The B17 Sergeantsville ride on Sunday is full.

Pace: Anything within B17/18/19

Distance: ~40-60 miles

Route: I don't have a particular ride in mind, but anything that starts in/near Central Park is fine. We can pick a ride from NYCC's ride library.

Time: Sunday morning or afternoon is fine by me (afternoon would help drag me away from the couch and football), but since the weather for the afternoon looks dodgy at the moment, morning is probably best.

If you're game, drop me a line or post a reply.

sunday ride

I may be free to do this ride with you on Sunday. Please post your meeting time and place and if I can be there I will. If not tomorrow, some other time - the pace and plan sounds good to me.

If the weather doesn't pan out, I'll try to set something up for later this week. Not that many faster B rides listed, so we'll just have to plan our own rides.

Sunday ride

I'm game, but would prefer leaving by 9 or 9:30. Meet at boathouse?

Weather forecast is not looking favorable. If it changes, I'm game to ride. Boathouse is as good a place to meet as any.

Let's keep an eye on the forecast and see if it improves.

Ride Cancelled

Unfortunately the forecast has remained steady at Miserable. I think I'm going to sleep in. If the weather improves at some point, I may head out for some laps in CP - in which case I'll post and see if anyone is interested in some company to stave off the boredom of spinning around the loop.

"Useless weather forecasts are driving me nuts. Cancelled a ride today because of scattered t-storms in the morning and ""strong"" storms in the afternoon - all of which never came. Somebody pls tell me it rained in NJ (where I was planning on riding) today!"

no significant rain or wind in NJ

This was the kind of forecast where you should have waited until Sunday morning to call it off, because it was never obvious before then. I'd also suggest that you look at accuweather.com rather than weather.com because they give a better idea of hourly differentials in precipitation forecasts. Finally, you should look at the radar, because you can often see for yourself how far away the major precipitation patterns are. (That made it pretty obvious that any rain likely wouldn't show up before 1 or 2 pm - which is when there was light mist on 9W for less than half an hour.) There were the usual dozens of cyclists on 9W Suday morning/afternoon.

Thanks for the tip - accuweather.com has now replaced weather.com (which was the misleading source I was using) in my toolbar. Lesson learned.

I have used both and unfortunately, AccuWeather is NOT that accurate. The hourly breakdown is usually way off. It seems like the predictions are for such a large radius that they are not accurate for us. I think the best measure is the oldest and simplest, just stick your head outside and you can usually guage it with better accuracy!

noaa

I use noaa as my double check. The radar loops are the best.
