Thanks so much for another Roscoe Ramble.  What a great weekend once again. You have created a very unique cycling experience that is not offered anywhere else.

What a beautiful weekend for riding! Once again Roscoe Ramble was well attended and managed by Jim and Judy Birt. Thanks for a spectacular weekend of riding. I do not know everyone's names but a "tip of the helmet" to all volunteers who gave up their weekend so we could ride.
Anyone thinking of riding this ride should give it a go next year!
