I am moving this ride to Thursday 16 March.

I have consulted the auspicies.  The Cathartes aurae are having trouble staying aloft in the fierce winds of Tuesday which will continue into Wednesday.  Note that Cathartes aurae translates to purifing breezes!

March 15th ride where we do a nice ride to a Cafe and discuss the soothsayers forecast. (During Caesar's parade on the feast of Lupercal, a soothsayer warns Caesar to "Beware the (r)Ides of March", a warning he disregards.)

A 9:30am departure has Caesar telling Brutus that the return will be "at two".

Check Calendar/Forums/Other Auspacies* for any weather related changes.  Come join the fun!

The coin, known as the “Eid Mar” and valued at $4.2 million, features the face of Marcus Junius Brutus, the onetime friend and ally of Caesar who, along with other Roman senators, murdered him on the Ides of March in 44 B.C. According to historians and experts, Brutus had the coins minted in gold and silver to applaud Caesar’s downfall and to pay his soldiers during the civil war that followed the killing.

*Other Auspices may include:
 ex caelo; ex avibus; ex tripudiis; ex quadrupedibus; & ex diris  Being partial to Cathartes aurae, I will use vultures to help determine any ride schedule changes.
