    Hi all, I wanted to give everyone an update on the two runs and not just update the event page… First things first.

    Please be sure to update your reservation if you plan to cancel as I am giving the restaurants an update the day prior (13th and 21nd respectively). 

    So, as goes with some of these things snags do occur. Angela, Joe, and I did a draft run and due to a high traffic section (due to weekend apple picking) we had to make an adjustment. No biggie as that’s part of the deal usually and why we do this… We also picked up a nice twisty section so it all balanced out.

    The big change is the ending for the first run, October 14th happens to be Parents Day at UCONN and the endpoint was a place close to UCONN. Well, that is no longer the case and we have a good new endpoint along with a slightly different last 1/4th of the overall drive. Luckily we found this out due to discussions with the owner of the place that will be the endpoint for the run on the 22nd.

    So the two runs will be different but I will publish both of the details once the run is done.

    Another update…

     

    There is a really good reason a pre-run just before the event is a good thing.

     

    Road closure!!…and not just for an afternoon!!  slight re-route and all is well.

     

    Nice little 107 mile jaunt thru the countryside…lots of leefs to peep…twisty bits and cruise type roads.  looks like the weather is going to co-operate and it should be a nice day

    I have an empty seat if someone wants to ride along…see you all in the morning!
