Ronit, Julie, Adrian, Bob, Paul-Brian, Jason, and Tim all stuck it to the man (or the sucky economy, or to themselves for the lucky self-employed) on Thursday to attempt a pre-ride of the "WEMS": 3-hour course.  Leaving behind a fifty degree and rainy Chicago, the clouds parted at the state border for our crew who enjoyed the rewards of a sunny warm day on the trail.  Attempts to ride the course were foiled by downed trees and other nonsense on the trail connecting orange back to blue, but pre-ride or not, it was an awesome day.  Half Acre's expecting to make a big showing at Saturday's race.  See y'all at Muir tomorrow!
