yeah looks a bit damp here and damper around Yass....

maybe a good time to put the rear knobby back on....

Pretty ordinary ...

Can play the ride by ear a bit - at this stage, Thursday looking more likely than Wednesday - but if we get a big fall tonight / tomorrow then we might have to postpone till next week - no point doing the ride if you've got to go super-slow ...

Anyway, see how things pan out over the next day or so ...

Just looked @ temp outside, +5.5c, with windchill -4.5c, 30kph wind,
13mm rain @ 1700hrs, still throwing it down outside,
See what the sum total is tomorrow night I reckon, not volunteering to go for a ride just yet, it's the wind that gets to me [plus the rain & cold!]
Cheers

Gents - I hear Tom Groggin is excellent this time of year.

I was down there recently and it was fairly dry and not slippery at all.

I reckon you should be right, just get Fati to go first.

Ride Wednesday

We've had about 32mm so far - not an enormous total, but quite heavy last night and probably a bit of water lying around today ...

I've deferred till Thursday for now, but will see how much more falls today and tomorrow - good to have at least one day to run off ...

Next week the most likely outcome I would think ...

At this stage we're still on for Thursday ...

There hasn't been heaps of rain where we'll be riding, and the roads will have had the best part of today and tomorrow (both windy) to dry off ...

The forecast for Thursday looks good, so we'll probably just go with that and keep an eye out for boggy bits ...

Any substantial rain tonight or tomorrow might change all that ...



EDIT: Just called the pub at Wee J - bugger-all rain up there apparently - about 10mm - we should be fine ...

We'll certainly take it easy on the clay, and be a bit conservative about creek crossings ...
