The viking ride is not taking place at the usual time or place.

I noticed that. Sorry I couldn’t come. It was too late when I found out

Well, it was the usual time and place for the annual Viking Ride. Like the Scottish village of Brigadoon, it only comes to life for four hours a year, then sinks back into the landscape.

Ha, turned out great. A few booms and no rain. And ice cream at the end. A fun time was had by all.

Thank you, RusRed for posting this.

Thunder. Lightening.

We had a 412Feast Flock  at the closest eatery.  It was fun.   I ate a lot.

I rode through Schenley park a few times afterwards.  It was beautiful.

The rain is expected to occur after 9pm.

National Weather Service forecast discussion here.My info is from the 9:25pm Thu version.

Quote:
Latest model runs have trended several hours slower than
previous thinking… bringing the main line of thunderstorms
into the area from the NW after around 00z… and into the
Pittsburgh Metro area by roughly 9-10 PM.

They’ve moved up the onset to “from 8-9 pm”, but it still sounds like the ride should be OK, just don’t stay out too late and/or have someplace to go for cover while the storm rolls through. In short, normal conditions, keep an eye on the sky.

What is it with this ride and rain? Huge thunderstorm at Millvale Park after the end.

Stu and I went to Subway to wait out most of the rain. After that, We waited for the 1 Freeport Road bus in opposite directions at the same stop. I went back to Aspinwall and he went to Downtown to get his computer so he could get the bus back to Ross Park and Ride.

The Flock will meet at Dippy tonight at 6.  Rollout will be promptly at 6:30.

I’m not sure where it will end up, but we’ll roll through Bloomfield first, then wherever by consensus.
