    Hey folks, I have decided to cancel the ride after getting some more rain this morning. We received about 0.80 inches of rain at Shelby yesterday (midday) and it was drying up but I think it will still be damp out this morning (particularly the bridges). I would prefer to delay the ride to a later date for safer riding conditions. Sorry for the late notice, but I was going to cancel if had any more showers come through in the night.

    Thanks,
    JMC

      Thx John. I'm glad I checked in first before coming over. I'll look forward to another date.

      June 28, 2014

  • John Michael C.

    I'll keep on eye on the weather and greenway conditions (forecast: Storms -60% Fri and 50% Sat) and please call[masked] to register: we ask for an email/phone number so that we can send a pre-trip email out and call anyone for changes.

    Thanks,

    Hey john, I didn't get the email.

    June 27, 2014

  • John Michael C.

    Please check email: I sent a pre-trip outline.

    June 27, 2014

  • Mary C. H.

    It's early, but I'm going to try to make it. If it is damp, I will pass this time.

    June 26, 2014

  • Jessica R.

    5:30 is early, as long as I don't sleep through my alarm I'll be there.

  • robert m.

    I'll be up by 3:30AM looking at weather. I won't ride if more than a little damp. I see the weather is a bit iffy. Will post here by 5AM if not coming. Fingers crossed. Really want to make this ride!

    June 26, 2014

  • Bobby

    I will only be riding part of the way do to another engagement. But I will be starting.

  • SharonH

    I need to get my biking legs back on! I'm in.

    June 26, 2014

  • robert m.

    I see some don't like the early start. To me dawn is best part of day, especially during summer heat and humidity. Also, I live an hour away at Center Hill lake. I will be there on time. My problem will be 22 miles on a Brooks saddle, if you know what I mean?

    Let's see, Saturday morning, after a Friday night, yeah, I should be in bed by 5:30. Gonna have to miss it. Thank You for scheduling this - we need more rides.
    Keep an eye out for wildlife!

    June 22, 2014

    • Mary C. H.

      I know, David, this is crazy! It's barely gonna be light out. But it will be cooooollll.

      True..that means getting up at 430am on a Saturday. ..think I might have to rethink this one, and make the next trip.

  • Mark

    Are you meeting at the Nature Center building? I ask because 1900 Davidson Street shows up in a different location on Google maps. I know where both are.

    I cant wait to ride again with the group. I wont cry, scream, pout, or whine this time :)

    John, don't worry about elevations. I can handle it. What's great is we start so early. I would wilt in 93 degree heat.

    June 18, 2014

  • robert m.

    That 22 miles is fairly flat, yes? I am a rider but not in shape yet. I am coming from Center Hill lake area, but am early riser, so should be no problem being there at 5:30AM.

    June 17, 2014

    • John Michael C.

      I'll try to find some stats for the elevation gain/loss. The Shelby portion (6.6 total is all flat), rolling hills, and a few flat sections.

      June 18, 2014

  • Carey R.

    Are you really going to start at 5:30 am? Surely you mean 5:30 pm?

    June 12, 2014

    • John Michael C.

      Cool, whatever works. Last Saturday of June.

      June 13, 2014

    • John Michael C.

      Carey, yeah coolest part of the day.

    I'm not familiar with the area or ride. Is this asphalt or trail?
