    Here is Shawnshank's annual list of summer events that would make for good group ride opportunities. I plan on checking them out on my mb. If you are interested in joining me then reply and we'll go from there. If not then it will be like every other year and I will go by myself. lol

    What: Bike Show and Swap Meet
    Where: Dudley Do Right Flea Market - 10 West main St. Dudley Ma. 01571
    When: Sunday May 15th
    Time: 11:00am - Not sure
    I met the owner of the Mill that houses the flea market. He has a massive collecton of vintage bikes and some very rare one's too. It's worth the trip just to check out his bikes and look around.

    What: Laconia Bike Week
    Where: Laconia, NH
    When: Saturday June 11th thru Sunday June 19th.
    Time: From Noon on the 11th on
    How funny would it be to ride through Bike week on MB's? C'mon lets do it.

    What: Bike Show and Swap Meet
    Where: The Larz Anderson Auto Museum - 15 Newton St. Brookline Ma. 02445
    When: Saturday August 20th 2011

    1 & 3 look good for me, not two sure about 2.
    I'll keep an eye on your post.
    Right now I hope to make the Pa & delaware get togethers.
    Last year I tried to get a Ma, ride going, with no luck!

    I agree it is tough to get a ride going around here. I've tried more than once and have only had some luck the first time.
    If you are in the Boston area we should just pick a random day to get together for a ride and still keep these others on the burner as well.
    Let me know your thoughts and we'll see if we can't get together some time.
