've less sunlight.

Of course, finding them at night would be easier Razz

Lets see if I got this right. You are NOT meeting at K mart but the other parking coords. At 5:00 PM I have 17 waypoints loaded with bikeathon seris anything else? Cool

No lights along the trail. Sometime in the open, sometime down in a valley. Take lights. Remember the laws when crossing the roads. If you don't have lights on your bikes don't use the highway to get back to the car.

Good Luck. I'd join you but, I've done 95% of the already.

Correct (I think Wink ) We're meeting near the Bikeathon - Mill's link that GP posted earlier, and we're meeting there at 5 for the caches that we could pull up without having Pocket Queries available yesterday. And grabbing at least snacky food on the way to the meeting, perhaps food after or not, depending on when after turns out to be Laughing

Just don't sneak up on my right side! Cool It's not like I look like a trained Bear on a bike! I can see where they could mix up the two... Bear...Yeti....Yeti....Bear....
