I have updated the ride start time to 9 am. The previous 10 am start time considered the need to allow temperatures to rise from usual arctic November lows. Current forecast is for unseasonably pleasant temps!

The earlier start time allows for more time lollygagging and dilly dallying along the route with time to spare before sunset.

Ugh.. I stumbled onto this issue on 'The Best Ride Ever' route today. I made my best pirate imitation as I walked the plank across the creek left for the construction workers. I will have to look at the rerouting offered above as an alternative before I post the ride for the club.

I do have a Saris (https://www.saris.com/product/bones2) product that served me well and is gathering dust. I used it on my Toyota Camry sedan, which has since been converted to a charity donation write-off. I chose a hitch mount for my current vehicle. I could part with for a nominal amount. Let me know if you are interested.

Reflecting on both Nigel's recent crash and my own lesser wipeout on Bike Virginia, I am looking for suggestions on what would be prudent for a ride leader to carry as in a minimalist first aid kit. I was happy that some passers by were able to offer sterile wipes to clean up my scrapes. In the past, I have lead rides with nothing to offer folks with road rash. I now carry a small sandwich bag with antiseptic towlettes (Benzalkonium Chloride), a few 'ketchup' packs of antibiotic ointment, along with a couple of gauze pads and adhesive bandages. Curious to hear thoughts from other folks, and whether we should consider adding this to the ride leader check list.

The ride start time has been pushed out to 9 am to increase the chance of missing predicted early morning showers - Also allows more time for hand wringing about whether the ride will actually go! Stay tuned for any updates by early tomorrow morning.

100% chance of rain = 0% chance of cycling fun tomorrow. Hope to reschedule this ride for a drier day in the future. Enjoy the one in a hundred years 'pi day' occurrence on 3.14.15 at 9:26:53....

Only one of the elements conspired against myself and a single riding companion - the wind was blowing mightily! But we did stay dry...

Looks like not ideal conditions, but let's dress warmly and get this ride in!

Found a hotel room in the Easton area! That also fits well with my plan for a preview ride on Friday on the scenic St Michael's loop...

Just learned that my friends in Salisbury will not be able to extend their hospitality to me the night before the big ride due to change in their plans. If anyone is aware of a spare bed in a hotel or house for the event, please let me know.

Thanks!
