****A word about tomorrow's ride, bring lights front and rear! With Daylight's savings time in effect tomorrow, it will be getting near dusk if not sundown depending on when people finish tomorrow. Sunset is supposed to be at 5:30, so come prepared and be smart. A flashing front and rear light are suggested.****
