100% chance of AWESOME!
Christmas Eve was looking wet, we had 100% chance of rain all morning and I was still on the fence about going. I wokeup and it was raining and wet and dark. I sat on the couch for a few minutes before deciding to go back to bed or going to ride. I decided it was better to give it a shot. It was raining but not quite pouring, in my rain jacket but expecting to get fully soaked. The wind was moving and the rain was sideways but I just rode on in the dark rain. It was exhilerating riding in the dark rain, the excitement and thrill was fun. I went up and down Hawes to stay on the good trails to not leave any marks. The wind and rain kicked up a notch and I was still very comfortable. After 3 hours I was cooked and headed for the car to change and dry off, those showers are the best after ceaned up. I think my shoes took 3 days to dry out. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat and now I am ready for Christmas!
