Geez..I was going to bail out of work @ noon this time and be there by 3. Might have to change that if no one is going to be there til' dark.
We need to at least get out for a night ride in the snow:D even if its late?

We're really hoping to get there in the early afternoon. It all depends on MBC's workload.

Keep us updated. Maybe we can take it easy and do a little shuttling and hit something like Camptown, Jbar, Enchanted forest or Moose alley etc before dinner.
I can tell you right now that with my limited cycling strength and stamina right now, I will not be wasting any effort on Darling Hill Road or the toll road. :D I'm about shuttling next weekend.

It wouldn't hurt my feeling if I didn't have to ride up either hill:D

I've got Friday off, I'm planning on being there ~1pm.

Ride...beer...pizza

Maybe not in that order. :D
Most from our house will be there early afternoon as well, so we can get a ride together if you like, then commence with the consumption part of the trip

Living the dream.
Sampled the bourbon porter this morning... :thumb: :thumb:

Gonna have a little of Becky's California Common as well, that is also really good. I have also dug up a couple bottles of a honey wheat that had been hiding in the back of the fridge. Unfortunately, the Imperial Pilsener isn't quite ready yet...

Should I bring one of my bourbon porters so we can do a side by side and see just how much mine sucks? :monkey:

Unless the weather forecast improves I will be riding local.

There's only a 50% chance of a shower Friday and Friday night. Hell this forecast has improved 200% and couldn't get much better compared to what it looked like a week ago.:D:weee::thumb:

Friday: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 58. Chance of precipitation is 50%.

Friday Night: A chance of showers. Cloudy, with a low around 43. Chance of precipitation is 50%.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy, with a high near 56.

Saturday Night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 34.

Sunday: Partly sunny, with a high near 53.

I agree...I'm liking this weather forecast. A little more sun would be nice, but I'm not complaining. Besides, monkeyfest isn't just about the riding anyway. :)

Accuweather is still saying it might rain on Saturday as well. I might drive up and just ride Sunday which is supposed to be mostly sunny.
