Re: [RC] [RC] Cancelled rides in the PS - Lori Bertolucci

I have noticed that more are coming into being.
I, personally, like multidays, after spending a week at Ft Schellbourne.
It is a very different atmosphere, and I felt like I was really on a special vacation.
But, I will continue doing one day rides as long as I can make it to them...to help support the RM's. If I think it is pricey for me to drive once to the ridecamp, think how many times the ride managers have to do it to just set up the ride!
