    rainy day ride today, we did a shorter route b/c of the conditions for those who still showed

    Hi everyone. I showed up at the meeting place and 2 of the riders (Maureen and Patty) were there. They were still game for a smaller loop ride in the rain which so we went. Braking was definitely much harder. If folks want in the future to still go despite rain that is ok by me. I want to get my exercise in while the temperatures are still warm.

    The hourly on weather.com pushed up the precip to high this morning. I would recommend not riding this morning to the group. Like i said before, i will be at the meetup spot to catch anyone that didn't get this post.

      Dang! Oh well, thanks for sending out the message, guess I'll have plenty of time for breakfast after all.

  • Mr T e.

    Yes, it is drizzling here. Just started. I will go out to the meeting spot to catch just in case

    Hi Teige, are you out there? Raining steady here, I am not motivated to pack it up to drive to concord in the rain. some forecasts say for example harvard that rain ends at noon. Any chance of making it later?
