The rain had me stir-crazy enough this weekend that it eventually had to be ignored. Sunday afternoon, I headed out for a ten miler on the single speed.
At one point, the rain was coming down so heavy that I decided to pull off and take some refuge under a rail road bridge.
A couple minutes after I pulled underneath the massive concrete tomb, a train rolled in. It was alarmingly loud. My break didn't last long, though. I was starting to get cold and the rain let up enough to allow visibility to get home.
I love having a bike that I don't have to worry about in the rain. One gear, nothing to break down and lots of opportunity for sloppy riding. Everyone should have a single speed bike.
