Gang,

I’ve been watching the weather forecast for Saturday. It does not look good.

Wednesday gravel road ride

I've been keeping a close eye on the forecast for a few days now. What was supposed to be an overnight rain tonight has continually been moved up, forecast now to start around 7:15pm according to my weather app. I know it looks beautiful out there now, but at 7:15, we'd only be less than halfway into our ride. This is the toughest part of being a ride leader - trying to predict the weather and give everyone fair warning when the ride is a go or cancelled. Sorry to disappoint, but it just doesn't look like we'd get a full ride in tonight and stay dry. Hope to see you all next week.
