Sweet Jesus, Please Stop the Rain

I am thinking the unthinkable.

I am thinking of getting a road bike.

It has rained for 13 of the last 19 days. The last dry spell was 3 days and the trails had just begun to firm up to a soft tacky consistency when the rain returned. Today's forecast was partly cloudy (it would have been the 2nd dry day) but it is now 5:00 pm and it has been raining - steadily - since 8:00 this morning.

Would anyone blame me if I went to the dark side?



  1. Slippery..... sweet.... jesus!

  2. I started looking at bikes last week under the borrowing rule I hold myself to. If you need to borrow twice, you should buy. Well, triathalon coming up, can't borrow the bike again.....see where I'm going. Justification.
