A blog about my love for cycling, the realities of fitting it in around a busy family life and the region in which we now live.

No Excuses... Part 2
So yesterday I posted all about there being no excuse. I was all kitted out, no ducking out of a ride now. As Graeme Obree says - grit your teeth and turn those pedals. The weather gods obviously heard me. The wind picked up and the rain came down. So did the cloud base. Was a fun ride home in the wind, rain and dark.
Look - there's the road. I think...
It rained all night and was still hammering down when I left this morning for work. Luckily I had recently re-proofed my gore-tex jacket. That lovely beading effect lasted all of 10 minutes. Why do they make these jackets without vents? It's like riding in a bin bag...
Time for my morning dip.
Still, the forecast is set to improve this afternoon. There's even mention of something called The Sun?!
