I planned to do 100K on the Freedom Tour today but the weather just wouldn't cooperate. A friend and I started the ride in a light rain with plans to take the 50K route if it started raining harder. But by the time we reached the 10 mile mark it was pouring and there didn't seem to be any relief in sight
Our shoes were soggy, glasses were steaming and the rain tickled my nose as it dripped off the end. In addition I was being sprayed by his rooster tail coming off his recumbent After riding through a reserve area and climbing the dam we decided to call it a day and head back to our cars.
At least we did one of the nicest parts of the ride, got a water bottle and t-shirt before abandoning the ride. There's always tomorrow
