Anyone else love riding in torrential rain?
Only when its warm, in’t summer, of course.
The skies gone black, and its absolutely bucketing down. Its looking like we might have some thunder and lightning thrown in too. Its still warm though. I’ve got 15 miles to ride home, and no waterproofs
I’m actually really looking forward to it 😀Posted 4 years agobadllamaMember
Having spent many a time communting in the stuff over the past 2 summers and in a forma life working in the stuff day in day out, week in week out in some cases! I have to say
Now going out into the woods after the rain now that is very special indeed especially when the sun breaks through 🙂
I love this video with that in mindPosted 4 years agoashfanmanMember
The torrential rain this morning washed buckets of rancid sweat from the pads in my helmet into my mouth. Tasted foul.
Was out in the thunder storm the other day, and quite enjoying myself, until the rain started soaking up the sweat from my helmet and running into my mouth. Salty and really quite unpleasant.
But, in principle: Yes, I enjoy riding in the (warm) rain. 🙂Posted 4 years agofarm-boyMember
I do, but I live in W Australia and it rarely rains, is always warm and riding in the rain reminds me of home.
Did a great night ride on Tuesday. Sideways rain drops lashing off of my eye balls as I flew down a fire road with zero visibility.
Back to dry and dusty next week. Again.Posted 4 years agoCheezpleezSubscriber
I was out on my own a year to two back, feeling a bit down and not really enjoying the ride. Then the heavens opened and I was instantly saturated and the trails were running rivers.. All of a sudden the ride became an event and an adventure. It lifted my spirits no end and I stayed out playing till I started shivering. Unforgettable.Posted 4 years agoGrahamSSubscriber
An unidentified squeak has plagued my bike for weeks. Possibly pedal, cleat, crank or bottom bracket.
Riding home yesterday in the thunderstorm I went through my normal underpass and.. err.. badly misjudged how deep the flooding was 😕
And now the squeak has gone!
Proof that riding in the rain is a good thing. 😀Posted 4 years ago
