My Friday morning ride ended up being a soggy one. The rain started fairly light early on, but picked up halfway through. Luckily I don't mind riding in the wet. I've accumulated a nice collection of functional riding gear from living in New York to keep me happy. My new bike didn't falter or miss a beat through the puddles.
Figuring I'd be the only one out on the trails I was surprised to see two guys in t-shirts and shorts chugging away on the first climb. I passed them quickly and made my way to other side of the loop. This mornings ride reminded me of growing up in the Northwest, where it's always raining and cold.
