Although the forecast may say tomorrow's high will be around 70, that's going to come at around midnight tonight. Temperatures will be falling from there, so the daytime high will be in the low to mid 60's. And winds will be gusting from the north at 25 mph. Wear a jacket! (or at least arm & leg warmers.) Yes, you can get hypothermia when temps are in the 60's on a rainy, windy day.

Aside from that, just remember how much you loved to splash in puddles when you were a kid. Riding in rain can be fun, with the right attitude! See you on the road.

A little rain is one thing...

But we're talking heavy downpours tomorrow. It sounds like enough to create its own resistance, kind of like riding in a swimming pool.

I'm game if it's not raining when I'm ready to leave, but I'm dropping out if it is anything like what I saw just earlier this eve in Bkln. I even went and bought a few last minute items tonight, so I'm assuming I'm going. On the other hand, I drove to the store rather than ride because I didn't want to get caught in the rain, and I even had my cycle clothes on.

The last time I did a century, cell phones hadn't been invented yet, so if it rained, you were stuck. If it rains tomw while I'm out on the road up in Rockland, I'll be on the phone.

ENY has very limited cars for SAG'ing

While I can understand how you feel Zac please be aware that we have just a handful of cars to SAG for ENY. We will not be able to accomodate everyone. The few cars we have will be at the rest stops. We are able to SAG only those who absolutely need it and then only after the rest stop has closed. If we had many more cars we could accomodate more but we can only work with what we have.

I guess my point was that if you need to bail out, just pick up the phone and call your spouse or whoever to come and get you. You no longer need to rely on a sag wagon sweeping the course. This is especially true with a loop course as you're never too far away.

Its 5:30am and it is NOT raining, just a little wet, so I'm on my way. And I'm taking the advice to bring some extra clothes.

I've done rides in the rain before, but today at about 7:45 or so the rain started falling, the lightning was flashing and the wind was blowing.

I didn't even make it to the bridge. It just wasn't worth it. Hopped on the A train and went home. Oh well, next time.
