Darn!  I just checked the weather forecast and it's predicting rain.  If it's just showers I'll go but will probably cancel if it looks like more than that.  I still have bad feelings about riding in rain these days...

Never know about weather (but 70% prediction is usually not good).

I changed a plan (to shoot with a freind's G-Sons) to THU last week cause FRI had 60%. Then THU AM they changed FRI to 60% after 7PM.

Guess what FRIDAY was the best of the two days (no rain and less wind and warmer).  :groan

It's not my kind of ride, but hope it works for the rest of you.  :happyrider

What about the rain date shown on the poster (31 Mar) ?  Want to try for that?

According to the Weather Underground forecast site the 31st is supposed to be sunny and warm (60F).

How did the ride go?  It was a pretty crappy day here with lots of rain but also occasional clearing.

Sorry the ride was a washout.  But you're certainly welcome at my place on Sunday.

If that doesn't work out I'd like to try and get together for a ride as the weather gets better.

Last prediction I saw for SUNDAY is OK -- I would say wait and see cause Saturday is ???? and who knows if the front will change timing.

Anyway, Ia m planning on it.
