Wet and Warm Today here in New England,

March showers bring April showers that bring showers in May and June. Something like that.
Extra clothing packed for a dry arrival is important for a day like today and a comfortable finish.
Most cyclists we know have a very high tolerance for wet. Wet feet go unnoticed until things start to grow from your shoes. My Father use to tell a story about a contest in the jungle during World War Two where a few G.I.'s had a bet going as to how much they could grow. I think it was a joke. He was like that.
Today's riding will be point to point and then back to point one tonight. 30 miles of commute and dealing with the work a day life that makes things like this blog possible.
Bikes are my life. Dealing with the public on the front line is always interesting to say the least. I love it. Knowing what to say and when to say it to who is a skill that takes years. The name of the game is to get the money in the box and the customer on the road, smiling. Simple sometimes, only sometimes.
Topics of conversation about this weeks rainy forecast will be at the top of the list today. They start out with something like "It's too wet to ride" I will be smiling knowing that at the end of the day, I will have ridden without melting one bit. Its always a pleasure because its different and always an adventure. There's nothing like New England in the rain.
