I went for a bike ride despite steady morning rain. It wasn’t too bad… at first.
My friend John Jester and I met up for most of the ride, and for the first 30 miles we enjoyed a drippy but tolerable ride. But once we turned and started riding east, it became substantially less pleasant — I think we had started riding into the weather more. Thereafter, it proved a long slog that finally ended with my defrosting my frozen, blue toes in a warm bath after hanging every scrap of bike clothes up in front of the fireplace to dry.
In the afternoon, the sun came out, rather to my dismay. It seemed a little unfair to spend so much time soaking in the morning only for the sun to come out later.
Benji and I did, however, take advantage by going outside and blowing bubbles. In our household, damp weather is bubble weather!
