wet wet wet

The radar as I left the house

I don’t know the last time I was so miserable on two wheels for so long a time.

I set out in the rain to ride to the Canby Ferry, but by the time I got to Oregon City, I had had enough.  That was possibly the wettest ride I’ve ever done and I was very glad to pull into the driveway after 70km.  Not the 100 I had set out to do, but a good effort nonetheless.

I didn’t have the fortitude to stop for many pictures, but I think that this one gets the point across best:

high water

I have to say I am tired of riding in this rain.  This isn’t the run-of-the mill Portland rain.  It’s heavy and relentless instead of the general glum drizzle we’re accustomed to.

  1. I don’t know if you finished off the Festive 500 – I do know my riding conditions were a lot more mellow than yours, here in Los Angeles.
