Wednesday gravel road ride - cancelled

I'm not a meteorolgist yet, but it appears it's going to rain tonight. The chance of rain increases with each passing hour starting at 5pm. By 7pm, it seems a pretty sure thing. That means we would likely finish in the rain. We could try to stay close to home base, but that means another edition of the subdivision tour. 

I'm thinking that most folks who are serious about riding this time of year are training for Iceman. If that's you, I suggest that tonight you go out as early as you can and do your own training ride, and get yourself home before 7-8pm.

Hope to see you next week. It looks like it will be much cooler next week, but hopefully drier. 




Saturday "A" Ride, October 15th.


As the sun is still up at 8:00 a.m., lets start at that time on Saturday. Again, meet at Depot Park in Clarkston. This ride is a "drop" ride with the pace and route (approximately 50 miles) determined by those present at the park. Bring navigational assistance if you decide to fall off the paceline. Proper paceline etiquette and rules of the road are observed.
