    Not sure why, but immediate subscribers to the Ride Forum don't receive my post when I attach a .pdf route map.  So replying to the thread to push it out (daily subscribers seem to work fine).

    Also, note the late start time at 1:30 pm - to allow for plans folks might otherwise have during Easter morning.
