Postponed due to snow.
Wheels up from the Marshall Park-n-ride at 10AM SHARP. Some variant of the traditional "Blue Ridger" with a climb up to the Mt Weather Doomsday shelter and an ascent of Blue Mountain (5 miles, hard-packed dirt--totally fine for 23mm tires. Then back to Marshall either on 55 or on via Hume.
Pace will be reasonable and conversational. (Some of us are racing on Sunday). Route is malleable in any case.
Please--leave yourself enough time to get ready once after you get there. If you need a 1/2 hour to apply your embrocation and chamois cream (not in that order) plan to get there at 9:30. Don't pull into the parking lot at 09:58.
Burgers and more socializing afterwards in Marshall.
