I was supposed to go on a group ride with Cascade Bicycle Club this morning. I have been nursing a cold/flu for the past few days, so it probably wouldn't have been smart to go this morning, but I really felt that I should. The weather intervened and took the decision out of my hands.
The nice thing about these Cascade rides is there is a weather hot line you can call to make sure the ride is still on. Heavy rain, fog or ice cancels, but who's to say what heavy rain is around here. It is nice to be able to call so you don't show up at the starting point alone. Snow on the other hand is a pretty clear sign we're not riding.
