The current Saturday forecast is calling for rain in the afternoon. I will monitor the weather and a cancellation notice will be sent out by 9:15AM if necessary.
Everyone is expected to ride as a group. If you choose to ride at a much faster pace than the leader or deviate from the route, then you are on your own.
Bring a cue sheet and/or a map to the ride and also have the phone number of the Ride Leader and the phone number of at least one friend.
This is a beautiful relatively easy ride with a few rollers, and one long (4 mi) incline/hill but make sure you can do the stated pace and distance.
