    Just a heads up the 32 mile ride doesn't officially start until 10 AM, and I think that's the plan for rainy weather?

    The 1 rest stop on this route doesn't open until 11, so if we start at 9 we'll miss that rest stop since we'll be there well before it opens. It might be better to start later if people are thinking about doing a shorter ride.

    Weather Underground currently has rain chances in Warrenton below 50% by 9:00 and below 20% by 11:00. I think the long route may be a go after all.

    According to Capital Weather Gang, Wunderground is the devil so I don't trust them But I think this may be worth making a call on tomorrow once things are more clear since that stuff changes in a heartbeat.

    Looks likely that Komorebi, LoTM, and I will be showing up a lil later to do the shorter ride and spending more time indoors with beer and pie &tc. I've got nothing to prove to myself for spending extra time in rain or not, ya knoe

    I also realized last night that my costume looks waaaay too much like a Minion, which I find embarassing for some reason, so I have to hide it behind walls as much as possible

    Oh, good decision! I wasn't looking forward to trying to play music after clutching the bars for 63 cold, wet miles and so will happily switch to the short distance.

    9:30 sounds good for me. My costume's pretty much good to go.

    Guess who forgot to ask anyone for a ride? Can someone bail me out?
