Where'd The Sun Go???

I am just about over these H.T.F.U. rides. I know they are supposed to make you tougher, but DAMN! Every ride lately is foggy, rainy, cold, or all three! Personally, I don't think I could hack the Seattle or London weather patterns. This much wetness, and I'm banging my head on the wall in frustration. My hats off to our foul weather friends, who don't have a choice, and carry on regardless. Now that I sound like a fair weather whiner, I'll sign off and sit quietly in hopes that the rain backs off enough, so that I can do another damp, foggy ride tomorrow.

I went for a misty ride Friday evening and started off feeling good. Cut through KAte Sullivan school and surfed the drainage ditch around the bowl and things were grooving. But when I crossed the wooden bridge at the bottom, my ride slipped out like I was cornering on a frozen lake with slicks. I tumbled twice more over the next hour, each time getting a little more conservative. That mist made the pavement much slippier than any rain. It's still misty out there. I'm ready for cold temps, sunshine and new tires.

Wet wooden bridges are the worst. I couldn't tell you how many times I've been bitten by those over the years. Since many of those bridges live in the shade of the woods, they can harbor their evil treachory a day or more after the rains have stopped!
