Riding in the Rain

I don't know what it was, but the other night while there was a bit of drizzle in the air, my journey seemed a lot faster. It felt like the bit of rain on the roads made the surface like a smooth track and it was as if I was flowing across the tarmac.

As others walked home shielding themselves from above, I sliced my way through the moist air without a care that as getting hit by rain drops.

So instead of battling against the weather, cycling uses it to it's advantage.

Let's see how it goes as it gets colder.


  1. I don't know what's going on out there but the traffic has been absolutely awful for the last week. Massive queues at roundabouts, junctions and so on. Of course I just whizz past all that on my bike thinking about how miserable those people crawling along in their 4x4s are. Also makes it feel like I'm making great time since I'm overtaking so many cars.

  2. It was absolutely chucking down on Friday night. It didn't really slow me down at all, not sure if I was any faster though. I was soaked through when I got home.
