    The Shore Fire Century is canceled as a result of the Governor’s declared State of Emergency which affects part of the bike route. Those who pre-registered for the ride will receive additional information within the week.

    Many thanks to all who have worked to prepare for the ride (e.g. marking the route and checking the route), and who volunteered to help with registration, rest stops, SAGs, etc.  Particular thanks to Cindy and Tom Mannis for all their planning over the last few months.

    We discussed options such as running a reduced Shore Fire, or rescheduling, but none seemed feasible. See you at the Savage Century (October 15) or at next year’s major rides!

    Frank Warnock pedaled and previewed the Shore Fire Century route on Friday, Aug. 26, only to find out later it had to be cancelled for Saturday. Above is his GPS track as seen on Google Earth. For those who regret missing this year’s event, download the Qsheet in pdf or the GPS file in gdb (Right click, save link as…)
