Weather

As the team knows from previous trips, the weather can also be miserable. The ride takes the team along much of the edge of Lake Superior, and as the team approaches the Great Lakes the temperatures will drop and they may experience biting fog or freezing precipitation. Once they arrive at the base of Mount Washington, “the home of the worlds worst weather,” anything can happen. Once they make it through the Presidential Range of the White Mountains, the weather will remain cool and mild during the final legs to Maine.
