Crotona Midnight Run: The Ritual of Watching the Weather

The 2013 Crotona Midnight Run is scheduled for Saturday – February 23rd. For the last 48 hours I have been rapt by the yearly ritual of watching the weather as that day draws closer.


Crotona Midnight Run Weather Forecast

By the look of the forecast for Saturday into Sunday – things aren’t shaping up so good. The temperatures are fine but a 70% chance of snow/rain? Eh, not so much.

Tiger – Patrol

The other thing that I’ve been wrestling with is what to ride. I really, really (really) want to ride the Tiger. But, if I were to take the Ural weather wouldn’t be as much of a concern.

Why the dilemma? It is entirely because of ride to and from the event start/finish in Yonkers. That is about a 75 mile slab ride from where I live.

Knowing how I tired I’ve felt in years past when the ride is over at 6:00 am, I just want to get home as fast as I can. With the Ural, as fast as I can… isn’t very fast.

But, then again the idea of riding home on the slab in a wintry mix after being up all night on any bike doesn’t sounds so good. Not to mention it might snow all through the actual event.

I wonder if Ramapo MC will reschedule or cancel on account of the weather? They have done that in the past. I guess we’ll know soon enough.

In the meantime ~ my dear friend Bill has been encouraging Kenny to put a boot on my bike to keep me from doing something stupid. How laughable. Clearly they both underestimates the power of my stupidity! 😉
