a rainy spin

monday was 61 degrees…imagine me not riding. after a power pack breakfast of my famous buckwheat-hemp-cashew butter pancakes (ask me for the recipe), i set out to get a few miles in at the park to add to the 20 from sunday out with the mtir’s. with sun beamin’ all up and down, there was no way i was doing the “hamster-in-the-wheel” through the park…i had to escape from new york. made it to midway across the gw bridge, when i noticed a strange cloud rain nebulous approaching me. famous last words “just because it looks like a rain cloud doesn’t mean its raining”. i’ll let the photo-essay tell the next part.

while dodging dry air -because there was no way i was avoiding the shower – i managed to assist a fellow cyclist change a flat. the storm slacked up, but the drenching wet bib, jersey, and jacket had me colder than a polar bear’s toe nail. yes, i hopped right onto the 168th st stop a caught the downtown a train. at least i got 44 miles in for the week.
