Roster Update and Help needed

Some updates:

Nick and Ken are in, Nick got his bike back after some sketchy Craig's list posting.

see the story here: http://bike-pgh.org/xdforum/viewthread/Report_Your_Bike_Stolen_/13/Two_bikes_stolen_in_Bloomfield/247/


Updated roster:

Chris
Max
Andy
Ted
Carol
Me
Nick
Ken

Maybes

Dan from Philly
Justin W

I think Carol has a few Maybes up her sleeve, too.


We need some help with the stretch from Valley Forge to the Liberty Bell. Last year this section ended up being pretty neutral, with a big pack of riders, some doing the whole route, some just along for the ride to Valley Forge. Nick got lost somewhere in the city when the bike trail ended, I'd like to not have a repeat of that.

I have a very dim memory of the route we took, maybe one of the Western PA folks can help us out with a Bikely map? I've got a CTC account that you are welcome to use.

Last year we had an official pay-phone to in call from at the finish. I was thinking about doing the same thing this year, but I doubt people will have a pocket full of change for the long distance call to my house. Anyone want to offer a phone with caller ID and an answering machine? And more importantly, is there a pay-phone at the Liberty Bell?

You could get a calling card and give everyone the code, and they can use that to call the answering machine at the Liberty Bell... Then not having change wouldn't be an issue at least.
