In addition, I received this email advising of the details of the ride:
Subject: Ride to Valdosta Friday 24 April 2015Plans are pretty well finalized regarding our ride to Valdosta. . .Ride: Via I-75 (Times are estimated but should be close). We will ride 70-75 MPH staggered in the left lane. This is to avoid 18 wheelers. As we approach rolling pick-up exits, probably about 2-3 miles out, we will get into the right lane and slow down to 50 MPH. Riders in the back should put on flashers to warn trailing motorists that we are at 50 MPH. Joining riders are to be at exits and come down entrance ramps. If properly positioned, they should be able to see and hear us. (We are not stopping except at Exit 101 Pilot in Cordele for gas top off). Once riders join the group, we will then resume highway speeds and move back into the left lane. Then rear riders turn flashers off. Ride order, for group cohesiveness and safety, will be 2 wheelers, then trikes, then cages. I will have a sweep rider to help us with lane switching. Passing down hand signals will be critical with a large group on the interstate.Stage 8:30 AM From south bound I-75, Exit 149, right on GA 49, to Waffle House on the right. Gas station (Flash Foods) are very close to the WH.Ride Briefing 8:45 AMKSU From Byron 9 AM SHARPRolling Pick Up Exit 112 (9:30 - 9:45 AM) Greg RoyalGas stop for 15 minutes and Rodney's crew joining the ride Exit 101 Cordele Pilot (10:00 AM - 10:15 AM)Rolling Pick Up Exit 62 (11:15 AM) Wild 1 Handy and his ALR crewExit 22 into Valdosta. (12 Noonish) Stage Check In at 3103 Ashley Street Valdosta (5 Points Mall)Lunch somewhere and return to 3103 Ashley Street for KSU at 2:00 PMWhile there: I understand that a large meeting was held where police went from hostile to accommodative. We plan to ride on the public streets and follow all traffic laws as we ride onto VSU campus. Wild1 and I between us will have approximately 50 flagline flags on our bikes if we have an opportunity to dismount and stand flag line(s). Not sure of that yet. USAF Vet and Heroine Michelle Manhart will be at staging but cannot ride onto VSU campus, as she would be arrested for trespassing.We seek no trouble nor do we plan to break the law. Please make sure that your driver license, bike registration paperwork, insurance, Georgia Firearms License, and tags are current and up to date. We don’t want to give anyone an excuse to stop us and/or detain us. I encourage that those riding should keep “things” well concealed. I have no information that we should be concerned otherwise.By the way, University Stooge President has announced his resignation effective July 1, 2015. No reason given.
