Liquid Sunshine

Poured down on the way home. That's the third time now and the first caused great mirth back at the office. It doesn't seem to worry me. Prolly cause the rain's still warm.

Anyone else not mind it?

PS. I keep reading about bent bikes, what the hell is that please?

Well it's raining this morning girls. I haven't done the trip to work in it but I do believe I'm not going to quit. It's going to be inconvenient but then I'm still dedicated at this point. ... and no BB, I haven't joined the ranks of the insane yet.

Quit gassing about, man. Put on your waterproofs and ride.

Rain would be an interesting change from the snow we're still having.

Does that mean you have hair, and a generous amount of it?

Good analogy since I can't remember what hair on MY head ever looked like when long enough to get... frizzy.

I'm glad my bike is made from aluminium. All this water around it would be rusted through if it wasn't. Funny thing, the saddle/seat/chair looks as though it's rotting... and rotting hard. Is it just the water? Are there any stats on "Wear and tear and an all bean diet"?

Wear and tear on bike seats is pretty nasty with a high bean diet just ask Slvoid.

Ew my seat smells, what do I do?
