Please don't post response not related to the thread's heading. TYVM

My family is in the final stage of moving back to Maryland. After 5  years of living in Florida and meeting with good people and avoiding bad ones  we have decided to stay close to my wife's family and where our jobs are more  secure.


I  have meet with wonderful individuals and spent great time with them. Living in  Florida made me more aware the diversity this country has. We might not  share the same ideals but the same zealous to live life to the fullest bonds us. 

I  thank you for accepting me to be a part of your life even for a short while. I  will cherish the miles we ride and hike, the pain we endured, the embarrassment we  felt, the personal failure we suffered, the physical injury we nursed, the silly  things we fought over, the pride we wore on each ride, the respect and the lack  of to our skills and abilities, and the joy we experienced.


I  hope I brought the good on each of you because you did make me a better person.


So  after the BS…I am looking to setup a farewell ride at Croom on June the 5th  Saturday. Rollout at 9am from the Fire Tower. I have nothing to offer except for  your accomplishment riding in one of Florida’s best trail. Bring your own preferred  post ride beverages and snacks. This will be a hammerfest and may the strongest  rider gets to the parking lot first. Everyone is invited.

The  route will be the whole Blue Loop.

I  hope you guys will make it.
 
Thank You
Treadlight aka Morisson

Looking forward to spending one last spin at Croom with you foo!  But definately not a farewell type of ride.  I know I will ride with you somewhere in the SE in the future.  If not on this world, at the next one.  But hopefully not soon for that one.   ;D
 
I would lend you my ss Celeste but is at the shop waiting for the Reba 29er fork to come back.  If done by then, I'll let you know.

How long of a steerer tube you need? You can use my Reba (you do run a CK headset don't you?), I would hate for TL to be relegated to riding kiddie wheels...

edit: I'll try to be there, but too soon to commit...

On the Flight, I have the original headset.  Only CK on Opti...  I have the steel fork that came with it.  I've been planning to put it back on anyway.  If my reba hasn't come back, i'll put it on and make it rigid for him.  He will have a 29ss at the ride if he wants.
 
BTW, there are some nice tables under the shade at the firetower.  Maybe we can grilled a few bratz (not sure if they make veggie ones :- ) to wash down with some fine adult drinks?  I don't have a portable grill though but I will gladly bring some bratz and cooler full of drinks.

I'll be on my way to N.C. on the 5th, or I would be there. You have my best wishes, and stay in touch. You will be missed.

As long as I can get out of work I'm in.
My bike is more than a toy; it's my vessel.

TL, i'll have my 29er Redline Flight ready for you.  Rigid and all.  However, one of the crankbrother pedals is frozen solid.  Get there early so you can try to remove it.  If not, you will have to wear my shoes.  They are size 43 = 9.5 us.  Oh the wheels are stock with tubes so they are heavish.
