Six hours of the Waltz. Go left as the dark clouds go right, go straight when they are ahead (and the wind will push them past before you get there). Circles through more counties than I care to count. Helps to be able to ride pavement or gravel. With Bob for the first 3.5 and for lunch in Pine Island. Saw some of the Almanzo, some of the Ragnarok, Millville etc..
2 hours of grinding with the darkest cloud in the area. No where to hide... at least it was downwind, sideways rain pushing me at 25 mph.
Thirty minutes of pure sunshine as I rode though town and back home.
Cheq 100, 2015 - Lots of rain this year. Around 63 out of 130 or so that started, finished. I came in at the middle of the pack of finishers, 28th. Results page. 85-90 miles...
