President’s Day Ride in the Rain

by on February 21, 2011

This Ride: 14.6 miles
Month: 377.5 miles
2011: 837.6 miles
Total since 1/1/10: 6,957.3 miles

The weather forecast for the next 24-36 hours is looking nasty, and with President’s Day off work, I decided to get out for a little recovery ride.  That means slow and easy.  I intended to send out a note informing people that I was riding at 10:30, but that was messed up somehow and no one got word.  I rode alone, which was fine, because I could keep it slow.

I also installed my new Fi’zi:k Alliante Versus saddle this morning, so this was the first ride on it.

I rode the trail south from the Ranger Station, and just as I turned around, light rain showers started.  It was 40 degrees and raining.  That sapped a lot of motivation out of me for the planned 20-30 miles.  I was cold and wet and alone and simply rode home.  It was an ok ride for a recovery ride.  I’m actually glad I went.
