Pete,

I managed to put together a decent ride with a few climbs that will end right at the beginning of yours, so can I meet you guys at Ono?
Here is the route, I'll meet you all there if that works: http://ridewithgps.com/routes/1741706
Can you guesstimate what time you'll be there?
We should be in that area at about 9:30-9:45am. We usually make a quick last stop at a round wooden hut with shade and a few vending machines located HERE. That would be a good place to meet us. The other good alternative would be at the wooden pavilion at the top of the climb around 10:00-10:15am.
