Only 400 fucking miles of rain today.  I'm overnighting in Florence.  I swear this event is rain cursed.

See you in Weaverville tomorrow.

It's much easier if you just accept it.

You won't see me there.  When I said I was going to make it I failed to realize that Monday is the day my kid graduates high school, so there is no way I could be out of town this weekend.

Somehow I had it in my mind that WCRM was going to be the weekend after the kid's graduation, but in retrospect. I have no idea why I had that impression.  I should have looked at the calendar a bit more closely.

Have fun and ride cheerfully, folks.  I'll see you at .5

After riding an hour south from Florence yesterday in pounding rain with the prospect of 340 more miles and 3 more wet days ahead, I went to plan B.  Bailed for home.  

Maybe next year.

It was 32C and sunny on my ride home from France today, with a gentle breeze. Clearly you need to move the WCRM to Europe  Bigok

Well, only three of us had the fortitude to brave the elements. DNA, Knobnose and myself were all that arrived in Weaverville. Wednesday's run from Vancouver to Eugene was not bad. Mostly sunny and warm. Camped out at Dexter Lake, and woke to rain.

Spent Thursday riding from Eugene to Redding. The original plan was to ver night at Castle Crag State Partk, but the cold wet weather precluded that, so Ipressed on to Redding and found a Travelodge.

Friday's very quick run to Weaverville was in the rain. Got there early and basically just lazed about.

Knobnose arrived late afternoon. We sipped a couple of beers and whiskey, and had some Mexican food for dinner. When we returned to the 49'er, DNA had arrived from the Bay Area.

Saturday the weather in Weaverville was cool, but sunny. We ripped down 3 to 36. That portion was nice. Along 36 we hit some pretty cool and wet weather. Quick stop for fuel and Rotten Ronnie's in Fortuna (sunny, breezy, and warmish). UP 101 to the 299 and back to Weaverville. A mixed bag of sun, then rain and cool temps. All told, however, a very fun ride.

Sorry the rest of you didn't make it. We had a good time.

So, should I find it amusing that the good ride of the WCRM was a loop that could just as easily have started and ended in Fortuna as in Weaverville?

But it was very different. It started in Weaverville, and ended there.   Wink

Sucky about the weather. Glad some of you had fun at least.

As someone who remembers the ride from Grants Pass to Crescent City in the freezing rain (with occasional snow) as one of the worst times of my life, I once again wish that the WCRM was later in the year. Love the area, hate the time of year.

I think it's been brought up many times since I joined in what, 2002 or 2003? It never gets changed due to date conflicts. :P

No, but we have had many WCRM .5 events in that time of the year.

True. I would just really like to ride the northern coast during good, somewhat reliable weather.

We've had several WCRMs that had nice weather, It was beautiful on Monday - I rode back to Eureka on 96/299 with with temps in the mid 60s-mid70s, clean roads and no traffic. Our timing just sucks. Mine especially, after the oven that was Weaverville last time I brought my cooling vest and left the heated one -I could have used it in the snow on 3  over Scott Summit on Sunday.

Early June is a time of highly changeable weather in the mountains. I would not dream of holding an event here at this time of year. The weather is so changeable and cold fronts abound. Once you hit about the third week of June some settling occurs and some warmth begins to stay.
This morning here, is 9c of about 47f ... pretty chilly. It will be windy and the odd tstorm will blow through. Above 4000 feet that means sleet or at least very cold rain.

The WCRM needs to move to a later date. Pure and simple. Those big redwoods that abound in NorCal and SoOregon are there for a reason.
