enjoy your brevets this weekend, and be safe.

Dale, looks like we'll need our toasty mittens and wool socks. KC will be cold and windy but appears to be sidestepping the winter precipitation. sure you wouldn't care to drive a few km east instead? i have a feeling it will be a skill-building ride tomorrow.
JS, can you provide the link for the weather website?..TIA..(nm)wasabekid

I know you ride long distances in a certain time period, but it seems there is a whole other culture here than road racing. Care to share anything about it?

Basically it's not a race. It's just an organised, supported ride that people have their own PBs to aim at. Great community to be a part of!

It ain't racin' and it ain't just ridin.' It's a mish-mash of touring and time-trialing. You meet the nicest folks plugging away on a road in the middle of nowhere. Give it a try!

Here's the forecast for the KC brevet (200K):

Tonight: Some clouds. Low 26F. Winds NW at 15 to 25 mph.

Tomorrow: Windy with a few clouds from time to time. High 44F. Winds NW at 15 to 25 mph.

Could be worse. Could be raining.

Bonne route, Y'all!
