At this writing (Thursday, March 16th 4 PM) the weather for Saturday morning March 18th has a 10% to 30% chance of rain storms for the Plano area. Temps are is predicted to be in the low to mid 60's for an 8:00 AM start on Saturday, March 4th. If the rain does come in across the Step-Up riding area by 6:15 AM Saturday or if a lot of rain already came through and soaked much of the Step-Up ride area overnight, I'll put out a cancellation notice on this webpage. If you don't see that cancellation notice by 6:30 AM, then I'm planning to be at the start area and we'll call a go/no-go from there.
Please meet at the start area south of the KFC in the parking lot at the northwest corner of Coit and Spring Creek at 7:45 AM for the pre-ride briefing ready to go so we can ride off at 8:00. We'll plan to do the normal Step-Up 33.5 mile route at an average of about 13 MPH. Avg for the last couple of Step-Up rides was 13.7 and 13.1 mph.
Please give your bike a good look over mechanically as well as air up the tires in prep for the ride and don't forget water, helmet, gloves, etc.
