Well the weather looks abysmal and if yesterday was any indication it's looking rough for Saturday.  Post up if you're coming.

Easy.  Baby steps 'round here…  coffee



Anyway, weekend weather looks crap.  Maybe the rain chances will change by then but if the weather isn't going to cooperate, we'll just re-schedule.

Alan and I rode the route Saturday.  The bad news is there are two areas of construction that really screw things up.  One is a temporary bridge made from railroad ties with loose rock ramps leading up from the regular road surface to the "bridge," and the other area is a two mile stretch of big gravel.  The bridge is do-able but the loose gravel requires a route change.

Just FYI.

I refuse to believe weather will derail this ride. This is Texas after all, and when have we ever completely trusted the weatherman?

Yea, I really hope we can pull this off.  It's been way too long since we had a good group ride.

But as far as the bridge that is "under destruction construction," it's a small bridge - about fifty feet in length - as you come back from the Red River and into Saint Jo.  Can't recall the name of the road but it is a normal part of the Muenster loop.  We've all been on this road before.  It's the road that eventually snakes up the side of the big hill right before you get into Saint Jo.

People on Multis will have no issues what so ever. Other people  *ahem*  will need to be… brave  laughingdp

So, do whatever it is y'all do to not make it rain on Saturday!  Beginning… NOW!

Also, we stopped at Doc's for lunch.  Doing a booming business.  Their beer garden and up stairs room are available if we need more than a couple of tables.

Which reminds me - where do we want to meet?

Post up if you think you can make this ride because that will determine where we meet.

OK, very cool.  Looks like most of our riders are on the northeast side of the metromess, so considering the planned ride route, I say we meet at the usual QT on Main Street in Frisco at 9:30.  We'll leave from there around 10 so any stragglers won't have to feel like they've got to push it.  We'll save that for later…

Anyway, Alan and I are in.  Sounds like Muskrat and Mrs. Muskrat, and Dallas2r are probably in, plus Mhanis.  So that's a nice solid group for a ride of this nature; it's an all-day extravaganza  - about 250 miles - but it's always fun.  Looking forward to catching up with everyone over a brats platter  in the beer garden at Doc's in Muenster.

So, Readers Digest version:

Saturday, April 16, QT gas Station on Main Street and the North Dallas Tollway in Firsco, 9:30 am.  KSU at 10.  See you there!   Dolph

The Mrs won't be on this ride, no backrest yet and we'd leave her behind if she comes on her bike.  I'm already in trouble and don't wanna give her more ammo.   Tongue

WFAA weather report has tomorrow's rain chances between 30 and 50 percent  Shocked  So, game day decision, I'd say.  

I'll post tomorrow morning around 8:30 if the ride is a   waytogo   or   boo

Count me in, but I won't be on my new steed.  Undecided  I took her in for the 600 mile service and a steering lock error requires a new hands-free unit which won't be in until next week.  bang head  Keeping my fingers crossed that the gremlins will be few and far between after this.  bow down
