I wish! Hoping for reports and some photos of it, though. Have a great time!

I'm riding it. I'm picking up a friend from Seattle at the airport Tuesday evening and heading over to Durham College. I'll show him a bit of Toronto on Wednesday and then we're off !

Say hello to Aussie Hans when you see him, former LRM president.

I'm sure that I won't meet everyone doing the ride, but I'll do my best ! I spent a chunk of time today organizing my three drop bags, reviewing my checklist etc. Tomorrow will be bike cleaning and double check.

The Granite Anvil starts out from Durham College in Oshawa at 5am tomorrow. I'm there now -- quite a good setup, beats motels. I picked up Geoff Swarts at the airport last night. He flew in from Seattle and will be doing the ride.

I cannot believe the weather forecast. If it holds true, it will be the best patch of weather all summer. Daytime temperatures in the low 80's, nighttime temps in the low 60's, little to no wind (3mph), it's a dream come true. It sure beats the thunderstorm filled 600 that I did a couple of weeks ago ... but of course there are still days ahead for that to change. I won't jinx things by leaving my raincoat behind though .
