Saving Up Nice Days for Rainy Ones
As many of you know, I have not ridden my bike since Felkerino’s and my completion of the Endless Mountains 1000K on August 28, 2010.
“Gersemalina, are you going to keep mentioning that 1000K in every post?”
Why yes, I think I am.
“Isn’t that bragging?”
“Isn’t that socially unacceptable bragging?”
I suppose that’s true, but I’m going to keep doing it until I write my ride report.
“I sure hope you write it soon, then.”
OK, back to my story. Walking around town in the awesome temperatures today got me wishing I could just bottle up the weather and save it for a day when the weather was not so perfect. Say, rainy. Or cold. Really humid. Boiling hot. Or super windy.
You could also use the nice day exchange program in the event you were kept late at the office, have a sore body part, don’t feel well, or have some other conflict that keeps you from enjoying the perfect weather.
I know randonneurs ride in anything, and everything that falls outside of a perfect day is excellent brevet training. However, days like the ones we’ve been having in Washington, D.C., are tough for a cyclist to watch pass by without turning over a pedal.
I haven’t worked out the details of this bad weather for nice weather exchange plan, but I’m determined to figure it out. If you’ve got any ideas, let me know.
