Is it summer yet?

Calendar says June, weather says January. My cat is just looking at me. I think he is contemplating on doing me in.

Went to the LBS to buy a water bottle cage yesterday. When I made a comment about the prolonged winter weather, the cashier called it "June-uary".

Sequoia century tomorrow - after WCC 2009 and Primavera 2010 I figured I'd avoid a soaking organized ride this year. Apparently not.

I guess I'll put my winter fenders back on. Glad I didn't put away my rain gear.

I was going to go for a nice, long, relaxing ride today. Nope!

I'm going out for a short spin in the rain. I hate riding in the rain, but I hate weekend trainer rides even more!

I wonder how that Auburn Century is working out for the riders today. Toughness...pure toughness.

See anyone at Sequoia tomorrow?

Swapped my wheels and crank to my rain bike yesterday. I didn't think I would be riding it for a few months.

How depressing, even though my commuter has fenders, I really can't get the motivation to venture out.

+1 on the depression. It really needs to stop before Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) sets in. BTW, I heard that the suicide rate in Seattle is higher because of their constant miserable weather.

Yup ... I'll be out there. After two doubles in the rain, why not another?
