Coming into the Bat Cave is usually the home stretch, but this route is a fake out and saves the worst for the end.  That made Ridgeway to Iris especially brutal.  Lockjaw thinks the route deserves a name, open to suggestions.  Congrats to Bone Thugs on his new gig.  Prayers for the Handshake family after the loss of his grandmother.  Good luck to Boberry and crew taking on the Roanoke half this coming weekend.  Bodos suggests holding your wedding at your future grave.  Possibly a view on marriage, but mostly because your funeral is then very romantic.


Bone Thugs Tax Day Trot this Friday April 15th – various routes from 6-9 miles – more details should be released tonight
