First of all, I don't ride in the rain. I just don't want to deal with bringing a drippy bike indoors and wet clothes, plus I don't have fenders. So yesterday I checked the weather report before bedtime.. 'cloudy'.. ok, that's not rain.. Today, I look out the window, it's cloudy but not raining. I start to ride, it's still not raining.
A few miles in, a light drizzle starts. Not a big deal.. a little later, steady semi-heavy rain. It stayed that way the rest of the ride. It sucked.. rain on my face, in my eyes. My gloves are soaked, my shoes feel like they have buckets of water sloshing around, pedals are slippery, takes twice the distance to stop, road dirt on my clean saddlebag.. I don't ever want to ride in the rain again.
