I edited the subject line to say ď5:30?Ē since thatís the first time Iíve seen posted. Again, once you all concur, I think sir_zman can remove the question mark, since his was the first post, or I'll do it once you come to an agreeement.

I dont' see any way I can make it home from work that fast...I usually work till 5. Can we all do 6:30? If not, I'll put it back at 5:30 and just get up early.

Anytime is fine with me as long as we don't mind searching in the dark towards the end.

6:30 might have us caching in the dark. Cool I'd go for 6:00 though.

I just finished driving the route..and I think it is too ambitious...I'm going to try to re-work it a bit and re-post tonight...I just think that we were going to be tackeling too many hills, over too far a space to bike...it seemed fine on paper, but when I actually did it, it was pretty hard core.

We did about 15 miles last week in about 4 hours and there was only a couple small hills so 7 to 10 miles with a few big hills would be ok with me. That's what 1st gear is for. Smile

Enjoy...

P.S. I'm changing the start time to 6:00PM per your requests.
Not sure about bike safety when we are at dinner...you may want a chain or something.....

If anyone is open to this idea, the Plaza Maplewood (about 2 miles from the Target we are meeting at) is a second run movie theater, so they show slightly older movies (after the main theaters stop showing them, but before DVD) for $1.50. They are showing the movie "ULTRAVIOLET" at 9:30 PM, or "FIREWALL" at 8:45, perhaps after a nice bike ride, you would be interested in a movie...for $1.50 plus cheap popcorn and pop, you can't go wrong.

Hmm... that's less than half a mile from my place. If you decide to go, I'd be up for the movie anyway (I'd rather see Ultraviolet, but whatever). Shoot, I'll go one better, I'd spring for the movie admission for the first finder from the group for Monk and Binary Blunders (I know, a whole 3 dollars, ooooooo!).
