This rain sucks...

3 group rides in a row cancelled due to rain.

Once I get good at riding distance I'm going to commandeer the group and do rain or shine rides bwahahaha...

...I still have to order my fenders

Just send the rain this way. I won't be complaining, nor will I be cancelling any rides.

You can always go solo. But FWIW, riding for a good distance in the windy/cold rain isn't exactly fun.

I wound up going for a shorter solo ride. I need to relearn what to wear in the wet.

I should have gone tonight. It hadn't rained since noon but when 4:30 rolled around I became weak and didn't ride. I blew it.

Sunday, it was my wife that insisted that we stick with it and ride in the rain. For a California kiddo, she has adapted well to the NW.
