Water falling out of the sky challenges the motivation. The good news is that most of the streets I prefer to ride on will be pretty empty. I think today is the day to break out the goretex and hang the wind blocker up. On the other hand, the sun sets at 5:30 now, so it's time to HTFU and stop procrastinating.
How quickly does riding in the rain, or right after it's been raining, when the roads are still wet, wear out your drive train? Having a nice road bike has made me aware of the shortcomings of my cross bike ( handling, ride quality, 18 vs 32 lbs ), and I really prefer to be on the roadie. I don't care much about the chain, but what about the cassette, chain rings, and rims?
There'll be no end to the rain until June, but we'll get occasional breaks for a few days at a time.
