Went out for a ride on Sunday thinking it was going to be a nice day. The forcast was for temperatures to hit 75 degrees with a slight chance of some rain. I went out early so it was bit chilly, maybe mid 50's. I was riding with a buddy who was new to the sport and had just recently bought a mountain bike so I took my 15 year old rigid rockhopper out for the first time in a long time. I decided not to wear arm warmers under my jacket and no knee warmers. Long story short it started to pour and the temps didn't budge. An hour and a half ride turned into a 3 hour epic ride on mostly dirt roads with some big hills. I was freezing cold and soaking wet and the only thought that was going through my head was that I should do this more often! I had a blast. By the end of the ride I looked like I had just ridden Paris-Roubaix, just caked with mud and grime and wet and cold to the core. I don't think I would have liked it as much on the road, but the combination of dirt roads, big hills, and the mud did it for me. Anyone else love riding when it's crappy???
