All Wet

Gloves and shoes soaked through at about 3 hrs into the ride. Drizzle for the whole ride with hard rain for the last hour. I guess that's better than snow, but I could've used a sunny 80 miler today. Taking the studs off Evil was as close as I came to feeling the road. Solo 60. I've said this before, but there is something about riding in the rain. Of course you have to stay warm, or it's total misery, but there's a freshness, a cleanness, a newness, even a bit of a promise that comes from the rain. Everything looks....more alive, I guess. I like that it melted some snow, and added some water to a drought burdened landscape, but, like in Camelot, couldn't it rain at night, or at least, not on a weekend? Missed Amy. 60/16.0

Solo today? Where did everyone go? Rained here too all day. Looking forward to salt-free roads soon!
