I got caught in a ten minute storm today, the rain was coming at me from the side with such force that I thought I'd be pushed off the road. Then suddenly it cleared up, the sun came out, and by the time I got home I was completely dry. Odd. Can't complain though.
I got scalped by a MTB with panniers - the guy had more rear lights than me...... I was feeling like poo and my mind was on the 'school problems'....that's my excuse - could have chased but it was raining and blowing a gale.
That was a tricky ride in. Soaked to the skin by the time I got to the top of my street. Nasty swirling gusty head / cross wind. Struggled to get up to 10mph in some places. Into Blackpool and up to the airport along the main stretch was like a wind tunnel. Checked the airport weather station when I got into the office and wind was 35 with gusts up to 60.
Nice ride in this morning, Generally nice day lots of Sunshine. 4pm strikes it goes a bit dark, by 4.10pm it's raining lightly so carry on jacket less. 5 minutes on a bit damp and it really starts hammering it down. Had to collect my car ironically and got to it like a drowned rat.
Shoes soaked and hopefully will be try for the morning.
