    Question TWC vs. Weather

    Due to last weekend's cancel and it turned out to be a nice day.

    Should we make these rain or shine? We won't melt...

    But is it worth the added risk?

    Opinions?

    The only real deal with that idea is that we just end up with a dirty bike... I got rain gear!

    The distance needed traveled and the severity of the rain willhave a direct effect on TWC for me. I say go with the plan and whomever shows uprides, those that don’t, don’t. Just be safe.

    I would say go Rain or Shine. but riding styles will just have to be adjusted. and if the meet up looks like it may be just too rough then call it off.

    That's the POV I'm hearing a bunch, and I understand that.

    I will take off plenty of times in the rain like you describe for BIKE TRIPS. I have 500+ miles to beat down and a time schedule to make a trip... oh well, gear up and leave. But this isn't that...

    I know owl, was the only other guys to man up and voice that the rain may affect his attendance.

    I could tell everybody to ensure you give me your cell number and I could start a group text for it... does anybody know of a website that will allow control of a group text, where people could sign up for the group??

    What say you?
