that storm blew over us with some rain, the roads dried up the wind got stronger and I went for a ride. I did a 20 mile loop as I got stuck at work late and missed an early ride. I rode with a group and had a great ride, the wind was strong. Anyway yesterday I was posting that I would not ride and I did, and I am happy now.

Yeah and I got power ha ha.......

I spent an hour and a half in the rain yesterday. It was supposed to be hot and humid, but all that humidity decided to come down in my area. I had forgotten that White Lightening chain lube only lasts about a half hour in the rain. I spent the last hour making jokes about my knees squeeking.
The only down side of my rainy ride, was that the rain wrecked my "Sponge Bob" sticker on my stem.
I was thinking about you guys....PEDDLEFOOT

Both the Spin Dr. and the "New" ride stayed out the whole time. The Spin Dr. ride went back to a counter clockwise direction, and the "New" ride went clockwise.

I have been able to ride some. It has rained in Tampa and Inverness almost every day. I do not mind the rain, but I sure hate the lightening.
