I know. I am in Westchester and Sunday went out early hoping to beat it but didn't. Yesterday AM same and got rained on for just a bit. I will try tommorrow AM and keep fingers crossed. Hate riding in the rain. Dangerous for one but it forces me to clean my bike!!

Where in Westchester do you ride? We might be passing each other in the A.M. (I'm out at about 5:20-:30 a.m.).
NY Times Weather Forecast today was really funnymerckxman
Aug 5, 2003 9:59 AM
This was in the NYTimes this morning, for the Tri-State Area...

Wednesday: Rain. Heavy at times. Followed by periods of precipitation.
Thursday: Lingering showers throughout the day. Chance of rain 800 percent.
Friday: Moist. Damp. Sodden.
Saturday: Rainish. Showery. Precipitacious.
Sunday: Light rain followed by heavy rain followed by pouring.
Monday: Unseasonably rainy in the morning. Uncharitably rainy in the afternoon. Unconscionably rainy in the evening.
Tuesday: Endless showers broken up by occasional flooding.
Wednesday: Remember "Waterworld"? Like that, only with more rain.
Thursday: Not sunny. The opposite of sunny. Just forget about sunny, O.K.?
Friday: Clearing just long enough for you to make weekend plans. Followed by obscene amounts of rain.
Saturday: Take a wild guess.
Sunday: Incessant, spirit-crushing rain. The kind of rain that makes it futile to get out of bed in the morning. The kind of rain that seems as if it will never end. And guess what? It never will. Ever. Do you understand?
Monday: Please go away.
Tuesday: Ample, brilliant sunshine throughout the day. Wait --- did I say sunshine? I meant rain. Really hard rain.
"% chance of rain" has a different meaning in the NEgeeker

It rains every day. "30%" means that it only rains for 30% of the possible 24 hours. Etc.
Yeah...another ride in the rain....bicycle268

I'm getting pretty tired of drying my shoes off after every ride!! Just got back from a 45 miler with the last 20 in 'super-soaker mode. At least when I went through Summit I didn't get pelted with hail or hit with a tornado (this seems to be the norm in your town, newridr!!)

FWIW- when the rain stops I'm out the door to finish my ride!!
Yeah baby...hill repeats in the rain...puts hair on your chest..biknben

Where are you guys located. Is that Summit, NJ you mentioned?

I'll be doing hill repeats outside of Princeton at 6pm regardless of the weather. Builds character!!! Most motivating time to train is when you know your competition isn't!!!

At lest this is what I keep telling myself.
You actually rode in this slop??newridr

I drove through New Providence earlier and it was flooding. You put the water wings on for your ride??
