Mitram,

I highly doubt Willie Hunt has any plans to cancel the event. I certainly hope not.

Yes, the forecast does include high winds. But, after the first 1/5 of the ride the winds are predominantly tailwinds. 

Note that we had similar wind speeds in 2022, but cross/head direction. That was a tough day of cycling. ("Character building" is what Terri Boykins would call it.) I'm looking forward to Saturday's ride.

Hello there,
Do we have a concern of high wind for this weekend?  The wind speed from JT through Vegas is constantly high at about 12 - 28MPH with gust wind between 45-50MPH.  When will we make decision to still ride or cancel? We would like to know before the 29th so we don't lose money on hotels too.

Best regards,

Maitram

Look at that tailwind !! .  Nice !!.
Have a great ride everyone.

 

In 2018 (02/10/2018), we got 43 miles of brutal headwind heading toward Vegas.

There are no plans to cancel the ride.  It is often windy out in the desert, so this is not unusual or unexpected.  
Each rider will have to decide for themselves if they feel comfortable with the conditions.  There is no shame in a DNS if you really don't want to do the ride.

Okay great to hear. I’m on a smaller rider, so I feel the wind tossing me around no matter what direction but will try. 

Thanks

As already pointed out, the high winds seem to be mostly a tail wind, which will make the ride much easier.  You can see the hour by hour predictions at www.windy.com.  The one leg to the I-15 may be a headwind, but it's not that many miles.  And for anyone that finds the winds are too much too handle, you can drop always drop-out (DNF)   That is one reason we have SAG vehicles on this ride; you can always be picked up and shuttled forward, to the finish if needed.

I will be sending bulk Email to all the riders soon (likely tomorrow morning) with all sorts of details.

Hi all, 
 Aaron forgot his bib shorts and if you bring extra socks too that would be great. He wears a M or L.  If you can let me know will be much appreciated. 

Anyone is still coming from OC can still bring a pair of bib shorts size M or L for Aaron.

Please call +1 (757) 642-8768 (Aaron’s number) 
Thanks so much
