    Also, please check for road closures.  Per the news, some of the main roads in Louisville will be closed tomorrow.  You might want to use your GPS for guidance.

    Postponing the Ghost Ride till November 1.  I've been looking at the forecast -- hard to tell if it will rain or not but certainly the weather will be damp, wet and cool.  I'm nervous doing a ride at dusk in this sort of weather.  I will postpone the ride for 2 weeks until November 1.  Michelle and I will be at the beach the next 2 weeks as this will the Oldham County School Fall Break.  I'm thinking that the ghosts will still be there!  Thank you for your understanding.

    It appears that despite road closures and road construction, we will be able to get to Medora, just not the traditional way.  This is a HUGE reroute:  please don't plan on using one of the old GPS files.  We cross 39 but do not ride on it all.  Other roads have changed as a result.  All roads are paved though one has a gravel spot where they have done road repair. The new GPS file is https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31272603

    I rode the course today and the GPS file works.  Medora is already starting to decorate.  Please be aware that the road going into Medora is closed.  I was able to walk around the road closed signs and get over the creek with no problem.  Please be aware, however, that if there is rain the night before, it could be a tad muddy.  You will then have the chance of going through or by the covered bridge.  I strongly suggest walking the bridge as there are gaps between the flooring planks, but you are big girls and boys.  Stick an extra goo in your jersey pocket and be prepared in case the closed road would really close between today and Saturday.  I don't think it will, but it is best to be prepared.  If you feel adventurous and want a few extra miles, take in the old brick factory a few miles outside of town to the west.  Directions available upon request.

    Please be aware that there are numerous intersections on this ride where we will have a stop sign but the cross lane will not.  Remember to ride cautiously.  Some of the roads we are on will be familiar, and some will not.  Some that are familiar we are traversing in a different direction. Some will be happy to know that the hills on Hebron Church Road and Beagle Club Road are not on this route.  I believe it is as flat or flatter than the traditional Medora. 

    Please consider wearing pink since the celebration IS "Medora Goes Pink."  I do not intend to bring snacks for after the ride as has been done at times in the past.  Feel free to bring some if you would like.  Anyone that would like to join me for pizza at Good Fellas after the ride to celebrate the end of the tour is welcome. 

    To get to the ride start, take I-65 North from Louisville. (John, pay attention;-)  Take the Henryville Exit (18 or 19).  Go right on 160.  At the stop sign, go left on State Road 31 and take the first forestry entrance on the left.  The ride start will be 8:00 a.m.  The lunch stop is the festival.  Both store stops are in Austin:  different gas stations.

    At this point, the road into Medora is still closed.  There is a detour, but it is a few miles of gravel so probably not the best option.  I hope to do a final check a week from today.  If we still can't get there via the main road, another century will be substituted for the final TMD stage.
