|No longer how I roll anymore|
As for the weekend, I only biked on Saturday. I believe I'm pretty tough and besides my love for biking far outweighs any inconvenience caused by bad weather. I knew there was 100% chance of rain on Saturday but my motto being "there's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing", that sure wasn't going to stop me from biking.
I already know I can handle wet and I can handle cold - turns out I have issues with the combination of the two. The first hour of the bike ride wasn't bad and I almost took off the rain jacket, but holy crap - as I started biking north from Renton it started pouring down. Cold, wet rain. Yes, I know that rain is always wet, but somehow it seems more wet when it's cold. The rain felt like liquid snow.
|What? No fenders? #teamfenders364|
I still haven't figured out the staying dry issue, but that's on me because I still haven't put on front fenders, nor have I gotten rain pants. I'm hoping that will take care of the portable foot bath situation.
|This is exactly what my shoes are like. Seriously|
Lesson finally learned: I will no longer use Kiro 7 as my weather resource. I like their news staff so I'll probably still watch that part of the morning show - but I will ignore Nick from now on - or do the opposite of what he says.
I'll be getting rain pants this evening and hopefully my goretex shoes are dry by now. I still love biking and will forge on through the winter, and hopefully come out on the other side much wiser and a well of biking knowledge.
