Our suggestion? Ride with a bunch of other crazy folks on the ABCDEFGHIJ! Ride on New Year's Day! It's fun. It's free. It's got something for everyone -- 3, 12, and 24 mile routes -- but not a lot of anything else (no SAG, no rest stops, no first aid). And the weather forecast is actually looking pretty decent this year. Just show up at the Medina Public Square to depart at noon.
