Fridays ride was a gamble, I played with the kiddo at arcade that morning as alot of rain fell overnight and thru the day. I was watching the radar most the morning and knew I was riding in the rain if it was coming down. It was cold and wet as I headed for the trailhead. I was improperly prepared as far as jacket and gloves but I would survive otherwise. As I was driving there was some minor clearing and maybe my ride would not start or end in rain. I got pedaling up the neighborhood and ground was wet but jacket dry. When I got to dirt things were looking spectacular, I dropped in on a epic scene of low desert clouds and rain storms. The first hour was oh so perfect, distracted by beautful desert scenery and then a little rain came. Then quite a bit of rain came, the rain didn't completely soak my clothes until the last 15 minutes where it was uncomfortable but still I would do it all over again in a heartbeat!
