Big Rain

I got a bit of a late start this evening riding home.  Because I left late I got drenched from the waste down.   It not only poured.  It was one of those rains that reminds you that you are in Germany.

It is not necessarily a pleasant thing bicycling in the rain and having road splat from trucks and cars wash onto you.  I know my friends Hank and Dave wouldn’t mind they.   They are much tougher than me.  I think rain is a deal breaker at the start of the ride.

I think I am about properly geared except my shoes, I am going to have to look for some waterproof shoes or something like the shoe covers I wear in cold weather.  Everything else was pretty dry including the inside of my bags.

There was one thing that was funny that happened to me on my ride home.  The two groundskeepers for my school pulled up along side of me in there vehicle and started pacing me and encouraging me to pedal faster.  They made an otherwise unpleasant ride fun and gave me a laugh.  I could just see one of them now with his arms outside the car cheering me on.

Now I hope everything dries by tomorrow at 0500 for the ride in or it might be a bit chilly.
