Weekend Riding Forecast: May 2-3
Updated: May 1
Vermont is still under the Governor's stay-at-home order to protect against the Coronavirus pandemic, but it is still a possible to get and do some local riding. This weekend's riding is looking to be the best of 2020 with comfortable temperatures and clear skies both Saturday and Sunday.
Friday's weather is calling for a rainy start across the state with a strong chance of rain throughout the day. There may be some lighter showers in the afternoon with temperatures in the mid-50's.
Only a few days ago Saturday's weather was looking bleak. That has all changed with sun and comfortable temperature from mid-50's to mid-60's likely throughout the state. International Female Ride Day is Saturday and women riders should be able to get and celebrate the great weather.
International Female Ride Day is a pure riding event for women throughout the world. There is no central organized event, but rather it is a day for women riders around the world to get out with their friends and simply ride. It is the perfect event for social distancing, since there is no centralized event to cancel.
Sunday is promising to be the day that we have been waiting for, with sun and temperatures in the mid-sixties and possibly reaching 70 throughout the state. The riding should be excellent!
The Keene Motorcycle Swap is traditionally the first Sunday in May, but the New Hampshire stay-at-home order is still in effect through Monday May 4. The swap meet organizers haven't posted an update -- except to say that May 3rd is off -- but as of April 29th the swap meet Facebook page indicated that they hold the event Sunday May 31.
