Anybody want up for a ride on Sunday? Looks like the weather is going to cooperate.

A few of us were talking about meeting at the IHOP in Leesburg around 10:00 AM for breakfast and heading out for a short ride. Here is the address for the restaurant:

980 Edwards Ferry Rd NE
Leesburg, VA 20176

Cliff suggested IHOP. Ask him how he gets his discount. Something about being a mature and dignified fellow.

I saved the Mapquest route from Peonian Springs (Just outside of Leesburg) to Charles Town I put together a couple of years ago. We never got a chance to try out this route. The loop-trip is about 60 miles and would take about 1 hour-45 minutes (without any stops). We could always spend some time at the casino or racetrack, if anybody has an interest.

Here is a link to the map.

(You will need to copy and paste it to your browser. Not sure how to make this into a one click hyperlink).

If I get time, I may drive the route on Saturday, just to make sure the roads are still in good shape.

You never know what I might show up on. It might be the 1973 Honda CB450 I just acquired. I'd like to put some miles on it just to see what parts are going to fall off.

We have 4-5 people interested in the run so far. Let me know if you think you can make it out on Sunday.

Best Regards,
