    I hope it doesn't rain like it did last year. That was brutal.

    Just signed up for the double metric. There goes my goal of not going for mileage this year, just variety.

    Phew, I'm in, thanks Scott. I had no idea this would sell out so fast. Signed up for the double metric, rain or shine.

    I'm so much better prepared for rain this year than last. But, I've done 3 centuries so far in 2010 and I've made a resolution to not pay for non-doubles/DR.

    Still not understanding the appeal of riding in the rain. Sure you grow chest hair, but you'll just need to shave it off later anyway. Y'all are hardcore.

    The only way I can explain why I enjoy riding in the rain is with an question you can answer for yourself:

    Have you ever played in water? in the rain? jumped in the puddle? and enjoyed yourself?

    Doesn't this draw the appeal of riding in the rain?

    I guess it depends if you're going to let the threat of rain make you waste the money and avoid a stonking good time. You'd never ride outdoors from November to May if that were the case.

    C'mon Jack, where are yer stones, man?

    Of course, it is always possible to have an excess of stonage.

    Were those organized centuries or rides that you yourself constructed? I'm asking because I want to up my mileage.

    I didn't realize registration was so soon ... well, if I don't make it for WCC, there's always GPC.

    Hey, you got it. It's not too bad. I rode yesterday morning as well and got my share of showers. Yet I really enjoyed my ride.
    They key is to have the proper clothing to keep your upper body warm. My jacket is only water resistant (not waterproof) but very breathable and with a good windproof front panel so I was always very comfortable even going down Diablo. The other key point to protect, in my opinion, are the feet. Keeping them dry and warm makes a huge difference.
    May be it's me only but I think breathing is a lot easier when it's wet, like if there's more oxygen in the air. It's something I first experienced while running in College, I was always doing better when it was raining.
    Anyway Diablo was beautiful yesterday morning. I was almost alone and probably saw more worms crossing the road than I saw bikes. And only 4 or 5 cars. Perfect day on the mountain. Still a strange feeling at the Junction, nobody there not even a ranger.

    Really wanted to go again this year... the rain didn't scare me away... but i have to take my mother to the airport that day. By the time i get back it would be too late to start. =( needless to say i already asked her to change her ticket, she said no.

    Keep an eye on Craigslist as the date comes closer. People always have to drop out for one reason or another.

    Tell her to take the damn bus!

    Kidding, of course. That's some unfortunate timing. Oh well, next year!

    Tell your mother that airport security has greatly slowed down and she needs to be there however early you need to leave for the ride.

    Bump - so who's actually doing this? Hoping I made my sacrifice to the rain gods at Primavera and that I'll be treated to a dry WCC.
