This Spring weather is not co-operating with us going up to Mt. Ham.  We'll try again in the summer when its warmer. 

This is our annual Mt. Ham climb. Normally this ride is held in Spring.  Weather pending as we won't know until closer.  Please bring a windbreaker for the thrilling downhill, can be a bit cold.

This is a long climb, we'll be spread all over the road. Instead of a fixed start time, we'll have a fixed top time.  Target to meet up at the top for photo at 11:00AM.  
Normally, if you are faster than me, it'll take you 1:50 to 2 hrs to get up.  I'll be around 2:10.

Please register so that we know approx how many of you are coming. Ride wheels-up no later than 9:00AM.
