House is in the path of totality...Although I'm thinking of riding south to be in the dead middle...also just to say I rode during a solar eclipse. Normally I'm not out and about at peak UV, but I think I'll make an exception.
2 years back I completely-by-accident did a long commute ride during a complete lunar eclipse at 6AM and it was sweet.
We've got a semi-large contingent that are going to do a gravel climb that goes from 2k elevation to 5k in about 15 miles. Where we're at (Southeast TN), we'll get 2 min. 38 sec of totality, which is within 2 seconds of that max on our continent. I think with our gravel plans and clever logistics, we'll avoid a lot of traffic and people.
I am totally stoked for this. Extended weather forecast doesn't look great in our area. If the skies are clear it's supposed to be an incredible show. Nonetheless, it's still gonna get dark for over 2 minutes.
I think there are two other eclipse threads floating around....
