"As a meteorologist and a mountain biker, I've always had the vision of combining weather and cycling. Over the past year, I've provided relevant weather information for cyclists across the state of MN via my weather blog on MORC. Out of this idea, 2WheelWeather.com was born...like the MORC Weather Blog but with more emphasis on getting the cyclists involved in sharing a cycling experience impacted by weather, uploading cycling photos and videos, or talking about the micro-climates that make their local trails special. 2WheelWeather will be an interactive, national cycling community about weather and it's impacts on cycling."

"2WheelWeather will also be able to provide accurate, highly detailed hyper-local weather forecasts for events and races. A white-labeled race day forecast has proven to be a tremendous asset to any race website. Participants will keep coming back to the race website to get the latest weather updates and trail conditions. With previous race day forecasts that I've done, knowing the specific weather details for race day has helped with early registration and has been a benefit to racers, sponsors and volunteers. There's no denying that weather affects everything we do, especially when it comes to cycling!"

"Imagine getting a hyper-local quantitative precipitation forecast, seasonal outlooks, one-hour precipitation estimates, soil moisture anomalies and freeze outlooks for your favorite trail. The possibilities are endless for what can be included in 2WheelWeather's CycleCast."
Kristin's hope is that 2WheelWeather will be a valuable resource to all cyclists, whether they are doing a long distance competitive endurance race, a leisurely Saturday afternoon ride or a quick trip down to the local mountain bike trail. It is still a work in progress, but Kristin says, "2WheelWeather.com is rollin' along slowly but surely".
