Before bringing the kids to school yesterday I checked the hour by hour forecast. It was showing 11:00 as the time the storms would roll through. Before I left on my ride it was moved back to 12:00. Perfect, plenty of time to get my ride in.
I settled in on doing and extended Briggs Lake loop. My legs are tired so I purposely kept the pace pretty easy, just trying to "spin the gunk out". The ride was great till about 1.5 hours in. I could see the dark clouds overcoming the high blanket of clouds. Sprinkles turned to rain and the rain turned into big drops! I was wet...again....ugh!
I actually don't mind riding in the rain I just hate the bike service I "should do" after riding in the rain two days in a row. Oh well, I got a ride in and I felt good.
It's still looking like rain for Saturday up in Grand Marais. Rain during gravel races I do not like. That stuff finds it's way into everything. Disc brakes tend not to last too long either. The gravel acts like sandpaper and rips the pads down to nothing. I checked for different pads (more durable) and they are out of stock. May have some Flintstone stopping going on!
Today is our crazy day. Jen has graduation, Harper has a school picnic this evening, and the other girls have gymnastics. Plus we need to pack for the weekend yet. Only 5 days of school left!
