Two skinny J's
Yea...in a Kayak Got my bike back from th shop today tho. Hoping to get a ride in tomorrow morning.
It sucks when the rain drops hurt against exposed skin. I've found that's frequently true of storms where the rain starts like someone flipped a switch. Way to HTFU! Looks like you had some pretty scenery to go with the soaking.A beautiful..ish ride today excluding tons of assholes and getting to mile 28 of 48 and riding home in torrential rain coming down sideways that actually hurt a bit to be very honest. The wind was NUTZ!
I got tot the top of the bridge and the wind hit and the rain cut loose in an instant it seemed.
The last mile home.
I'm right there with ya when it comes to most rain, but when the drops are big and driven by enough wind to cause pain on hitting exposed skin, I find the going difficult. Torrential is fine: one of my all time favorite rides involved rolling through a rain 'curtain' where one side was clear, the other side dumping like a cow p!ssing on a flat rock. Enough rain to force passing traffic to slow from the 55mph range down to ~25mph. Enough that the spray from my tires combined with the downpour to instantly fill my shoes with water, to say nothing of soaking me down like I'd jumped into a swimming pool. My teeth got an impromptu cleaning 'cause I was grinning the whole time. That was wonderful, but I'll be the first to admit that the addition of a hard wind would have quickly quenched my enthusiasm.I like the rain.....
