Drenched…but the first time in a long time

I read an interesting statistic a while back that basically said that if you commute by bike in the UK, despite our highly changable weather, you’ll only cycle in the rain 12 times a year, on average.

Hard to believe, but, today I cycled in proper rain for the first time in AGES. It’s the first time I’ve tried out my day-glo waterproof in real rain and I first posted about that on October 3rd. OK, I did have a week off driving to work (why was that??? can’t remember now), but it kinda helps prove the point.

Anyway, the waterproof proved to be very much so but I got very soggy bottoms and socks and shoes. Riding home in wet gear isn’t fun. Must remember waterproof over-trousers and over-shoes next time.

I have a bit of a backlog of posts to write but not much time at the moment. Hopefully I’ll get to catch up soon. Sally’s not so well tonight so she’s gone to bed early and I get a little time that I wouldn’t normally have. Bless her.
