Let’s Be Careful Out There

Pretty…

…but dangerous. These suckers are slippery when wet and piled up on the road. Let’s be careful out there today.

The Weather Channel iPhone app let me down. It said no rain. I wore my raincoat anyway, but I left my rain pants at home. Halfway downtown this morning the light mist turned into rain. Hmmmmm… Shouldn’t let apps do my thinking for me.

    The forecast tricked me as well. Rainwear lugged along – FOR NOTHING!

    Tricked me last week. I put my snow tires (700-40 Schwalbe Land Cruiser HS 307) on the cross bike’s HD wheelset but to no avail. Back to slicks this week on the summer wheels.

    I never leave home without clothes to cover any situation I might encounter, including rain gear (all most always) that will roll up about as tight as your fist!!! Rode from Marshfield to Springfield one time with only full rain gear to protect me from weather that turned way colder than predicted. Glad I had it!!!
