This ride is soooooo sweeeet. Helena strung together all the best roads up there...many still freshly paved from last season...perhaps there will still be some mustard flowers lingering in the valley...

Miles o smiles under the helmets!! :grin:

Nooo..keep it at this time..I don't think we leave on time usually and this is a long ride..given our long ride to the meeting spot adding to our day..and the meeting itself..earlier the better..my vote!

It's earlier than we've left in the past, so I was only confirming it wasn't a typo. I will have a group with me, we're good to go!
