Updated NUMB weather forecast

They have revised the temperatures for next week. Now Saturday is supposed to be 91, still the hottest day. The rest of the days are from 84 to 86, with lows in the mid 60's. The highest rain chances are on Sunday and Wednesday at 30%. Full moon is still scheduled for Saturday. ;-)

Blessing the bikes

Pastor Dan Blessing the bikes. This was a few weeks ago, but I thought it was appropriate for this coming week.

Ritter Drive

Ritter Drive in Mona Shores, Michigan. There was also a Ritter Hills Rd. across the street too. I found this on today's 20 mile ride from Ferrysburg up the coast toward Muskegon. It's hard to find a good 25+ mile route around here without driving away from Ferrysburg. If I go west, I hit Lake Michigan in 2 miles, South - I have to cross the Grand River on US 31 over the drawbridge, East - I have to cross over Spring Lake and go through downtown. North is the best option, but eventually I hit Muskegon.

Time to start thinking about BRAN and NUMB

Dave (HuskerNut) has been busy guessing the route for NUMB. Check it out here for day 1:

I hope to make it back to Nebraska for NUMB. I don't have enough vacation days for both, and BRAN is more days. I just wish the snow would melt so I can get back on the roads and get some miles in.
