Update Saturday: You can go back to bed. Today's ride is cancelled, due to rain and thunderstorms in the area. By the time they clear out it will be too hot to ride. I have plans Sunday, so I won't be able to lead a ride then. It will be quite hot this weekend, so stay hydrated.
This week, we will ride to Northfield, leaving Rosemount at 08:00 and going counter-clockwise. We'll stop at Blue Monday for some refreshments and return to Rosemount before the temps get into the 90s.
The last several weeks, we've had at least one flat tire each ride, so please check the condition of your tires before your next ride. Our web site has several tips about avoiding flats and tire care and that may help you from becoming the next rider to be changing a tube at the side of the road.
Finally, I've received membership dues from 34 riders so far this year, which is about half of the people on our mailing list. Your participation and financial support is necessary and appreciated. Thanks to everyone who has contributed.
