The ride tomorrow out of East Hanover Park at 8:00. We will ride about 40 miles, passing through the Monroe Valley. The intended average speed will be 14 to 15 mph. AT 8:00 a.m. the temperature was forecasted to be 62F, while at 11:00 a.m., 67F. So, that is good riding weather, and to that we will add good roads. Be sure to bring plenty of water or suitable drink with electrolytes to keep hydrated.
