chancetstorms Partly cloudy with a chance of a thunderstorm and a chance of rain in the afternoon. High of 91F. Winds from the WSW at 10 to 15 mph. Chance of rain 20%.

We will be heading pretty much WNW from Quincy today, which means we’ll have the wind working against us off our port bow all day. That will make the work of riding a bit harder, but on the plus side the wind in our face will make it feel a bit cooler.

We’ve decided to skip riding through Boston so we are going to ride from home down to the Quincy Center ‘T’ station and ride the Red Line out to its terminus in Alewife. The Minuteman Trail starts right next to the ‘T’ station, and that will take us another 10 miles out from Boston, until we are beyond the I-95 / Rt 128 inner loop, and we are heading out through Lexington and Concord. If all goes well we will be atĀ PearlĀ Hill State Park tonight.
