When it rains, go ride.


We got rain today! Some real heavy storms rolled through this afternoon with visibility at about 75 to 100ft at one point. Luckily I was able to get home on the bike after it let up. It was a nice light rain all the way home and it was good to feel cool again after riding with temperaturs in the 90's.

The fenders and rainproof bags make it an enjoyable ride. And the fixed gear gives extra braking to make up for the weak wet rim braking. After last night’s races in the heat I was just as drenched as in today’s rain. At least tonight I was able to dry off and stay dry! No that easy when it isjust hot and muggy.

Keep the rain coming; we need it!
