I rode 101.40 miles yesterday, my second century in 16 days. I had to dodge storms and occasionally take shelter under store overhangs or picnic shelters but I got in a good ride anyway. 30 days ago I had a 90 mile ride and several 60 mile training rides prior to it.
This has been a banner year for cycling and I owe it all to bad weather. We've had an Upper Level Low Pressure system stalled over the NE since late May and the weather has been somewhat wet. In fact it's been very wet and exceptionaly cool. I have many tasks to do at home this summer but they're all dependent on a long spell of dry weather and it just ain't happening.
So as long as it's going to rain nearly every day (and by rain I mean severe thunder storms) I'll be able to ride, ride, ride. Ahhh....life does have its moments.
