I wish I could say the same, it's supposed to rain for our race. It doesn't start for another five hours though.

I think the blog is a great idea, especially if you can include some Simon-esque hand-drawn race photos... or, should I say, "drawrings."

Here's the crowd amassed at the start to watch... The guy in the middle appears to be Hipcycler--boy, he came a long way to see this one!

The world definitely needs more blogs and DJs.

Drawrings are cool.

Racing in the rain isn't that bad, just dirty.

Pete, a Simon-esque "drawring" would have window panes showing it was a scene from out of a hotel window. And you'd have to have "prune 'ands."

Botto, your depth of detail in the telling is simply stunning.

It's tough for grass to grow over a busy road.

I'd PM you pics, to show you that I actually do have hair, but that'd be creepy.

if it makes you feel better, there were enough puddles on the course for my bike and team kit to get dirty.

Just be happy you have a team kit to race in botto.

I am the Unknown Cyclist. I'm thinking of adding a paper bag over my head too.
