Update: With a now 90% chance of rain, tomorrow's HRU is cancelled, but all is not lost.  The ride will instead take place on Thursday at 9AM, when the forecast is for cloudy weather, but no rain.  I can tell you from recent experience that there will be some wet roads along the way, and likely a few muddy spots where the hillsides have washed down.  The muddy spots are very short, so I encourage everyone to walk across and remount rather than riding through.  If you do that, you'll be amazed how easy it will be to simply brush off the other debris, once you get back to the start.

Starting location and time: Meet at Shoup Park in Los Altos; 8:45 AM for a 9:00 AM departure.

Rain is predicted for Wednesday, but the small window that was there over the weekend appears to be closing.  All the weather services I looked at are showing 80% chance of rain, so if we do get to ride, we'll stay somewhat close to the start, and on this side of the hill, in case it gets wet en route.  I found this particular route in the HRU archives.  It seems to have come from a file called "Mike K's Swansong", but with a few extra wiggles added, just for fun.
