    I'm planning on strapping my bonsai tree on to my handlebars.

    I'm hoping to make it! Though I can't stay for lunch, so no worries about the headcount for that.

    I've been in secret communication with Kitty through the Navajo Code Talkers used to confound the Japanese in the Pacific Theater during World War II. The ride is still on tomorrow and has some interesting stops to places you've never been to. It's going to be a bit windy so everyone is getting extra badass points assigned tomorrow.

    I'm planning on strapping wings to my handlebars - does flying above the streets count for Freezing Saddles?

    Alas, Melinda's flight got cancelled (probably a good thing, considering what flying was reportedly like today) so she won't be joining us, but I still have a yen for a bike ride!

    Mine must be a "game time decision". I have to do my risk assessment with the wind on the 14th St. Bridge, & look at Metrorail options to The Yards.

    Konbanwa minna-san! As Judd mentioned, the genro and I have been talking, and we are planning on this happening tomorrow.

    That said, everyone should make their own assessment as to safety and comfort based on conditions on the ground. I am currently planning on doing the full ride as scheduled, but if we collectively decide while we're underway that we are no longer having fun, we can bail out to Swings and I can finish the talk there.

    Regardless, please come prepared for a cold, blustery day. Bring warm gear, bring snacks (food keeps you warm), bring your Smartip in case you need to head home.

    Two programming notes:
    1. I didn't have any luck getting ahold of the restaurant this week. I'll call them from the final stop with our headcount. If its a no-go then I suggest Umi in Woodley Park as the fall-back option.
    2. After this, I will head home to VA, but want to make a Beeroneuring pitstop at Heritage in Clarendon (because craft beer is new to Japan and not a lot of it is here yet). If anyone wants to join me, and maybe buy the tour-girl a drink, I wouldn't be opposed.

    De wa, matta ashita! (^o^)/~

    Not going to make it, heading to Richmond at some point. Hope you all have a great ride.
