We're doing something different this year. Leave your camping gear at home and pack an extra liver. We got a block of rooms reserved at an ocean front hotel. When those are gone, there are more. We'll be closest to the beach than we've ever been. All the food and drink we need is within a couple blocks from the hotel. Who cares about the weather, we won't be sleeping in it. Two nights with a group ride Saturday afternoon. There will be a bonfire and a big party, or two...

As always, there will be group rides out of Eugene and Portland. So if you're from outside Oregon, keep you eyes open for a ride to join. We'll announce a couple in August.
