Lightning Policy

Oro Valley Lightning

We will ride in raid, sun, snow, and absurd heat, but we will not ride in lightning. If there is a lightning strike within 3 miles of our practice location within 30 minutes of practice start, we will cancel practice. The coaches use multiple methods to track local lightning strikes including the "Spark" feature of the "Weatherbug" smart phone app. Today at 1732 we had a strike 1.8 miles away from the parking lot. Sorry for the late notice, but we need to get some miles in and can't afford to cancel practice at every sign of a storm during monsoon season, so we'll make the call from the parking lot each day.
