      Sick, I went for the Port Credit ride from the beaches and didn't get 1 drop of rain the whole night. Must have rained just north in Scarborough maybe.

    Rain had ended, radar is clear, let's ride!

    I was also planning on doing the Port Credit ride but I'm having some knee pain. I might come to this ride instead since it's easier/shorter but most likely not. Will be a last minute decision.

    Sorry I can't make it this time. I'll just have to cycle solo in Niagara!
