Three Days of Rain

The whole weekend was a washout for riding. This morning's commute was routine. Thanks to Vice President Gore, the internet is available to everyone, and there are good bike videos to watch.

The following was first noticed on Planetary Gears, a bike shop in Minnesota. It's a two part (youtube, limits videos to 10 minutes), video of bike tourning in 1955 Great Brittain.

  1. You stop riding because it's raining?

  2. Responding to your comment --

    I am reading that a "washout" means that it's really seriously raining like a flash flood. I didn't actually know that it meant that. I was thinking that it meant failure or disappointment (which it can also mean).

    My mistake.
