This is an early invitation for local riders to join some of us in a 100 mile ride in Park Rapids, MN on Saturday, Sept. 24,2011. For more detailed information on this event go to the website www.itascatur.org. This has become an annual tradition for MIT riders with at least a dozen of us going each year, counting spouses. Rob (a.k.a. “sprocketman” ) has checked for the usual hotel reservations at C’Mon Inn and they are booked up, so he is making further inquiries at other Park Rapids hotels. He also has room for a couple of passengers plus bikes. My wife and I will be staying in our camper van this time so wil not be staying in the hotel. It might be a good idea to use the comment section of this post to indicate whether you’re going and whether you need a ride, and then a block of rooms can be reserved at one of the hotels (Super 8 or AmericInn).
