    Whose riding tomorrow?

    Wife and I are doing an easy 36 miles with a mid-point Starbuck's stop (Panera is closed). The we hang around until 2:30, feed the horses and head over to my son's mother-in-law's for more food than anyone ought to eat in one day. Should be in the high 60's

    Not me. Weather is against us in the UK. Plenty of rain and high winds today and although the rain should ease tomorrow- it will be back Friday with a vengeance and the wind will stay at around 25mph and gusting upwards.

    Yes, putting the turkey in the oven and telling my grown sons who are visiting to watch it.

    Will hit the road no later than 7am. Highs in the mid 80s with only a 15 mph wind! Humidity will still be in the 80-90% range.

    It supposed to rain here Friday, I'll believe it when I see it, the two year+ drought is still got a grip on us.

    Gotta work up that appetite :-)

    My mileage is way, way down this month, so I've planed to ride my "easy" century from Santa Clarita to Ventura and back. No family in the area and lady friend is back in Wisconsin with her family, weather is forecast to be pretty optimal, so there is nothing holding my back ... except for my own laziness.

    My wife and I will be going out on the trikes at some point in the day. Forecast is sunny and 61 or so. We're staying home for the holiday and no one is visiting so we can do whatever we want, whenever we want.

    Nope, gonna be too busy. Delivering food to my son and his family who somehow contracted severe cases of poison sumac. Then back home to entertain other relatives. You think I drink because I like it? Will shoot for a ride on Friday, supposed to be mid to upper 50's here.

    Gonna try, weather may be dicey with some rain in the forecast. If able I will ride to the family dinner about 14 miles south of here and have the wife drive the van with the bike rack on it about 1/2 hour after I start. I'll load the bike on the rack when I get there and we can stay after dark when the temps are low.

    Momma and I will do 20-30 riverside trail miles, me on my old Colnago and she on her new Paramount. Will be a great day here, should be around 50° or so. I'm going to have to hustle, last time out she almost kicked by arse. That's what I get for robbing the cradle, plus she's a fitness freak.

    Definitely riding in the afternoon with my daughter. Turkey in the oven at 0430 and Monica and I will watch it for basting with EV olive oil and, have some coffee, yogurt and oatmeal for breakfast. After we secure from lunch with our families it is road mileage time for us, Monica said she was riding around the area while we hit the out and back, weather here is beautiful right now.

    Well, barring some issue, I'll be getting up around 04:00 or so and doing at least 35 miles. My plan is to get 40~45 miles in the early am.

    I've plotted out a nice, easy spin of about 38 miles. Posted it to our club's Impromptu Rides list for a 10am start. We'll see how many show up. One couple have emailed to say they'll be there with the tandem.

    With temps of near 60 predicted for the afternoon, 30+ miles would be called for. However, all 10 guests are arriving at 1 pm and are looking forward to the smoked turkey with all the fixins. Can't walk (or ride) away from this.

    We are going to try but, not sure if the clock will be our friend. We are supposed to be at the in-laws house around 5 pm but, my wife is supposed to make the stuffing and I need to do something with the leaves in the back yard. I was going to do them today but, I met my son for lunch and then I went for a ride. The plan is to do the leaves while she makes the stuffing in the morning, load the bikes, eat a lite lunch and head out for a ride no later than 1 pm at the latest. If me miss that 1 pm deadline the window closes

    Not me. We're making the 2.5 hour drive to my daughters and having the big meal with her family, her siblings, and other estranged members of the family.
    Afterward all the guys will probably go out back and shoot their compound bows. A poor defenseless bale of hay will be the target. I guess I'll have to take my take-down recurve to show them how its done right.

    Yes, MUST ride after what I did at church last night. We had pie after the service and I consumed three slices (for shame I had pie before the ride ). I plan to ride in the morning before family starts arriving. Have to go easy on desserts.

    Nope, did an out and back today that added up to 30 miles. Longest ride so far after the trauma and surgery. The legs and back are complaining but it was good physical therapy. No way the body will allow another ride tomorrow. But, that is all OK.
