I was up in Oregon once.
All it did was rain, But when it was nice it was real nice!
Don't let a little rain stop you, break out the raingear. nmMKD

I sure am glad I live in Phoenix. Sunny and 84 tomorrow...

Oh wait. I forgot. Don't move here. It's hot and crummy and a barren desert. You don't want to live here. And please tell this to the millions that move here every year. We don't need any more people

I rember the Oakland fire when I lived in Marin.
We went to bridge and ate popcorn and drank beer.
We're used to bad air, but this is ridiculousDMoore

I'm in Redlands, across the valley from one of the major SoCal fires that's attacking the San Bernardino National Forest. We're all accustomed to smog around here, and ride all summer long in air that would probably drive most people indoors.

But. For the last few days it's been impossible. Just driving home in the car tonight, with the air conditioner on and set to recirc (to avoid picking up outside air) my eyes were stinging and watering. Can't even consider riding in these conditions. I don't think inhaling ash is that good for the lungs, either.

It has been raining here for the last two weeks. It looks like more rain for the next couple of days. By the end of November it will be time for the snow to start falling. I can count the number of days left on my fingers that I can still ride.

Too bad, so sad. Time to wax up the skis. The new bike riding season is only 5 months away. The powder season starts in a month!

Stop riding in the 50's? Scattered showers? Don't get it.
Aren't you in WI? Where you're gonna be lucky to get 30 for a high? Then again, if you're really looking for a break/rest period from riding, then that's a good reason.

This weekend in N. Oregon the forecast is low 25 - 30, high 40's. Last weekend it was 80. I'm wondering if anyone else will be there at the 8:30 group ride; I know I'll be bundled up and ready to go.

have fun,
I'm with hrvDropped

Unless you happen to be made out of sugar, rain should not stop your ride. If I didn't ride in the rain, my riding season would be 5 months long (like hrv, I'm in Oregon).

Yes, you busted me, just looking for an excuse not to ride!

Don't want to ride too much these days so that when January comes around and it's only in the 20s for a high, I WILL want to ride. Just ordered my winter MTB shoes, the Lake's...
