|how much do your like your bike?|
On Tuesday it rained all morning, I was still determined to get out. As I got on my bike the rain stopped and I had a nice warm ride. A little muddy, but still very pleasant. It started raining again as I got home. How great is that?
The bike got fairly muddy; it's amazing how much muck appears when it rains after a long dry period.
As I got to this junction, the rain water was evaporating from the hot tarmac.
Thursday tested my determination; it rained heavily for thirty minutes at the start. Yes, I left the house while it was raining.
Most of the ride was rain free, but the roads were slippery so I took it easy. I arrived home in sunshine, with a grey tan on my legs. It is amazing how much crud you pickup.

I don't usually make a big deal about the distance I ride, everyone has different schedules into which cycling has to have time allocated. But; I did 206 miles this week, despite rain most days. I'm very happy with that. The toughest part is riding alone, I can't wait for group rides.
