Final update.

** Please read all the way to the bottom for important details**.

First I am excited about everyone coming.
I rode the Friday and Sunday courses the last two days.
They are great. I just need to ask people to exercise caution this weekend, particularly descending. Everyone is responsible for their own safety on these rides.
We have had a very rainy summer, some of it very heavy. As a result there are more washed out areas than usual on the seasonal roads. Everything is perfectly ridable on our gravel bikes but we also have a lot of leaf fall already. Some of the seasonal roads are completely covered with leaves. In a couple of days there will be even more leaves and they will be wet. You won’t be able to see what’s under them and some of it is rugged especially on steep sections and where there are curves and turns.
So again, please be cautious. Having someone injured is not what we want to have happen this weekend.

Second, be aware that the weather is going to be very different on Sunday morning than it is on Friday afternoon. Bring some warm clothes. It will be in the 70s on Friday and in the 40s and damp on Sunday.

Finally, for the Sunday ride: The starting point is Basswood Pond State Forest.
0930 start.
It is west of Cooperstown, just off Route 16. The β€œusual” parking area for Basswood is on Conservation Road. You can not get there off Route 16 via Basswood Road because of flood damage from this summer.
We will be starting instead from the lot on Jacobs Road, which comes off Route 16 just east of Basswood Road. Turn on Jacobs from 16, go up the hill to the crest and look on your left for a brown and yellow NY State sign for the parking.
DO NOT just enter Basswood in your GPS and follow it, you will end up in the wrong place.

See you all soon!
