What an IBA coincidence
« on: June 19, 2011, 08:03:48 pm »
So here I am in Tacoma, WA, after riding an IBA CC 50 to get here and spending a week and a half. Getting ready to ride back home to RI tomorrow and was reviewing the forum yesterday when (much to my surprise) I read about someone attending the start of the 2011 IBA in..... Seattle, WA! Imagine my surprise as that is only about 40 miles north of where I am at the moment. My son and I took a ride up to walk around the hotel; saw a bunch of IBA folks and got to meet some people I had known of but never met before. I am leaving tomorrow morning to head home (RI) but will shoot north to watch the start of the 2011 IBA. What a treat.

So . . . when are you going to post a mile-x-mile report on your CC50? Or at least as much of it as you remember?

I'm pretty sure BDF was planning on telling these tales from the road around the fire pit at the COG national.

Just another good reason to plan on being at the Green Mtn National, Aug 8th - 12th.
