Black Friday Ride

So what are your plans for Black Friday? Sure, doing a Thanksgiving morning ride is easy; you haven't bulked up yet. But the day after...... that's where it gets tough!

I rode 17 miles this morning; I'd like to do twice that tomorrow. The only thing that will stop me is if the thunderstorms in the forecast get here early in the day. Wunderground says chance of t-storms; Intellicast says just rain (50%).

We did about 20 miles today and plan to do about the same tomorrow....although we have rain in the forecast here in Georgia too...so it might end up being a gym day instead....which opens at 9am.

hoping to do 25 before it rains to round out the week at an even 100. if the weather blows tho it will have to wait

oo.. and staying on the backroads will definitely be a good idea... don't go get dead by some crazy person that has been up since like 3:30 today camping in front of Best buy or some ****

I didn't meet my goal, but at least I got out. I planned to ride 30-40 miles. Instead I just road the same route I did on Thanksgiving- about 17 miles. My plan was to head north, but the norther I got, the harder it rained. When the rain got too heavy I turned for home. Stopped off at the LBS for a cup of coffee, then finished my ride, the last mile or so was also a pretty good downpour.
