    Orleans. Route subject to change depending upon wind conditions. Cancellations listed on kylistserve and club web site. If in doubt call. Expect dogs, possible gravel, wind, etc. Winter centuries are just difficult. Lights recommended. While I do not expect to be out after dark, mechanicals, wind, etc. can cause the unexpected. Better to be a good boy scout, regardless of your gender: be prepared.
