Thank you for your responses. Based on your responses the Inspiration 50, scheduled for tomorrow (October 6), is CANCELLED. If you are already en route, please let me know when you hit town and I will gladly buy you a beer while we talk about what could have been.
Please know, we did not come to this decision lightly. If the Inspiration 50 was a race or anything other than a casual tour ride, it would be happening. However, given the intent of the ride (scenic tour) and the weather forecast, plus many of your responses, proceeding does not appear to be a sensible choice.
Unfortunately, this is the only weekend this event worked for Scott and me, so it will not be rescheduled. I hope that all of you receive this before you depart for the event.
Thank you for your support and interest in all things Inspiration Gravel. We are already talking about next year and have some new things planned for your gravel grinding pursuits.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Derek & Scott
