I suppose I could ride over the previous evening, roll out the sleeping bag, and camp out in the Cracker Barrel parking lot. Your call.
Kickstands up at 11am for the retirees!!

OK who's in? Looks to be Sunny and 75 right??

Well it'll be 75 somewhere hopefully at least 40 + when we ride?

Re: Winter Solstice 2017 Anyone?

My weather app says mid-30s and cloudy in the morning with a high of 41 later. Given that it's about 45-50 minutes to CB from my house, I'm guessing I'm out unless temps are more moderate. A 5-6 hour day in the saddle in mostly 30* temps is a bit too extreme for this guy. I'll make the decision late on Friday.

If it's really wet I'd be up for re-scheduling unless a few braves riders are going to tough it out! Cold & wet is another dimension of misery..

Re: Winter Solstice 2017 Anyone?

looking at the hourly says 40 and rain at 10 Am until 1 PM snow and snow showers at 2 PM generally the weather isn't spot on but had we been able to ride on the actual 1st day of winter being yesterday that would of been awesome weather!

Whatcha guys think?

Yes maybe new year day Ride might be a good goal or weekend prior definitely put into to play when the weather outlook is more agreeable with 2 wheels

For those who don't have a Facebook account or are social media illiterate, Greg has cancelled the Solstice Ride for tomorrow due to the weather. No make up date yet...stay tuned.
