If I was to be riding my bike back and forth to the train each day, one day or another I was bound to get rained on. Well, today was my baptism of … water. It was sprinkling when I first left the train station, which turned into a full rain about halfway home. Even with that, it wasn’t so bad. Last week I only rode one day because every day it was supposed to rain and it never really rained when I’d have been travelling. Today it was “widely scattered showers” and of course it rained on my ass. Better to get over it sooner rather than later. Now I feel up to anything, bike commute wise. It does help the pedalling motivation when you are trying to get out of the rain. Today was the best time I’ve made yet.
