Well, I've been watching the weather, and 61 degrees with winds gusting to 20-30mph doesn't sound like anything I want to ride a bike in. It doesn't look like it's going to work out this time. Sorry.

I'm not going to be able to make it either, I 'm hoping things work out if there's a next time. Of course next Saturday would have been perfect timing, that's been my group ride luck this year.

Stock 700x32 Bontrager race lite hardcase, but I should have had them switched to 700x28 when they built the bike. I guess I'll have to wait until I wear them out now.
