Heading out to do the 4 Rivers Century group ride!
Short blog today, I’m getting ready to head out and do the 4 Rivers Century group ride!
I’m very excited about this ride. My biggest ride to date is a little over 75 miles, so doing a full 100 mile ride is an accomplishment I’m very much looking forward to getting under my belt.
It looks like the weather will be adding to the challenge. It’s going to be hot and humid, and the chance that we’ll encounter rain/thunderstorms is high. Also–and this is almost comical–it looks like the wind will either be against us or crossing us the entire way. Based on the forecast, there will literally be no part of the 100 mile ride with the wind at our backs. When we roll out the winds will be out of the west, (we’ll be heading mostly south at that point), and about the time we start our eastern leg the wind will shift and… yep, you guessed it, come from the east. 🙂
I’m stoked. Let’s ride!
Quick summery in tomorrow’s blog, full report on Monday.
