I usually LOVE rain.

It makes waterfalls and I like chasing waterfalls. I do NOT stick to the rivers and lakes like I’m used to.

But today, I want to ride my bike.

I don’t care to ride on a wet bike path. I have a gravel bike and it can make it.

But with heavy rain outside my door is also lightning.

Lightning can stop me from riding. Quickly. I can’t take that risk.


I sit here, writing this blog, wearing my full cycling kit (spandex and all), waiting for the storms to peter out just enough to go for a quick bike ride.

We’ll see!
