cross the Kanc
Lunch in Lincoln
My man hood would shrink
long range forcast has Kanc weather at high of 14, low 0, partly cloudy, 60% chance of snow showers , winds out of WNW @ 43mph
I bet it will be quite nice up at the pass
I will not be in attendance, though some pics would be cool.
If the weather between now and then results in clear roads, I may join you.
Meet at Honey Dew Donuts in Farmington (Route 11 & Rt 153)
we'll be heading out at 9:45AM
Weather is now forcast to be Sunny, not much wind, 10% chance of precip
Laconia forcast is high 25°, low 7°, Mt Washington high 11°, low -10°
I expect temps to be around 20°for most of the ride, cooling down to about 10° at Kancamamgus Pass
please post pictures
I got to HoneyDew Donuts about 9:20, RedAnt was there waiting. after a coffee & donut we were off, Route 153 and Kings highway to Wolfeboro, Then 109 to 113 in Center Sandwich to Route 16 in Chocorua
temps never really warmed up, mid to high teens all morning, on the Kanc, wind picked up considerably, temps dropped to single digits, no dusting of snow, but pavement was damp with brine
this was the coldest Kanc Ride I have done
We stopped at GH Pizza in Lincoln, then fuel before heading back on Rt 175 to holderness, Rt 3 to Weirs Beach and RT 11 home
Frost Heaves were horrible
wow, you guys are truly gangster. I could never. Good on ya.
