My go/no-go point can be as late as 8:00pm Saturday. I'll be away-from-keyboard most of the day, back late afternoon. So far I see "maybes" from wsbob, K'Tesh and Swoosh...commit!!

Everything says the clouds and rain should be moving out around 6pm tomorrow.

I use this site as my weather guide:

I'm still a go unless this changes for the worst.

I think I probably won't be there. You'll have a fine time though. Got to say, a few clouds won't hurt. I was up late Wednesday night..12:30-1:30 plus. The sky, striated by clouds with the moon peering through was beautiful. The moon seemed to be about 45 degrees up from the horizon. Better than a perfectly clear moonlit night.

I did this ride Tuesday as the clouds were leaving. It was a really nice night for a ride.

Red face I had to miss it...

I was on my bike at 9:30Pm-11Pm riding from Sherwood to Beaverton . It took an hour to get home, but I kept going to do some grocery shopping.

I'm a newbie to bike riding but I have been biking about 10 to 15 miles, 2 times a week. I have been looking for some folks to ride along with me so I hope you don't mind but I would like to join you guys tonight.

I have to bail...today ran way late and I can't turn the train around fast enough to make it. Still mostly cloudy here, maybe better over there to the west, but even with broken clouds it should be a pretty evening. Have a great ride, Swoosh and Simple Nature, and hopefully a straggler or two will show up, too.
