DFW RTE East Texas Curving Grounds CANCELLED
« on: August 23, 2015, 01:50:34 pm »
The rain chances tomorrow for a RTE are too high after the afternoon forecast update from NWS.

I prefer to ride on drier pavement for a RTE so we will reschedule this ride.

Ride on track with dry weather and mid 90s later afternoon. Morning should be fine to early afternoon.

Next month a ride up to Muenster is in order I think.!!!! ;D :motonoises:   Illinois Bend Bridge!!!!!

That sounds good, too. That's a nice ride. My daughter and I ate at Doc's in Muenster a while back. Very nice place. Good Rueben and incredibly amazing carrot cake.

Never fear, Craig is here! Hey, he's the weatherman, you know. If you didn't know, now you do. Craig will steer us around any of the wet stuff, but bring your rain gear just in case we get a little bit of it.

Looking at the tabular forecast.

http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lat=32.8302&lon=-96.6272&unit=0&lg=english&FcstType=graphical

Rain chances have been increased to about thirty percent as the latest RAP model data has a higher rain chance in the morning along the front.

I would rather pick a cooler and drier weekend so the ride is cancelled tomorrow.

I will reschedule as soon as I can get a date.

If I am going to ride on a day ride, I want to have a bit of fun. Wet country chip n seal roads are a lot more fun dry and a little cooler would be better as well.

I hate to get out and tip toe when we can pick a dry day and roar.

I was about to sign up at the last minute but checked here first.
Looks like a good call.  I don't really enjoy riding in the rain, especially on a bike that I haven't fully learned.
Looking forward to the reschedule.

Forecast has been upped to 40% tapering off later in the afternoon. If we are going to enjoy some curves, then I prefer full traction coefficient on a day ride! ;D

10th of OCT won't work for me either now, Jim.

May have to look after the AR ride now as other priorities are taking my time.
