I got on the road for this year’s ride just before 9:00. I headed toward Bingamtom on I88 and then 17 turning south into Pennsylvania onto rt220 near Elmira just east of the large area of rain that I could see on the radar map. I did my best to stay away from the rain for a few hours heading in the general direction of Altoona. I rode some secondary roads through Pa until about 2:30 when I decided it was time to turn west on I80. I put my rain gear on and prepared to get wet.
Almost immediately after turning west, it started raining. For the remainder of the day, I rode through a variety of light, moderate, and heavy rain storms. The temperature was in the mid 50’s so it was not exactly a pleasant ride. I stopped for the night about 10 miles east of Akron OH. I’m looking forward to sme drier riding tommorrow.
