So, it's a bit of a shit show really. The ride from Condie into Lumsden will be in to a headwind. The return will be a fast one. The ultimate kick to the head will be if the winds die off just as we are getting ready to turn around! Don't laugh, it's happened to me more than once.
The wind will also keep the temperatures down and the evening will cool off rapidly after 7pm.
But we live in Saskatchewan, wind is a fact of life here so let's get out there and see what happens. Meet out at Condie and be ready to ride by 6:20.
This will be our first ride together and conditions are less than ideal.
If you are a senior rider, please keep the pace and the groupings loose and easy until you get a good feel for what's going on. We're all excited to be out, but let's be smart.
If you're a new rider, relax and listen to the other riders.
There is no question that tonight will be a tough ride. If you decide to skip it, that's completely understandable especially if you do not feel ready yet. Please be smart about this evening. here to edit.
