Our friend Sean Morrison, team captain for the Physician's Mutual BOCC team is organizing a group ride to work on Tuesday the 28th, followed by a group ride back after work to attend the Shindig:

"There are several of us planning a group ride from there to downtown in the morning for those that want to join (snaking through Elmwood Park and across on Leavenworth).  As well, we will likely have cars in the covered parking of Aksarben Village.  We will be meeting at the Liv Lounge patio and riding out at 7am."

Sean reports that all are welcome; if you live east of the Aksarben Village area, watch for the commuter peleton to be rolling down Leavenworth and join in the fun.   

Hope to see you there!  Lots to celebrate!!

I plan to ride out from midtown (almost downtown) tomorrow morning to meet the the Physician's Mutual team at Aksarben Village.

I'm also gathering a group to ride out of downtown around Union Pacific Center Tuesday afternoon. I hope we can all hook up, but if not, we'll see you there.

We'll keep an eye out for you on the way in.

As for riding out of downtown - we were planning to leave our building at 26th & Dodge about 5:10 - then heading south to Leavenworth to get to Jimi Ds. Hopefully that timing works out for you. The more the merrier.
