That's the day I head out of town for vacation. Otherwise yes. Saturday I have to sit with the kids.

Thanks for the effort.

Re: 8/30/09 Detroit / Livonia / Northville / Dearborn meet and ride

I just got back from a ride. N Territorial was under resurfacing on the west end. They scrapped up a layer of asphalt but there was a ton of loose crap left over. I had to slow way down because I couldn't tell the scrapped asphalt from the loose. Other than the mound in the middle of the road.

Basically did Huron River to N Territorial or Stockbridge to Hell and back. Nice day for riding.
