This would be the most fun EVER! I wish I lived closer. It sounds like you guys have some amazing trails in your area. Your pics of Mulberry Gap were great! Instead, I will be doing my best to stalk George Hincapie that week as the Tour of Missouri comes to town. Maybe next time.

Oh man, I'm totally bummed to have to miss this. I have the culmination of an 8 month long project at work, going live that weekend.
