Doesn't sound like good biking weather. Wet and windy. If it looks crappy when I wake up, I will probably go back to bed and then spend the morning with the kids, getting ready for our new arrival. We adopted a 6-month old yellow lab, and will be picking him up in Vernon, Connecticut in the afternoon.

4am report Sat morn: just took a look at the radar maps, and there's virtually no activity over Mass. for showers. The more North in N.E that you go, the better the chance of some wet weather.

I'm attending the ride today. See you at 7:30.

Hope you had a great ride! I woke up, it was still dark, but I could see puddles shining from the street lights and went back to bed. I didn't wake up again until 7!! Too late to rally. Hope you had a good ride and a few folks showed up to join you. Ducky likes this weather -- perhaps she rode today??

We're off to get the new puppy -- Rigby is his name. Back later tonight. Hope the weather is nice for next weekend!

Well, it was just me and Ed who rode today. We went to the Airport for breakfast and rode back. The wind was not that bad! It was 50 degrees out, and the sun came out! You all missed a great opportunity to ride.

And Jane the waitress asked where everybody was! Even the waitress was surprised that you didn't ride...

I know... Sorry I missed it. In hindsight, I could have squeezed it in, as we didn't leave for Connecticut to pick up the puppy until after noon. Are we heading to Manchester next weekend?? (Passover ride?)

Manchester is the traditional route for the Passover Ride, right? It is always a treat celebrating with the Cyclopaths for the holiday! I just love the songs that we sing!

I am planning on going on to Gloucester if anyone wants to get some extra miles (Ed? Tam? You are in competition! ;)

I will probably jump in on the Passover ride. After that, who knows where I'll end up going.

I followed Tammy (sort of) in that I got dressed and walked out the door with my bike and it was still dripping so I quickly parked the bike, changed clothes, and headed for the gym for 1.5 hours of indoor fun.

Today I rode down to Marblehead to watch some of the races. I raninto Ethan and 2 of his posse and we rode a little way around Peach Point before I heade back up the coast.

Not as warm as I had hoped.

Happy Holidays (Easter and Passover) to all.
