Weekend Outlook

It's Wednesday morning and I just finished watching the morning weather forecast for the rest of this week and it doesn't look good. But I've learned a long time ago that the weather here in the Seattle area can change on a dime. I've seen predictions of raining all day turn into a day of sun breaks and vice a versa. So I am keeping a positive outlook for Saturday because it is the annual Tulip Pedal up in La Conner. I have done this ride only once in 2004 and that year the weather was absolutely gorgeous! Sunny and warm with clear blue skies and the colors of the tulips were stunningly brilliant! Proof . . . here's a picture . . .

I just hope it will be nice again this year. In 2004 only my hubby and I did the ride. This year it will be my hubby, our daughter, and me!
They offer two routes. A 20 mile and a 40 mile. In 2004 Joe and I did the 40 mile loop and it was beautiful. However, with so little riding this winter and spring I'm thinking the 40 may be too much?! I believe I can ride it but I'm not sure about hubby and daughter.
I guess we'll just have to see how this weekend meshes out. So stay tuned . . .
