well, ok busted, I drank too much last night and I am still too worn out from Tuesdays ride and my colnago is clean, I will not take it out in that storm. My fondriest is my baby, and she derserves better than that crappy weather, and my litespeed is in 200 pieces. Well I can get a mountain bike, but if I rest I can put the wood to the boys on Sat. ride.
You Litespeed is your rainy day ride? wow. nmKristin

Yeesh...a little bit of rain keeps you off the bike?? Be a real man...ride through those torrential downpours that come down at 3" per hour, pedal against that 50mph headwind - hey,eventually it will be behind you, dodge those cars on the road that can't see 20 feet in front of them...be tough, be a man!

Just kidding you. I used to live in south Florida as a boy. I remember when those tropical storms rolled in. Nothing like trying to function normally in sub-hurricane weather. Batten down the hatches, matie!

oh my gosh I was taking you seriously in the first paragraph, ha ha good one.

Yeah the rain is dangerous on those skinny tires, which is the main thing. But read the post above, I did drink to much last night and I was kinda hoping it would rain. Besides I am bored so it is always fun to post something to light up this place.

Don't bother trying to ride in Atlanta. We've gotten rained on the last several evenings. If I have to clean my bike one more time *GRUMBLE*....

Just kidding...coming from a Pennsylvanian who has seen his share of wet weather this year. I can tell you my "Fred" Bianchi beater has gotten many miles this year due to the rain. Then when it did get nice, they oil and chipped my road! Ahhh, rural living at it's finest...rednecks and oil chips. what's next.
