The ride start area is at the Gulledge Elementary School (west side Preston Meadow just south of Legacy). 6801 Preston Meadow Dr, Plano, TX 75024 Please be ready at the start area 15 minutes prior to the start time (6:15 AM) for the pre-ride safety briefing and attendance taking so we'll be able to start as planned. Please have checked and aired up your bike prior to the pre-ride briefing and remember helmet, water, and tire repair kit and dress for the expected conditions. Please register on the Calendar page of the PBA website for one of the available slots and if you do register and later change your plan to attend, please cancel your reservation. If actual weather conditions on Saturday morning seem much worse than now predicted, check this space and the PBA Facebook page. We'll try to post any planned change by 5:00 AM Saturday -- if there is no posting, than we are on for a 6:30 AM start (or at least a parking lot decision to go).
