Rumor has it road bikes don't melt in the rain.

If the official ride is cancelled, anyone else want to test this theory with me? From the forecast, it looks like it'll still be quite warm, and any showers will be light - any rain might be refreshin'.

Plus for years afterwards we can tell everyone to gather 'round at Upper Crust and listen to the tale about The Time They Rode in The Rain.

Also: Weatherspark has weather radar that is THE BOMB (the forecast stuff is kind of rubbish, though):

I was hoping to do my first Wed night ride with some folks tonight. Is it still happening?

Check the status here: http://www.greenlinevelo.com/groupride

It currently says to check back around 4. Often Someone Official makes a post in this forum as well, as you can see from prior weeks.

I'll ride in the rain, done it before and I'll do it again!

If the ride is off, meet up at the same time/same place?

Hey Guys,

The official ride is off. It's not that we don't like to pretend that we are 'hard-men' in the tour and ride in the rain, but more to avoid any possibility of rain-related incidents.

Feel free to ride though. Stories of your heroism will be told for ages!

Nope. If the ride is off the ride is off. The Wednesday Night Rides only happen between May and September when there is enough daylight.
