Section 6 “Cycling Is An Outdoor Sport”
Paragraph 7 (Addendum)
Once within 24 hours of the start of any Brevet (or similar, long-distance, previously agreed upon ride), there can be no bitching about the weather. The existing weather conditions may be observed and stated, without embellishment, during this time period. Further, anticipated weather changes or deviations from previous estimates and/or forecasts should be shared with other Brevet participants. However, this information should be free from editorial comments of any kind.
e.g. - “Light rain has been falling in the San Rafael area for the past 15 minutes.”
