There are wonderful things about living in southwestern BC, but recently, the weather has not been one of them. It is hard to suit up to ride when you are already wet. I know some of you die-hards will call me a wuss. I am not really, but I find that if your hands are shaking when you are clutching you can pop it when you mean to slip it. This could clearly launch me over the handlebars...and then on top of being wet, I would have road rash. I have an aversion to road rash, so I don't ride in the rain, knowingly. I have inadvertently.
So, my bike has been sitting idle, getting to know all the others in the garage. They have been idle too, so at least we don't have a jealous thing going on.
