This does not happen often, but the weather has forced the Arkansas Bicycle Club to make a one day delay for the start of the Lake Ouachita Tour ride. The event will now start at 9:30 AM on Sunday February 25, 2018, which is that one day delay. Hopefully, the forecast will stay the same as it is now so that we have 3 nice days (for February in Arkansas) for the event. The continuing forecast of 100% chance of rain Saturday and Saturday night forced our change.
We will have a total of 7 miles of dirt roads for the 3 days. These roads may be a little muddy, but we will make it with the use of some patience.
At this time the forecast is calling for lows of 38 and 40 degrees for the two camping nights. This is much warmer than we often find on this trip, so that is a good thing. The highs will be around 60 degrees and partly cloudy. Of course, all this is subject to change.
Once again, I will be riding my trike and pulling a trailer for his trip. This will be my first attempt with this rig, so anyone worrying about the speed of the riders please do not. I will be plugging along way back there and enjoying the scenery.
I would like for everyone to bring a card, or two, with your name, phone number and contact person, with their phone number, in case of an emergency.
For any questions please call me at 501-231-9350.
