Tuesday 9/2 - Simsbury CP Ride **5:30 Start**

This week we start @ 5:30pm sharp, see everyone by 5:15pm. Mountain Road was so nice, we'll do it twice... but lets climb it this time. Here's the route RideWithGPS Route Link. 27mi 1900ft climb.

Cue Sheet: * Out via Old Farms/Holcomb/Barndoor Hills/Bushy (Regroup) * Take Rt-180 for Granby to Mtn Road * Mountain Road Climb all the way till it ends in East Hartland (Regroup @ top) * Descend 20 all the way to Simsbury Rd (Regroup) * Return via Simsbury/Fire town/Old Farms Rd.

Everyone should have a rear blinky, and I'd recommend bringing a headlight just in case.

Today's ride is still on as of 1pm. I'll keep an eye on the weather and make a call around 5pm - currently it looks like 80% chance of rain 4-5pm, then dropping to 25% @ 5:30pm and to 0% 6pm and beyond... Worst case if it clears up @ 5:30 or shortly after we could always modify the route to accommodate a late departure. If we can't confidently & safely leave by 6pm then we'll cancel the ride.

Stay Tuned, hope to see you there.

Weather is cooperating, it looks like we are a go, any chance of rain is nearly gone and it's showing partly sunny for the duration of the ride.

See you @ 5:15pm
