    A colleague gave me a Kermit Pez dispenser today, so I guess that's a sign I should be Kermit. Plus, that'll allow me to reuse the green base layer from my 2017 costume. Now I'm off to find a Bluetooth speaker so that I can play "Bein' Green" and "Rainbow Connection" on an infinite loop during the ride...

    Komorebi De Frog. That costume has gotten some mileage.

    So it sounds like everyone is leaning pretty heavy to characters from the Muppets. Any thoughts on going exclusively Muppet Show versus the Jim Henson universe of muppet characters?

    I'm pretty certain the Great Pumpkin ride is chock full of Sesame Street and Muppet connoisseurs, so we probably need to think this through pretty carefully--in order to avoid derision from them all.

    I dunno how many others around here wear adult diapers but remember that muppet babies is also an option.

    Steve is right. After all, it has been done before.

    Oh, just to put it out there ~ On account of my having basically not ridden my bike at all this year, I signed up for and plan to do the short route. I had more fun last year when we did the short route and spent more time eating and drinking because of the (turns out not so) bad weather. Does it still count as a single ride if you spend 5 or 6 hours at the brewery pit stop?

    I also signed up for the shorter route for the same reason.

    I'm OK with a shorter route - this hasn't been a big riding year for me either.

    Registered, and costume started.
