Read the post from cccorlew & Rick @ OCRR doing the Davis Double Century this coming weekend. KUDOS to anyone who would even attempt such a feat !
Several members here will be busy Monday, May 18th, with our own challenge, climbing up the highest point east of the Mississippi for the 34th Annual Assault on Mt. Mitchell. I know that both jppe & I will be enjoying the sufferfest from Spartanburg to the 6,684ft summit. Last year the weather was Carolina blue sky & warm (99deg in Marion, NC, 90+ on the Blue Ridge Parkway, 80+ at the top of Mitchell). This year with a month earlier ride date, we can hope it's a bit more more temperate.
Early forecast is for 57deg at the start, 67deg high for the day, and then that pesky 60% chance of a shower or isolated thunderstorm. I'd likely need to get cleaned up anyway somewhere along the line, saves me taking a shower after the finish...Wish us Godspeed.
