Why Day 1 of 2009 MS150 Was Cancelled

A friend of the Texas Children's team snapped these picutre of the grounds in La Grange. Obviously you can see why Day 1 and the overnight are cancelled.

Thanks to the MS150 folks for putting the safety of the volunteers and riders first. :) Seriously, even though it is somewhat of a dissapointment, they are doing the right thing. I'm certain though that there will be those folks to make the ride anyway, in spite of no rest stop or rider support. Hopefully they'll be safe.

We'll be heading out to La Grange this morning to find a place to park the RV and spend the overnight there so we'll be ready for the Day 2 start. Still should be lots of fun and riding into Austin for the finish at the Capitol is a great feeling.

They're talking 10 - 15 mph headwinds. They'll be slower in the morning, but will ramp up as the day goes on. Eh, can't be much worse than last year, right? LOL


  1. Whoa...it's crazy down there! I'm glad Day 2 is still up and running. Be careful and have a great time, D!

  2. We drove to Austin on Saturday, and wow, the weather was terrible for the first half of the trip. I'm glad they cancelled Day 1 for the safety of all the riders. It was bad!!!
