Bike Club Cancelation - 17 July

Forecast looks too gnarly to host bike club. Heavy rain is already a bummer to ride in and the chance of storms keeps going up. We’re going to try to find a reschedule date - looking at August 28th as a possibility.

Bummer, we know, and we're superstitious enough to believe that calling it off almost certainly guarantees that nothing will happen, but wanting to err on the side of caution. We'll pick things up in TWO weeks, Wednesday, July 31, 4:00pm.

Thanks!
