At this writing (Friday, 7 AM, Oct 20th) the weather forecast for Saturday morning, October 21st, across the ride area is tentative -- The Weather Channel has it as a 25% chance of rain overnight into Saturday and a 40% chance of rain in the 8 - 10 AM timeframe, temps in the low 70s at the start and moderate winds (SSE at 11 -14 mph). Should the forecasted rain develop and be widespread across the area on Saturday morning, check this space for a cancellation notice that will be posted by 6:15 AM Saturday. If you don't see a cancellation notice by 6:15 AM, then I'm planning to be at the start area and we'll call a go/no-go from there.

The start area is in the parking lot of the Stonewood Professional Office Park (33 deg 03' 29" N 96 deg 46' 25" W). This is just to the west of the shopping center at the northwest corner of Coit and Spring Creek. Please meet and sign-in at 7:45 AM for the pre-ride briefing ready to go so we can ride off at 8 AM. Please remember water, helmet, tire repair kit, and air-up your tires and check your bike before the pre-ride briefing. We'll plan to do the normal Step-Up 33.5 mile route at an average of about 13 - 14 MPH. Step-Up avg speeds for the last few months of rides have been between 13.2 and 13.8 mph.

For future planning, be aware that many club members, including those who have been leading the Step-Up ride of late, will be riding the downtown Dallas ride on Saturday, November 4th. There will likely not be a Step-Up ride on Nov 4th.
