I am sending the minion in order to collect data on global warming. He said something about cold tires and big scary ADV bikes but I need to get him out of the house or he is gonna drive me insane. Please return him when you are done scaring the crap out of him.

Cloudy, but no fog in my area-- and the Weather Channel doesn't mention fog at some "en route" towns I checked.

Well, I'll have you know I actually washed the Big Yellow Pig yesterday. Well, not really a "wash". I just rode it home from work in the pouring rain, then dried off the yellow painted parts. Bike looks like new!

Red, it still is overcast and damp out here in Scotch Plains, but no fog. Ground is wet, but free of that nasty salt now. Thank goodness for the rain!

See the hearty folks at 11:30....

The weather forecast "partially sunny" was correct. The sun was out from 12:15 to 12:16 and from 15:34:20 to 15:34:32

Notwithstanding that, we had a pretty good ride. And there was pie at the end

What a fantastic ride, despite the disappointing weather. This was my second time out with WP and the route was even better this time. I've lived in the area we rode for years but was amazed again on how well all the invisible side roads can be used to keep a great flow and avoid traffic.

It was doubly nice to get back out after being so sick for so long, and a pleasure to be able to ride with skilled and friendly inmates. I look forward to getting out more this year and seeing you all again soon. I contacted some of the schools you mentioned and want to thank you for the advice. What a great way to start the new year of riding!
