Well, New York has certainly had enough rain this week, especially Albany, so I predict no rain this weekend! Which means plenty of time to get out on the bike and visit all your friends around town at all the events that are scheduled for the next few days (I don't know how anybody will be able to choose between all of the cool stuff going on this Saturday, so there may be some "party hopping" that day...). Whatever you do, remember to ride safe, don't drink and drive, it's so not worth it, sleep in somebody's car if you have to--it's worth it to see the sun rise again. Have a great weekend!
