FOG Today
 
Started out at 7:15 AM to meet the group for a ride:
80* Fog, Was it Safe to ride in the fog?

Yes it was safe. Finished the ride with 100 miles 96* temp.
Will Try another one tomorrow.

Fog seems a little strange for August... we usually get fog in December & January with temps around 45d F. Your riding weather looks good and so does the road. Great job on 100 miles.

Can them old dudes see in the fog?:D

I leave work at 6am and see a lot of foggy mornings. No choice but to bike home. And there's no reliable way to tell at 5pm the previous night whether I'll have fog in the morning. Lights are not optional.

We use Red and White Canes on the front of our bikes.
We ride to stay out of a nursing home.
But we are all going to end up as the sign says.
Irene is 29 y/o.

Well as long as you can still attract the 'Honies' on your rides, you're doing allright!:thumb:

Ofcourse I'm kidding! Hope that I can continue riding till I hit the sign myself!:D


Are you in the pic or just your buds?

Come on down sometime and place your name on the back of the sign. Haha
Irene is a Tri Racer. She rides with us for miles.
Once each ride I will try to out run her. But I always lose.
Must be nice to be young.

By the way, if you have a blinkie on your bike (I can't remember if you do or not), in the blink mode, you can see it 5X as far as a steady light mode, preferably one of the fast "looks like an emergency light" mode. A LED headlight on blink mode also increases your ability to be seen in the fog.

I had Two Head lights on this morning ( no fog). Our Fog is Heavy Dense Stuff.
Had the Night Rider on Flash the Busch & Muller on Bright.
One car coming toward me Stopped 1 block up waiting for me to pass?
