As of Thursday afternoon, the B2 Ride for Saturday, Sep 30th is looking good weather-wise. The weather services say there's a 0% chance of rain. Temps predicted for Saturday AM are 75-88 deg F with some humidity to drive a 90 degree heat index so start hydrating on Thursday. Winds are predicted to be low at 7-10 mph from the SSE with no gusting predicted as of now.  

The normal weather related cancellation disclosure paragraph follows: As always if conditions early Saturday look "iffy" (like if the overnight rain chance looks to be happening) check this space, the PBA Facebook page and the calendar area of the PBA website for any update which I'll post by 5:45 AM. If you don't see any update by 5:50 AM then we're go for a 7:30 AM start (or at least a parking lot decision). Also look for any announcement from the PBA Ride Coordinator, Richard Bohansky. His decision to cancel developmental rides on Saturday, of which B^2 is one, would supersede whatever I might be planning to do. The Calendar page on the PBA website will also annotate the B^2 ride as Cancelled if the ride does get cancelled. 

The ride will start from the Gulledge Elementary School Parking Lot (just south of the Legacy and Preston Meadow intersection in Plano).  Remember helmet, gloves, water and flat repair kit. Please check air, brakes, gears and chain prior to riding. Please be ready to go at 7:15 AM at the start area for attendance taking and the normal ride safety briefing so we can start on time at 7:30 AM. B^2 is a no-drop ride that goes an average of 14 to 15 mph average over the 41 mile distance of the ride. The B^2 Route for this week is the 41.4 mi B2 Stacy, Angel Hwy, Parker Rd, McCreay, Betsy, Murphy Rd, Renner, with Independence-Parker Rd return. Planned speed is 14 - 15 mph average over the route. The link to the route is below:
