Slow Start

You might think, after so many bone dry, hot summer days, one would be eager to roll out into a rainy, 70-degree morning.  In all honesty, however, there was some minor procrastinating going on.  After glancing at the weather radar and the “100% chance of rain” forecast, cooking a big breakfast seemed like a good idea.  And one more cup of coffee.  And a couple of bike tweaks.  But, as the photo illustrates, the ride did finally start.

In about 3.5 hours of riding, there was zero rain.  There was what you might call an occasional drizzle, and it was a perfect day for fenders.  Just the kind of delightful contrast that someone weary of hot and dusty would want.  Why did it take so long to get out the door?

  1. @Steve. I agree. It seems most rain forecasts in my neck of the woods are for thunderstorms which includes lightning. I got caught out in one such storm a couple years ago. Pretty scary, alright. That said; I'm certainly grateful for the cool, rainy, overcast days we've had lately.

  2. Chris:Rain is refreshing, especially after the dry hot summer. I sometimes worry about being visible to automobile drivers. Other than that, it is a jolly good time!Glad you got to enjoy!Peace 🙂
