    June 7-8 in New Glarus looks pretty good for me as well. Still have to do some negotiating on release time :)

    Yes, but I won't need a room.

    Me neither. I'll drive down to New Glarus early Saturday and then home Saturday night as I live about 15 miles north in Verona.

    If anyone just needs a place to crash Friday or Saturday, our guest room is available. PM if needed/interested.

    Votes?
    I can make either work. The festival sounds fun!

    Is anybody still interested in this?
    We could do a June 14th "2 Brewery Ride" New Glarus to Monroe and Back.

    Jon, great idea -- thanks for keeping this alive. Already committed this weekend, but keep trying to get us together -- still lots of good fall riding left! I have to see your awesome blue w/mango Max in the flesh!

    Have plans for a longer ride with a friend down south this weekend but hope you'll all do it again sometime so I can join you. Spring Green is less than 20 miles from me so it'd be easy for me to join you.

    I'm alive and still living and riding in and around Madison. With the shitstorm we are with COVID and the hot/humid weather, not sure we're all gonna get together anytime soon... but would love to when it's possible

    Pretty much the same as Wisco (albeit a hundred miles or so NE of him). However, my ti GP is being appreciated by a new owner in Vermont, so I am pigless.

    While not a “pig owner”, I am a Madisonian! It would be fun after all this Covid stuff clears to have a ride.

    Wait, is there a formal ride or just a ride for VS users?

    I'm relatively new to Madison (only been here for one year) but would like to tag along, whenever this pandemic thing is over.

    Nothing formal, just a discussion about getting together in and around Madison or the State. Teleguy57 and I met up at the Dairy Roubaix ride a few years ago and had fun putting a face to a name while comparing our Hampstens. Issac runs a top class bike shop in Madison, and I am also a Madison local who has benefited from his shop's expertise.

    As you said, it would be fun to put together a Midwest/Wisconsin/Madison get together ride when we're past this pandemic. So many good people here and always fun to ride, drink beer/coffee and swap stories.
