Question Afternoon rides?

I work mornings and I get home early in the after noon. Everyone always makes their group rides in the morning.

Can the forest rides or the livingston rides be in the afternoon for once? Like 3pm?


Oh and the crabb river ride. Never been on it but look at it on the map. Looks fun. Afternoon that bad boy too.

All I'm saying is can we get some afternoon rides for us morning working folk?

The only problem I have with evening rides is traffic. I tried once to get to the forest. More traffic than I expected riding 149, etc.

I have read your posts... You seem like those "OMG I dragged knee" fellows. You people scare me.

I just want to master the art of not eating pavement so often.

Plus I have finals today. Can't bro. Thanks for the offer.

They dont like us sportbike folks, no matter what speed we are riding or even stopped at a gas station.

I would say that half of our group are in the moderate pace and sometimes we have new riders joining our SMRs so we take it a little slower during those rides.

They do a great job w leadership and waiting for the group.

I was limited by speed and someone was always within sight or behind me that knew the route.
