    I think I'll be good for about 30 miles, so I plan to ride out 15, turn around and return, then meet you all at the restaurant after. Praying for good weather!!

      Welcome back, CJ! We look forward to seeing you. The Waverly weather outlook has improved, maybe the rain will stay away until late afternoon.
