the forecast was for rain starting at 2, so we figured we’d start at 10:30 and then just be miserable for the last 90 minutes. well about 20min in the temp dropped 10F and it rained off and on for the rest of the ride. thankfully we each had wisp jackets and Erl had 2 latex gloves and 4 poop bags which we broke out in Augusta. tried to climb a lot in prep for Epic and also to keep warm. 2x up Femme Osage, 1x Terry and 1x Schluersburg, plus Duke and Hamburg, and i cant believe that’s only 1600’ of climb.
