    Ride Conditions Update:

    I just checked VDOT road and local weather forecast for tomorrow's ride.

    The planned route is open with no advisories, though the descent from Mt Weather (VA-601) is advised at 40-60% of the posted speed limit. http://www.511virginia.org/

    Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny with temps in the low 40s, and winds 5-7 mph (easy peasy!:-). However, it is forecasted to freeze tonight in the high elevations around Mt Weather. https://www.localconditions.com/weat...irginia/20135/

    So I plan to do the route COUNTER clockwise, which will put us in the low elevation rollers from Marshal to Bluemont in the early morning, and give the VA-601 descent into Paris time to thaw and dry out before we get to Mt Weather.

    All systems go!!;-)

    Finishing the ride before 4PM is easy. If you ride like a beast and skip the rest stops, then the ride could be over be over by 12noon!:-0

    Vibes received in the form of warm sunshine the whole length of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Thank you. And you were super missed!
