Hi Bikers.

Are you ready for another great biking season?  We'll have a mild warmup (no pun intended) ride this week heading south through the Valley Club and back to town with a side trip up Greenhorn Gulch.  Part of the ride will be on 75 on a very wide biking berm as the path from Gimlet to East Fork is being paved.  For those down valley you can catch the peloton at Gimlet and 75.  Start at the Ketchum post office at 9:30 this Wednesday, July 1.   

Responses appreciated.
