That works for me. Anyone who wants to ride with me, please send me where you would like to meet, so I can plan the best route and figure out what time we should arrange to meet up. You can ping me separately if you like so we don't spam the list or have addresses recorded. I'll have 3 seats, 4 if someone doesn't mind the middle in the back, so first-come first-served.
I think given the greater interest in Denver and the fact we'll have better participation there, it would probably be wise to move it back there. Any objections to that?
