today's ride
Category: Social
Forum: Ride Reports

Bob and I had 22 cyclists today.  Great ride.  It did get a little hot and icky on the last 8 miles of the ride. I did have concerns today regarding the safety of the riders.  Information gathered from the riders  prompt me to write reminders to keep every one safe.

Please eat breakfast before undertaking a moderate length ride and maybe bring a little snack.  Todays ride did not have  food or water available until mile 24. For most of us, the ride start was an hour drive.  Add that to 24 miles of cycling and there is no calorie consumption for many hours.

Bring plenty of water.  A can of Red Bull on a hot day with no water could lead to a serious health event.

Happy to say, a serious health event was averted.  I "nagged" everyone into serious rehydration. Everyone finished the ride.

Wind and rain predicted.  Already raining nearby.  Ride cancelled.

Prediction for tomorrow is 80% chance of rain and winds of 18mph in Fulton at ride start time.  I'll be talking with Ken and Bob in the am before we cancel.  Please check the forum for cancellation info.

Weather is looking iffy for Sunday.  Added the Marley Station ride on Sat.  Predicted 20% chance of showers. 26/36 mile options.

Thanks to Cindy and all the volunteers.  Great job.  I was approached by many of the cyclists today.  They all said thank you, great event.  One from NY said this was his 2nd CWC and he plans to return next year. He said , not only is this a well done event.  But that all the volunteers are very upbeat .  I received only one complaint.That was from a cyclist that had returned during the brunt of the storm.He was unhappy about the food service.  At that time, I was just glad we still had a tent and food to serve!

Just checked 3 weather sites.  Cloudy, drizzle, showers, Tstorms 90% chance in Davidsonville area.  The ride is cancelled.
Will post again.

Just checked several weather reports.  Excessive heat warning tomorrow.  Heat index in Davidsonville/Deale area, 110 degrees by 11am.  We are cancelling the ride.
Will reschedule when a little bit cooler.

Just was up in Thurmont.Motters Station road is closed just before I was to make a right turn onto Old Frederick Rd. Signs do not indicate how long it will be closed.   Will this be a problem for the Civil War Century?

The Deale ride on Sat has been moved up to 8:00a.  Please check the website for a possible cancellation.  Will decide Sat. am based on predicted heat index.

Sunday's ride in Carroll Co., Mike Guesele, time start has been moved to 8:30a.
