Folks are starting to trickle in.

Just meet Skibum and DancingBoy over at Embedee's and Dresda's place, sounds like they are going to have a crowd flopping out at their place tonight.

Forecast is for 30-50 mm of rain in the next 24 hours with more on the radar tomorrow.....trails and roads are going to be slick and muddy. Water crossings are going to be......entertaining

Cool! Lookn forward to crossing paths again Garry!

I'm all packed - just need to swap my bald commuting tires for my 'knobby' commuting tires (I don't want to burn up my 'trail 606's on all this road stuff).

Hope the rain goes away soon!

Looks like one spot tracker hasn't moved for a couple of hours down south and is in the middle of some severe weather

Read this from start to finish, on a small island with a big history.

Enjoy the freedom to ride these trails and know that I am supremely jealous.

...and maybe some

Deadly99, I’ve been following this RR for some time, and I’m extremely amazed at the amount of time and personnel resources you provide to this project. The world is looking at this and as a Canadian thank you.
