Rain showers are forecasted for early Saturday morning but clearing by 9:00. Hopefully it will be good to go by 11:30 AM. Of course, I will monitor the weather forecast and will make a weather call NLT 10:00 AM Saturday morning.
Bring a cue sheet and/or a loaded navigation device and have the phone number of the Ride Leader and also a friend.
Again, this is a moderate ride with some rollers so be sure you can do the stated average pace for the distance of 50 miles. If you choose to ride at a much faster pace or deviate from the route then you are on your own.
