Two days ago, I took my hybrid to LBS to change out the rear cassette. It was one of those unexpected/expected Southern California showers. Often, we get teased about the possibility of a shower and it does not happen. Anyway, the LBS' mechanic looked almost envious. Getting my bike to the shop, I got a little wet.. I packed a plastic raincoat in my pannier in case.
The mechanic quipped, wish I was off to go out in the rain..I know once this speed demand did a 2 century ride, mostly in the rain and did great time.. Do you look forward to rain? I do not think this mechanic considers moving to Seattlle, and getting away from the So. Calif. Sun...! Maybe here rain is a uncommon, so it is a change.? There is a chance of rain. I know, I set pondering what to wear. For if it does not rain, I will be too hot and do not want to carry more than I need.
So to assure I get out in this threat of rain, I dress up early, so I have no choice. I am then committed. So do you go out for a ride in the rain, when you needn't...?
