The new Thursday Granville 4:30 group ride got off to a troubled start. First, Jon the Dentist left a voicemail telling me he, Retro George, Farmer Mike and another were riding in the morning because of the forecast for rain in the afternoon. Then, the ride leader, Cindy B, let me know she was home with the Tuna flu, something less serious then H1N1 but also worse than a typical cold virus. I grew weary of listening to her litany of symptons and had to hang up. Still, the forecast had remained steady at only a 30% chance of rain, despite a green and yellow blob bearing down on us according to radar. I arrived at Wildwood Park at 4:00 and spent the 30 minutes until ride time watching a guy hit golf balls. Still no rain so at 4:30 I shoved off and at 4:35 the rain started. I headed back to my car and packed it in.
