Non-tapering Bubbas will get a chance to get on top with the warm weather as we ride Signal and Mowbry via an old favorite: Henson Gap. Roll at 8:30 from the old Pizza Hut across from Merv’s (Old Kmart/Aldi center – oil folks whined about us parking in the center itself). SPIN up the W (we’ll divide into groups of 2 or 3 so as not to make motorists angry), Marshall Creek gorge, off the back of Signal (ouch), up Henson, across Mowbry by the 10 longest miles (double ouch), down Montlake, and back. Simmer down fellers, this is a hard route and you’ll have plenty of chances to show Saturday ain’t for cornbread eatin once we get up Henson. (Please remember that TB rides are intended to be hard GROUP rides, not races.) A metric and 5000 feet but it’ll seem like much more.
