    Temperature is still good and it looks like it will stay good until later this afternoon.
    It is raining here in Belterra. I'm gonna have a coffee and check with you guys before leaving the house

    Radar looks like whatever there was has passed and nothing more coming.
    I'm in.

    Small but dedicated group today, thanks for coming out.

    Wasn't even that cold . . . turned out to be a nice day out on the bike.

    Good news. Nabbed a 1/4 barrel for post-ride festivities.

    Also, we'll be doing the final group rides this Sat and Sun. 9AM, Dick Nichols lot.

    Most of the ride will be flagged (with environmentally sensitive, gluten free, free-trade flags). Don't want to hear any whining about getting lost

    Finally, we have no idea how many people are going to show up for this thing. If you're coming, would be a big help if you could ping us with a +1, +2, etc on the thread so we have an idea.

    Cheers!

    Now that some of this has been rerouted, can someone give an update on the new estimated mileage?

    There are two loops now, south and west. Both loops are just shy of 18 miles. 35 miles total. About 5 miles of that are wheels on street. 3 miles of Veloway. That means 27 miles of dirt.

    Next time will have the north included. This shortened route will work well for the inaugural event.

    That should be very singlespeedable, wish I had an 18t instead of my 20t

    I may have any extra 18t that I'd give you. FWIW, I ride my SS all over these trails with a 32:20 (on a 29er), but I'm weak and would rather pedal faster than push harder.

    I'll trade you that 18 for 2 of the fermenting buckets...

    32:20 is perfect on the hills, but totally sucks on the pavement. Rode from my house down to the greenbelt once. ONCE.

    Deal. Tonight might be a good night for me if you're going to be around. My wife usually kicks me out to the garage on Thursday so she can watch her chick shows. I'll shoot you a text.

    Update on ride calls for this weekend. As of now, forecast for Sat says low chance of light rain. If it rains, its a gametime decision. Will try to post up in the AM with a go/no-go.

    If no rain overnight, ride is on. Will be cold, so: It's chilly.. what's everyone wearing (for riding)?

    Same goes for Sunday. Keeping an eye on things and will try to keep everyone informed.

    Weather is not looking good for this weekend; lots of rain expected during the week and not enough time to dry before the event.

    Will make the official call by Wed afternoon, stay tuned.

    UPDATE: the Big Southie mountain bike ride is not looking good, but the Big Southie cyclocross ride is still on. because cyclocross bikes on Austin mud is the funnest kind of riding ever. meet me at DNP on Saturday with your CX bikes and let's go tear up some live oak root systems!

    UPDATE 3/4!!!! Ride is CANCELLED for 3/7, too much rain. We are pushing to our rain date of 4/4. Please do not ride muddy trails.

    If you forwarded this to any non-Mojos, please help spread the word.

    I hope the date move didn't inconvenience anyone. But now I know how AISD and other school districts feel when having to make these kinds of decisions. You have to call it with the information you have at the time. Just because the days don't turn terrible is not the decision makers fault.

    Today has turned into a good day but April 4th will be better!
