    Sounds like a plan. If it stays clear, Woohoo! If it doesn't, I'll get to use my new rain jacket. Either way, total fun. Thanks for doing this.

Meet 915 AM at Best Buns in Shirlington, for coffee/snack, if desired before the ride. Wheels rolling from Shirlington at 10 AM. Drawing start and end is at at the intersection of W&OD and Carlin Springs Rd. You can meet us there at ~10:20 AM and complete the 12-mile art ride in about an hour's time. No drop; average speed 9-12 mph. There are a few techniques I can show you about doing Strava Art, we will have to cross a couple of parks, a staircase, and a sidewalk for a stretch along a one-way street. Whether you are an experienced Strava artist or a newbie, it will be fun for all. After, if we're hungry for lunch, we can ride to Ballston for lots of possibilities.

    SUMMARY

    • Sunday March 10
    • Meet 915 AM at Best Buns in Shirlington, for coffee/snack, if desired before the ride.

    The forecast for tomorrow looks pretty dreadful, but yes, I'm still crazy enough to ride. Bring your rain gear and whatever extra clothes, socks, or gloves you need to be comfortable at the stops. This is a no-hypothermia-allowed event.

    This shorter route we'll be using is at https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29419142.

    I'm afraid I'll have to withdraw from the ride tomorrow. The weather plus some issues at home will keep me away. Those who go, stay warm!

    Jo and I will be there. I'll just keep reminding myself through all the misery that nobody can tell you're crying in the rain...

    SarahBee and I are in. Looks like rain won't arrive until this afternoon, so hoping for the best, planning for the worst!
