Unless it's dumping buckets of rain, I plan on being there.

i rode the big loop and it was not bad. but, the roots and rocks are treacherous when wet. i went down (not bad) on the steep trail before the log where we all get off. lost the front, started sliding over the drop before the really trenchy area. luckily nothing broken. about the last 3 kms my lights gave me the warming i was running low so i got a bit scared. but, they held till the end.

It's not bad out there in the weather. We are lucky to live in an area that has such good soil drainage. It'll get pretty slippy when the leaves come down, but they settle in after some precip. I expect to be back in the saddle soon- Lights charged, fenders and booties on standby.

i was reading up on the Pfalz, and my side of the Pfalz gets about 50% less rain than your side. just sayin.

this was based on the yearly average rain fall

Sad to say, yes I do still own some bikes. The bad thing is I do not get to ride them.

Brian, I will prep my gear tonight so I won't have any excuses tomorrow. I won't be super fast on the trail, it's been a bummer month, but at least I will have lights and the right apparel.

Since Eurotrash says he's not going to be very fast I might be able to make it...that is unless he's sandbagging Question Smile Question

Got my bike and gear in the van... and my pads.

Pads on a Woog ride are the social equivalent to wearing a helmet on the short bus, but if a little piece of Nerf would have kept me riding instead of healing all month. So prepare your jokes now, because with this much notice they better be good!
