We will stay in contact. No one will be dropped.

Weather Note: Rain, temperatures in the 50’s, and possible thunderstorms are forecast as of now. All riders must have a rain jacket and some sort of warm layer. Jacket is to keep cold rain off your skin and to keep you wet but warm. Happy is up to you! We will adapt as needed to the conditions we encounter.

Parkway Note: All riders must have headlight and taillight due to tunnels. Also, ride only in single file except to pass per Parkway rules.

Final go-no go decision will be made (1) by Saturday afternoon at 18h00 then (2) on the ride as needed.
