    Boy, I don't feel so bad about no going today. I did 49 miles through Tiverton/Westport. I stayed dry, but it was pretty darn windy. Legs feel like I did 99.

    As was I, until I woke up and my yard was under water. Car was packed, fenders installed and ready to go, but I just don't feel like I can leave my wife at home with a flooded yard. With my luck,...

    From the rain or from sweat? The longest ride I've done in the rain was probably about 2.5 hours. My hands were damp (but warm) from what I have to believe was sweat and not rain.

    For the cold, I use a pair of neoprene gloves I picked up at Walmart. They are fleece lined and do a good job at keeping my hands warm so long as it's not to cold. I wouldn't chance them below 40F...

    I just ordered 4 from Price Point for under $3 each. They were running a free shipping deal, so I figured it was worth a shot. I will report back if I run into any issues with them.

    Ride a double metric. I'll have a few options, so this should be doable.

    Ride the full D2R2. This will prove to be difficult due to the logistics involved, but I'm keeping it on my list.
