40s and rain

Monday, October 19th, 2009

Last week, I unwittingly had my first rainy ride in the 40s of the year. I was about halfway through my ride when the rain started. Riding in a chilly rain can be downright miserable, but this time, I enjoyed every moment of it. Fortunately, it didn’t rain too hard, and I was dressed warmly enough.

Sometimes I really enjoy riding in less-than-ideal conditions. The roads were quiet and there’s something beautiful (if ominous) about a drab grey sky contrasting with a colorful landscape. And once the rain started, fog started to roll in, shrouding the hills.

    I LOVE the photos. Thanks. I wish it looked like that around North Texas…

    Every time I post something on my blog I like, I come over here and look at your photos and am humiliated. If you weren’t such a nice guy…

    It’s also kinda strange how you write things that I’ve said to myself while riding. Dude, you’re freaking me out.

    Do I have a twin I didn’t know about?

    Bloomington area is a beautiful place, even in crappy weather!

    As long as I can stay warm, I love to ride in the rain. Looks like I might get a chance to do so, tomorrow morning. Rain/snow mix forecast here in Denver, after 84 degrees for a high 2 days ago.

    Ah, Fall in the Rockies…
