Rain is officially GONE - it's beautiful out today. I predict I'll be on the bike by 5:15 (the advantage of having my studio across the street from my condo.)

See you on the roads.

Hey kelmurfee,

Welcome aboard—I live on Oakland County (Royal Oak) as well - some other folks on here do to. It seems there's a fairly active cycling community out here on the west side.
