Riding in the rain

just riding in the rain
What a glorious feelin'
I'm happy again.
I'm laughing at clouds.
So dark up above
The sun's in my heart
And i'm ready for love.

So I've plagiarized, but I rode through the parks today and LOVE riding in the rain. It was anywhere from a mist to a steady light rain with some drizzles thrown in for good measure.

It's cyclocross season and these cooler temps are lovely. Low 60s, I wore my short sleeved skinsuit and a windbreaker and felt good. I had my headband on so my ears were dry. But everything else was soaked. Wool socks keep your feet warm even if they are wet.

Makes me wonder what the weekend races will be like. Rain is predicted throughout and it's been a mist to steady rain since night before last. 


Enjoy your Friday everyone

What, precisely, is a hot lap? Google did not reveal anything worthwhile.

a hot lap is fast and furious, maybe not quite race pace because these are training rides. So there will be a fast lap or two, then a cool down lap. Not sure if this helps. I can only dream that I can hang on to these kids by December and January. That's the goal!

Ah, HAH! Thanks for that. Sounds like quite the training regime.
