  1. Just wanted to say thank you for this resource -- I've kept it handy all summer (my first summer with a bike in 15+ years), and used it for my first organized ride.... Then went on two more after that! Thanks for doing the legwork so that we could do the legwork too. ;) I hope you'll consider doing this again next year!
