Busy, rainy weekend. Cabin fever set in Sunday evening, and there was a short break in the clouds. It started as a lap around the neighborhood just to stretch my legs, and ended up being a short ride around the area.
I discovered that the guarantee for a slow, leisurely ride is to wear street clothes. Bike gear is great and comfortable, but it makes positively no sense to ride fast wearing cordoroy pants and a heavy wool shirt. Cruising along on the LHT, checking out the effects of the latest rain storm, in a mild drizzle, is good enough.
