    Default Bobco's last week. Let's make it a doozy!

    We need to give Bob S a proper send off. Many of you were unable to attend the happy hour a couple of weeks ago.

    I was thinking we need to do one either Wednesday or Thursday this week. Undoubtedly some of you will be unable to attend one or the other.

    So let's do both!!!!

    Unless he protests we will have two (2) happy hours this week in his honor. Attendance is compulsory for only one.

    Wednesday, September 6
    Quarterdeck in Rosslyn

    Thursday, September 7
    Bob's choice. Bob - pick a spot.

    We'll start at the customary 5 - 5:30ish

    Thank you, Steve O, for doing this.

    As far as seeing everyone one last time with beer before I leave, could we do just Thursday at Quarterdeck? I am grateful but don't want to overstretch this going away stuff (it feels like only yesterday that I gave the news I'd be leaving).

    Since the big 50 States Ride is Saturday (sadly I am not participating), I want to do a casual morning ride on Sunday (9 am start) with folks where I plan on using a couple of routes that have some personal significance to me ending with a nice lunch before I spend the rest of the day with family. This will be my last ride in Virginia before I go. Tuesday evening I will finalize the route, but would folks be interested in that, too?

    Hope to see y'all before I go!

    Unfortunately (or fortunately?), I am doing my first cross race of the season on Sunday, so I would miss out on the ride.

    So I am definitely down for a happy hour. Because Bobco is so awesome, I would even skip my Thursday mountain bike ride for it.

    I'm so glad there's a second chance! I'd missed the previous one...

    Due to 50 States on Saturday, I'll be at the WABA Volunteer night on Wednesday to help prepare for it, so that's out for me. Thursday at the Quarterdeck works really well for me though.

    I think I can do Sunday morning if I can finangle going to church after 50 States. Put me down as a solid maybe!

    Let's combine the easy social ride with the Bicycle Fan Club ride on Sunday. I'll post a starting time and location (we'll even visit a historical site, in honor of Bob!) tonight.
    Anyone may come on the ride, whether or not you are coming to the game (tickets still available!).

    Ride should be 20ish miles total and easy pace.


    (Bob - if you want to attend the game, your ticket is on me.)

    Bob & I have been communicating. In honor of him, the Fan Club Ride will follow his route. Here are the details. Riders may join the ride at any point:


    • (optional) 8ish - Pre-ride coffee at Best Buns

      • 8:40 sharp - Depart best Buns

    • 8:59am - Bluemont Caboose - Official start of Bobco's Goodbye Ride
    • 9:20-9:25 - Bluemont Caboose flyby for late-comers
    • 10:40ish - Eisenhower Statue, east end of Eisenhower Avenue
    • 11:00ish - S. end of Eads St. at 4-Mile Run Trail
      • 6-7 minutes later - Pentagon City Whole Foods flyby

    • 11:20-11:45 - Arrive in vicinity of ballpark


    Then lunch with Bob (venue TBD). Game goers will head to the ballpark about 1pm. Bob & all others may stay and eat/drink as long as you like.
