Another Wet One

IMG_20130418_080314

Well, that certainly was a wet one!

We had a strong line of storms pass through early this morning.  It was still thundering pretty frequently when I got up to lift weights, but by the time I finished an hour later we were down to just a steady rain.

I geared up and took off on the bike for what was actually a pretty nice ride.  Traffic was down and calm, the wind was relatively quiet, and the temperature warm.  In fact, it was so warm that I got really wet under my Showers Pass rain gear, especially the pants.  I couldn’t tell if they might have soaked through, or if I was just collecting that much sweat and humidity underneath.  I’m thinking I probably need to wash and treat the pants…they’re more than a couple years old and I’ve never done that yet.  They’re getting kind of grimy from the winter yuckiness I’ve ridden through lately.

I’m gearing up for a fun weekend adventure on the Surly, so it’s in need of a good cleaning and lubing after a couple of rainy rides.  I’m hoping I can get that done tonight!

God bless…
