Did everybody get scared off by the rain? Just me, Kevin and Mark today. No rain, just damp pavement and gradually-clearing skies… nice enough to bring our regular bikes, although we did check the rain bikes last night to make sure they were good to go. Kevin and Mark rode on up ahead, doing a relatively-easy ride at 26-something for the climb. Me? About 2 minutes back, out of sight before even halfway up the hill.
Long-range weather forecast says no rain on my ride days, with Sunday showing a very-pleasant 73 degrees… and rain curiously scheduled for consecutive Wednesdays. I can deal with that. Bring it on, but only on Wednesdays. Once it becomes a sure thing I’ll even alter staffing at the shops for presumed fewer customers on wet Wednesdays. I like it. Leave the weekends nice & dry, and have that one not-nice day to make you appreciate the great days. Works for me!
