OK Guys, week 3 of the early bird ride. This is what I'm thinking. Give me some feedback.

Do a southwest loop. Usual start, Tim Horton's on Telegraph in Flat Rock. Head out to Adrian for breakfast at Alpha Koney Island and back to Tim Horton's in Flat Rock. This is about 115 miles overall. As usual, kickstands up at 7am.

There is only a B & C listed on the map. A is the same place as C. Start & Finish at Timmy's.

Here is a map of what I'm suggesting:

Other suggestions? I'm open to most anything so let's hear 'em.

Hey, if you're in Fred, we can go counterclockwise and pick you up right at your house, I think we will ride right past your place. PM me your address, and I can figure out approximate time we'll be there.

See what Kramer has to say about helping someone move:

1. HeyFiretaz419 (http://www.twowheelmichigan.com/member.php?1263-Firetaz419) I’m going that way about 5:00am fromWaterford. I think telegraph may be the best route for me.

Jim, do you think you need to leave that early? It's about an hour ride from Waterford to Flat Rock. Gonna get there mighty early if you head out at 5 aren't ya?

Week 3 is On! Sounds like we'll have between 3 & 6 riders depending on who is able to roll out of bed.

We'll do a southwest loop. Start at Tim Horton's on Telegraph near Vreeland in Flat Rock. Head out to Adrian for breakfast at Alpha Koney Island and back to Tim Horton's in Flat Rock. This is about 105 miles overall. As usual, meet at 6:45, kickstands up at 7am.

Well we had a good ride this morning. Firetaz419, Owl, and myself met up at the Timmy's in Flat Rock. Took a nice ride through Milan, then Tecumseh, and had breakfast in Adrian. We got caught by the gravel surprise. Apparently they are getting ready to do something to Willow Road, so they have coated the road with stones/gravel. Made for an interesting few miles.

Anyway - as they say, without pics the thread is worthless, so here goes:

Ready to hit the road for the trip home

We didn't manage to find any twisties along the way. Just a straight shot back on M50 to Telegraph. But we had a great time, with great company.

Looking forward to next week. Jim (Owl) says he might put something together for a ride in the northern burbs. Hope to see some of you there!
