Our luck ran out today. Despite only a 10% chance of rain at ride-out time, we were getting rained on within the first 15 minutes, so our group of 12 riders decided to head directly back from Palo Alto to Mountain View, making today's ride a grand total of 9 miles. Thanks to everyone who showed up, especially those who came from far away. Especially this early in the season, safety takes priority over everything else, and I appreciate your understanding.
We're going to try the ride again next Sunday, same time, same place. Early indications, however, are that the weather may still be a problem, but we'll see how this wet and stormy week plays out.
