Short, Cold, WET ride

This morning was the second week for the park's bike program. Last week we called it off due to snow and ice on the trails but this morning it was just cold, windy and wet

We shortened the ride due to weather conditions but still managed 11 miles with temps around 40F, rain and 15mph winds. The ride out wasn't too bad since the wind was at our backs but the ride back was horrible. If you stopped pedaling the wind almost stopped you. Some people just don't have sense enough to come in out of the rain

I don't know how many times I heard those exact words from my mother. It was true then and it's true now.
