Southern Magnolia practice ride info
Hello everyone, I’ve continued to monitor the weather this morning. It’s never easy to call an event or reschedule. There are so many things to take into consideration.
The Number 1 thing is the safety of the riders and the people volunteering to help. At best tomorrow we will have wet roads. Wet roads are not our friends when cycling.
Number 2 we must take into account the fact that people have to drive to and from the event and they may be out driving in dangerous conditions.
Taking these things into Consideration as well as the forecast we are looking at this time, we have decided to go ahead and postpone tomorrow’s practice ride .
The ride will take place next Sunday, September 9 at the same time registration at 7:00 A.M. rolling out at 7:30, it will start at the same place the success community center. Please Help pass the word. I will need to get a head count all over again for next weekend on Thursday of this week.
Sorry for the Inconvenience but we feel this is the safest thing to do. ( also knowing the sun may now come out since we are postponing )
There’s always another day to ride.
