The Deuce—2017/09/02—Weston/Celina 61mi

2 months 3 weeks ago #25402

The weather forecast for Saturday is for mild temperatures (70-82F, 21-28C), with light winds out of the south, then south-southwest (3-5mph, 4-9kph). So for some reason, a lot of other rides are going north. That lets them come back to Plano heading into the light winds. If you can believe the weather prediction. Because they’re always so accurate.
Anyway, we’ll follow the crowd. I’ve put this route together based on the DB Rec and DB1 routes that are already posted. It involves some roads in the Weston area that I don’t recall having ridden on, but it mostly avoids FM543, which has a terrible chip-seal problem. Hopefully, someone else has ridden these roads previously and included them on these routes because they’re good. Or at least safe to ride.
This is now September, and the ride start shifts to 07:30 for one month. So we’ll gather for the sign-in and speech at 07:15. Even though the temperatures will be mild, bring enough water to stay hydrated and snacks to stay fueled up. It’s still possible to overextend yourself and bonk, and we’d rather avoid that. Looking over the route, I don’t see anyplace to stop between miles 25 and 35, so I’m planning on having two breaks, at mile 20, at the QuikTrip on Wilmeth just east of 75, and at mile 42, at the 7-Eleven on Preston (SH289) in Celina.
