Yesterday I made a point of not wearing my rain gear. It rained like crazy.
...Not that I got out riding
In the last couple days, we desert-dwellers have already gotten more rain than we got all last summer. Hooray for over 5 inches of rain!
On the news, they interviewed some poor, soaked, incoherent biker who made NO sense. Had they stopped me (more correctly, had I allowed them to talk to me), I would have said something like "HELL YEAH! RIDE IN RAIN! RAIN AWESOME! YOU NO RIDE, YOU TOTAL WUSSY!"
That's how you win people over to year-round commuting.
