A few more than we had last year. Even with 1000's of bikes around, you get a group that big together, it always turns some heads.

I still have people in my office asking about it. I guess it helps that I have a map above my head for inspiration. A few have approached me at the gym as well. Could be nice to bring more riders.

The more the merrier to some extent.... we can just split into smaller groups if need be. But if it's like last year most will go as a group, some will kick back and just do their own thing in a smaller group and then we all will chill in the evenings. It's about miles of smiles this(that) weekend. I know that we have a few guys with as much or MORE knowledge there than me so I can follow/lead/get outt a the way whatever I need. @chevyman_ky I know can give Great ideas on routes and local knowledge

It could be beneficial two have at least two groups so that different routes could be run if some don't want to run certain roads.

Possibly two more.
Last year a friend and I camped nearby in Robbinsville and we got to meet up with the other HSN riders a bit, but didn't get to ride to ride with the group.

So far, my schedule looks free and the wife is happy to get me out of the house.
If my friend's schedule is good (his wife is probably happy to get him out of the house, too.) we're going to give it a shot.

We should know soon.

So, I can give y'all a definite, emphatic, maybe at this point. Fingers crossed.
