Rain Ride Sweetness And Whatnot
We weren’t particularly blessed with the nicest weather over the Easter weekend, but April’s been rather mightily awesome and the weekend had some sunny moments too. Monday morning it rained. My Viaje was dirty, so what the heck? I left for a short hill climb knowing that the hot shower at home was only a quick descent away. Gotta say rain days on empty mountain roads have something special that one never gets to experience on a sunny cycling day. There’s something extremely refreshing and there’s a cleanliness in the air that cannot be enjoyed in any other weather. Only wearing a rain jacket, I got home with my lower half of the body soaked to the bones. I pulled straight into the backyard and hosed down the bike, then went upstairs and jumped under a hot shower. Later, the poor Volagi got a thorough cleaning.
