the mystery of the dissolving cyclists!

Blinking flip it rained! And then, just for fun, it rained some more! here comes the rain!

I looked out of the office window as the clouds emptied themselves on the traffic below, and thought “Crikey, I’m gonna get wet… can’t wait, bring it on!”

So, one quick change later, (3/4 bibs and overshoes), it was time to head out into the traffic and start the 15 mile trip home.

The route home, (especially the bit in Bath), usually has plenty of cyclists, weaving in and out of the traffic and grinding their way up the hills from the city. But today I didn’t see a single one on my way home… it was like the rain had dissolved them all!

Is this what really happens? Does the rain literally dissolve either cyclists or their bikes? I mean I’ve hear of acid rain, but I hadn’t realised it was so serious a problem!!! :D

Or just maybe folk look at the wet stuff and simply don’t fancy it? “Fair weather cyclists” not wanting to get a bit damp.

Well just remember, there is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes. A pair of overshoes, a lightweight rain jacket and away you go.

We enjoyed a cracking ride home, even the cars gave extra passing space.

And now, yes Betsy sits drying, but nothing else changes, the kit still gets a wash and I still head for a shower… and guess what, I don’t seem to have dissolved! ;)
